Hyundai IONIQ 5 N finalist for World Performance Car award

Hyundai Motor Company’s IONIQ 5 N has been chosen as one of three finalists for the 2024 World Performance Car award. 

The World Car Awards announced the Top Three in each category for this year’s competition at a ceremony during the Geneva International Motor Show. The World Car Awards is an annual event that involves more than 100 international jurors as they test-drive and vote on a field of eligible vehicles.

The winners of the 2024 World Car Awards will be announced on 27 March at a live awards ceremony during the 2024 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS).

Hyundai Motor’s nominations for this year’s competition reflect the company’s growing stature on the global stage and build on its past success at the World Car Awards. Previously, Hyundai Motor’s IONIQ 5 and IONIQ 6 were back-to-back triple winners of the 2022 and 2023 World Car of the Year, World Electric Vehicle, and World Car Design of the Year, respectively. 

Introduced in July 2023, the IONIQ 5 N represents a new segment of high-performance EVs through new technologies and elevated racetrack capability. It signals the first step in the N brand’s electrification strategy. It combines Hyundai Motor Group’s Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) with N’s motorsport-bred technologies and leverages N’s expertise from electrified “Rolling Labs” to maximize the EV’s high-performance capabilities.
