    Hyundai is readying one of its most prolific EVs for a crown chase at this year’s 102nd running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) in late June. Two 641 hp IONIQ 5 Ns are attempting to set the Electric Production SUV/Crossover record which has no record. The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb rules require the stock IONIQ 5 N to be equipped with safety equipment including a Recaro Pro Racer SPA Hans seat, Sabelt six-point HANS compatible seat belts, the rear seats were removed, and a roll cage with fire suppression system was installed.

    In every other way, the IONIQ 5 N being prepared for Pikes Peak is a standard IONIQ 5 N.

    The drivers of the IONIQ 5 Ns going for the Electric Production SUV/Crossover record are Paul Dallenbach and Ron Zaras. Dallenbach is an eleven-time PPIHC winner and set an overall record in 1993.

    The Electric Production Car record was set in 2020 by a 2018 Tesla Model 3 at 11:02.802 while the Electric Production Truck/Van was set in 2023 with a 2022 Rivian R1T at 11:23.983.

    In addition, Hyundai will debut a pair of modified spec IONIQ 5 Ns to compete at PPIHC. These IONIQ 5 Ns will be driven by Dani Sordo and Robin Shute. Shute is a four-time overall winner and King of the Mountain title holder at Pikes Peak. Sordo is a Spanish World Rally Championship driver for Hyundai Motorsport.

    The Hyundai IONIQ 5 N was designed with enhanced structural elements, World Rally Championship-inspired integrated drive axles, increased thermal management, N-tuned brakes, and an industry leading brake regenerative force of 0.6G.

    IONIQ 5 N motor output: 223/378 HP front/rear (601 hp combined) w/ a short time boost to 641 hp
    IONIQ 5 N 0 – 60 mph: 3.2 seconds
    Top speed: 162 mph (electronically limited)

    The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb was first run in 1916 and is the second oldest race in America. “The Race to the Clouds” is held annually near the end of June on Pikes Peak near Colorado Springs, Colorado. The famous 12.42-mile course consists of 156 turns, boasts an elevation gain of 4,725 feet, and reaches a finish line at 14,115 feet above sea level. The current all-time open modified class race record was set in 2018 by Romain Dumas and Volkswagen in the all-electric I.D. R Pikes Peak in just 07:57.148.

    Edmund's conducted tests for a number of EV brands in different categories. They liked the Ioniq 6. KIA EVs were liked the most, one being the KIA hybrid Sportage. Edmund's favorite full EV was the KIA EV9, & chosen as their top choice of all EVs.

    There are STILL people who buy The Suburban today.
    Their calendar must be stuck at 1981.

    Despite what I said about Suburbans, EV9 type vehicles are still needed. Vans, too.

    I give Hyundai/Kia credit for forging ahead with EV expansion despite others pulling back a bit.

    Finally.
    Plus, they need to make EVs in the US, so I can get the $7500 tax credit (when I can afford it, even with the tax credit).
    & make one under 14 feet so I can get the Ferry discount.
    All my over-sized tires/wheels from the Elantra will also fit the Hyundai/KIA EVs.
