Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo
The Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo perfectly encapsulates the passion surrounding the high-performance technology that goes into “N" and serves as a commemoration of Hyundai's 50th anniversary in 2017.
This exciting machine offers a glimpse of what's in store for the next-generation of high-performance vehicles, and showcases the unique characteristics that represent what N performance is all about.
The Ultimate Future Design High-Performance Technology
The N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo concept gets its inspiration from aeronautics, specifically from the testing grounds at Rogers Dry Lake (formerly Muroc Dry Lake) where pilots and astronauts have trained, risking their lives to further the pursuit of aeronautics and aviation for over 50 years (as seen in the Hollywood blockbuster ‘The Right Stuff’).
The innovative and audacious spirit these test pilots brought to Muroc, which was once just a dry lake bed in this area, was the source of inspiration and motif for the design of the Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo.
The N 2025 powertrain is based on the world’s 1st mass-produced hydrogen fuel cell, developed by Hyundai in 2013. It features a total output of 640kw (884PS) from dual fuel cell stacks that provide 500kw (680PS) and a super capacitor system that generates an extra 150kw (204PS) by using energy from regenerative braking. All this power is delivered by the eco-friendly yet powerful IIDC (Independent In-wheel motor Drive Control) system.
The flexible CFRP monocoque structure and compact lightweight fuel cell stacks keep the car extremely lean at just 972 kg, giving it a power-to-weight ratio that rivals the most exotic supercars. While a low center of gravity and the IIDC make this car equally enjoyable on the track.
Total System Power
1Dual Fuel Cell
The compact, lightweight dual fuel cell stacks provide 50kW (680PS) of electric power through a chemical reaction of hydrogen and oxygen.2Super Capacitor
The super capacitor system generates an additional 150kW (204PS) by using energy regenerated during braking and idling.
Four ultra-high speed independent in-wheel motors create the remarkable power that comes from the fuel cell system to provide optimal traction.4Liquid Hydrogen Tank
The liquid hydrogen tank is made from carbon-fiber for both safety and weight reduction. The tank was designed in a U-shape to achieve optimal weight distribution with a low center of gravity
5Motor Control Unit
The IIDC (Independent In-wheel motor Drive Control) system controls power delivery that best demonstrates itself on a challenging racetrack, especially on the chicane, where N cars really shine.
