N’s roots and vision, Hyundai Motor is showcasing its latest motorsport
challenger and two dynamic concepts during the motor show, the New Generation
i20 WRC, RM15 and the Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo. The ‘Hyundai N 2025
Vision Gran Turismo’ concept, inspired by N, will be coming exclusively to
PlayStation’s Gran Turismo video game series.
The Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran
Turismo powertrain is based on the world’s first mass-produced hydrogen fuel
cell system. The total system output is 650 kW (871 HP), with the dual fuel
cell stacks providing 500 kW (670 HP), and the super capacitor system
generating an additional 150 kW (201 HP) by using energy regeneration when
braking. This remarkable power is delivered through four high-powered
independent in-wheel motors, which provide uncompromised traction.
Based on the New Generation
i20, the i20 WRC Rally Car is the preview for the vehicle that will compete in
the 2016 FIA World Rally Championship. Featuring optimised weight distribution,
greater powertrain efficiency and enhanced aerodynamics, the car is already
undergoing a punishing testing, engineering and development regime in build up
