Hyundai has unveiled the i20 N WRC 2022 hybrid rally car.

South Korean brand has introduced Hyundai i20 N WRC hybrid rally car.

The novelty of 2022 model year will take part in the World Rally Championship.

The WRC is entering the era of electrification, and Hyundai Motorsport is keen to introduce its 2022 contender before the season begins later this month.

The new car is called the i20 N Rally1 2022 edition and has been designed from the ground up with a hybrid powertrain in mind.

The new 100 kW electric motor will work with the 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine, which is the only part carried over from the 2021 edition car.

The electric motor, supplied by Kreisel Electrics, will provide an additional 134 horsepower, making a combined output of about 500 hp.

According to the rules, drivers will have to use the electric supercharger at every stage of the rally.

Energy will return to the battery through regenerative braking.

The temporary power boost could be unlocked simply by pressing the accelerator pedal, and, as before, the cars would remain four-wheel drive.

Like the other Rally1 cars, the 2022 Hyundai rival will use a simplified five-speed transmission that will not have an inter-axle differential.

In addition, WRC rules for the upcoming season also affect the suspension, which will also be less complex by reducing wheel travel, as well as simpler dampers, hubs and anti-roll bars.

The 2022 version of the i20 N Rally1 will be about 70 kg heavier than its predecessor because of additional equipment driven by a hybrid unit.

Liquid-cooled brakes are no longer allowed, nor are hidden air ducts.

Although it looks awfully familiar on the outside, Hyundai Motorsport’s latest rally car benefits from an all-new steel space-frame chassis conceived to be safer.

The Ford Puma Hybrid Rally1 will be co-driven by Thierry Neville and Ott Tänak as full-time drivers, while Dany Sordo and Oliver Solberg will share the third Rally1 car.

The WRC 2022 season, consisting of 13 stages, will start January 20-23 with the Monte Carlo Rally.
