Welcome to the beating heart of bitter winters.

Sub-zero temperatures. Prolonged darkness. Harsh winds. Winter in Rjukan, Norway and the surrounding regions can be tough to experience. But can a car change all that? The all-electric IONIQ 5 N takes on a challenge like never before.

An epic experiment.

IONIQ 5 N is all set to beat the winter blues with exhilarating drives in the peak of winter. Before and after each drive, our lead neuroscientist Shani Tal and her team measure the brain’s Depth of Joy, or DOJO. In February, several groups of locals from Rjukan and the surrounding regions along with our scientist will meet on a frozen river for a mission like no other.

Designed to boost joy.

IONIQ 5 N is the most powerful EV ever crafted by Hyundai, allowing maximum acceleration, increased torque and an output of up to 478 kW (650hp) – ensuring driving excitement always comes first.

Discover DOJO

Measuring the Depth of Joy.

For the first time ever, the Depth of Joy or ‘DOJO’ will be measured while driving IONIQ 5 N. With neuroscientist Shani Tal leading the experiment, DOJO will be assessed by combining different technologies. These include brain waves, skin conductance, heart rates and more. Then, this information is translated into an “excitement” visualization, that is measured before and after driving IONIQ 5 N.
