Premium tyre makers Hankook Tires have released a new and improved tyre line for electric vehicles. The new tyre is called Hankook iON and is the first of many Hankook tyres that will be designed specifically for electric cars. Unlike conventional tyres, Hankook iON is designed to emit little to no rolling noise and can withstand the energy and torque level present in electric vehicles. The tyre is highly resilient and is designed to increase comfort and speed while driving. The Hankook company has decided to get into tyre development for electric vehicles to contribute to the development of zero-emission driving.
The Hankook iON tyre has many excellent features that make it stand out among other tyres. As one of the biggest manufacturers of original vehicle parts, Hankook Tires has put in its best effort to make Hankook iON a big success among its peers.
● Low rolling resistance. This reduces energy loss and saves battery power.
● Hankook iON has a higher load capacity to support the battery weight in electric vehicles.
● It uses sound absorber technology to give you a noiseless driving experience.
● It uses ultra-resistant aramid fibres to increase tyre durability. You never have to worry about punctures or holes in your tyres again!
Hankook Tires have been manufacturing tyres for about 80 years and has grown into one of the best tire manufacturing companies worldwide. The Hankook iON marks a new stage in their company as they venture into creating optimised tires for electric vehicles. Their goal with Hankook iON is to create premium quality tires that can increase the efficiency of electric cars.
The Hankook iON tires hit the European market in May of 2022. It comes in 2 sizes: 18 inches and 22 inches. There are three tire designs: the Hankook Ventus iON S summer tyre, launched in Europe in May 2022; the winter tyre Hankook Winter i*cept iON, which will be found in September of 2022; and the Hankook Ventus iON A, which is available all year long in North America.
The summer Hankook Ventus iON S is available at Tyre Northampton. The summer tyre contains lots of natural oils and silica that make it extraordinarily sustainable and durable. The presence of natural oils also makes it lighter and reduces the overall weight of the vehicle.
The light proportion of silica in the summer tyre also helps to improve micro-level tyre grip on wet roads. This makes it an excellent choice for drivers in Northampton, which has near-constant rain. The Hankook Ventus iON S tyre pattern is designed to reduce air resistance in the tire.
The winter tire, Hankook Winter i*cept iON, is designed to function efficiently in snow, and will be an intelligent tire option for Northampton electrical vehicle users once winter hits hard in December.
Overall, Hankook Tires have put together three fantastic tire designs for the Hankook iON and have made a big step toward revolutionising the electric vehicle industry with its tires.
