Hankook Tire to release new family of EV tires

In May, Hankook Tire will launch iON, its first family of tires specially designed for high-performance, premium electric vehicles. The company says characteristics of the new iON tires include further reduced rolling resistance, notably lower rolling-noise characteristics and high resilience.

The iON products will initially be available in three designs at launch, in sizes between 18-22 in. — in Europe beginning in May 2022 as the Hankook Ventus iON S summer tire pattern, and from September 2022 for the winter as the Hankook Winter i*cept iON. The Hankook Ventus iON A tire will be available as an all-season version for the North American market. Further specific product designs are in the pipeline.

The company says Hankook Sound absorber, in combination with the specific pattern design integrated into the company’s iON products, significantly reduces the interior noise.

According to forecasts by the information service IHS Markit, the global share of battery-powered electric automobiles in total vehicle sales will increase by 36.6% annually, from the current 6.4% market share to 29.5% by 2028.
