Hankook tires on display
Hankook will showcase its latest high-performance flagship tires and the iON evo summer tire, from the latest addition to Hankook’s premium electric vehicle portfolio, the iON range. Characteristics of the iON evo tire include reduced rolling resistance, extremely low rolling noise and high load-bearing capacity. For drivers of electric vehicles, this means more range per battery charge and a better driving experience compared to conventional tires. The new Hankook iON tire is also specifically designed for the instant high torques produced by powerful electric vehicles.
Hankook’s ultra-high-performance tire, the Ventus S1 evo Z is designed with proven motorsport technology to ensure high performance of premium segment sports cars at high speed. The Ventus S1 evo Z marks a new era in Hankook’s high-end tire portfolio, streamlined for highly demanding sports cars that need that extra bit of grip without compromising durability and safety. This ultra-high-performance tire is used as original equipment by leading premium manufacturers of sports vehicles including the BMW X3 and X4 M, the MINI John Cooper Works GP, and the Porsche Panamera. The Ventus S1 evo 3 demonstrates superior handling performance without compromising the mileage capabilities and ride comfort. It is the OE fitment for leading car makers like Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche.
