Hankook Launches iON Family of Tires for EVs

The Hankook iON tires achieve the highest tire noise rating possible – they’re really quiet

  • The iON will be offered in three versions: Ventus iON S summer tire, Winter i*cept iON, and Ventus iON A all-season.

  • It features low rolling resistance technology and higher resilience against high-torque electric motors.

Electric vehicles pose a number of challenges. From charging to the range, they’ve forced the collective to re-evaluate how we do certain things. Not all is bad however as EVs are generally very entertaining to drive but they can be a headache for tires. Hankook has just launched a dedicated collection of tires for EVs.
