High Technology

Electrified, Hankook

Even in EVs, which have emerged as the key to future mobility, driving remains significant as the essence of tires. From comfort and relaxation as well as the pride of enabling the ultimate performance of vehicles, the innovative sensibility felt while traveling in EVs completes the true essence of driving.

Hankook Tire's EV tires do not only support heavy load compared to conventional tires but also offer the friction and grip force of a higher standard to deliver powerful acceleration to the road surface without any loss. They are technology-intensive tires that come with low-noise technology as engine noise has disappeared.

Furthermore, we have launched the 'Electrified, Hankook' campaign to allow our customers to learn Hankook Tire's cutting-edge technology, quality, and eco-conscious policies for EVs that will shape the future of mobility. As a reliable partner of global premium EVs and an overwhelming leader in the EV tire market, we spread our message beyond technology to the world.


Motorsport

Motorsport provide us with the thrilling fever of dashing cars. However, it is also a venue defined by grueling challenges for tires to consistently push beyond their limits under extreme driving conditions.

As a sponsor of a variety of motorsport competitions at home and abroad, we race towards the great potential of tires. We stand witness to the stunning records of all drivers across the world to create a new chapter in the driving culture.

Brand Collaboration

End-of-Life Tire Upcycling Project

Hankook Tire launched a project to recycle waste tires, which are generated every year in billions of units, in order to create a sustainable future for all together with our customers. As the first step of that, Hankook Tire collaborated with Musinsa's shoe brand, YASE to carry out the ‘Upcycling Shoes Project’ to recycle waste tires in 2021. In 2022, Hankook Tire collaborated with tire upcycling shoe brand 'Tread & Groove' to introduce recycled sneakers 'HK Groovy' by applying waste tires to the sole (outsoles) of shoes. Hankook Tire will continue to make meaningful progress in considering the future of the global environment together with various shoe brands.
