Hankook Tire & Technology-Tires-iko1
  • Double the Advantage

    The iON evo pushes the limits of trade-offs to reach optimum performance. The iON evo is specifically tailored for electric vehicles, but also equipped with the best of both worlds.

  • Aced All Grades

    Triple A rated in EU Tyre label

    The iON evo achieved a hat-trick in the EU Tyre label grade which is extremely exceptional in the tire industry, and especially first for an EV exclusive tire.

    * EU label grade varies by size. Please refer to specification details below.

DRIVE IN PEACE

Noise Proof Technology

Electric motors are almost soundless which eventually causes the driver to hear more noise from tyres. With the Hankook Sound AbsorberTM, the iON evo offers a quiet and pleasant ride in all speed ranges.

Minimised Tread Pattern Noise

Optimised Multi-Pitch Sequencing
Tire noise can be drastically reduced by optimising the pitch sequence. The iON evo has optimised the number and size of pitches to listen more to what matters.

GO FURTHER FOR MORE EXPERIENCE

Even Tread Wear And Enhanced Mileage

Battery weight makes electric vehicles up to 30% heavier than ICE vehicles, which frequently causes uneven wear on tyres. The iON evo is made of a compound specifically made for electric vehicles to evenly spread road pressure and extend tyre life in a healthier condition.

Extended Tread Life

EVolution Compound
Composed with high-concentration silica and eco-friendly materials, the EVolution compound provides satisfactory mileage andfurther reduced rolling resistance.

Even Tread Wear

Optimised Ground Pressure Distribution
Tires equipped on electric vehicles wear out approximately 20% faster with uneven wear than on ICE vehicles. Designed to spread the ground pressure evenly, the iON evo provides longer usage and less replacement.

CHARGE LESS, CRUISE MORE

Extended Range

Hankook understands the concerns of loosing energy
while driving Electric Vehicles. By reducing the rolling resistance,
the battery lasts longer to drive a longer distance.
A few miles can be crucial during an emergency.

Further Reduced Rolling Resistance

Optimised Curing
The iON evo achieved the highest grade of LRR performance by applying an advanced compound and Hankook tire’s optimised curing technology which improves all parts of the tire equally.

* EU label grade varies by size. Please refer to specification details below.

BE IN COMPLETE CONTROL

Advanced Handling

Designed to bear the initial torque power of electric vehicle motors, the iON evo offers excellent handling and grip performance for premium electric vehicles.

Enhanced Cornering Stability

EV Contour Technology
Tire stiffness is essential to be improved to bear the weight of electric vehicles. Hankook’s EV Contour Technology increases cornering stiffness by 10% to advance electric vehicle handling performance.

Improved Steering at High Speeds

Aramid Hybrid Reinforcement Belt
A reinforcement belt mixed with the most advanced fiber, Aramid, is applied on the iON evo to improve steering performance and maintain an optimised shape during high-speed driving.

Excellent Traction

Extended Shoulder Blocks with Optimised Rigidity
To prevent slippage caused by the high torque of electric vehicles, the pattern block rigidity is optimised with extended outside shoulder blocks for maximum road contact.

GRIP MAINTAINED IN THE RAIN

Enhanced Wet Grip

By achieving grade A in the EU tyre labelling wet grip item
for all available sizes, the iON evo provides guaranteed wet performance without missing noise reduction to
maximize driving pleasure.

Wet Performance without missing Noise Reduction

Expanding Lateral Grooves
The lateral grooves are designed narrower on the inside to reduce air-pumping noise, and wider on the outside to secure wet performance. This is another double advantage of the iON evo.

Optimised Groove Size
To prevent groove resonance while driving, the iON evo has optimised the size of grooves. Expanding the 2 grooves on the inside wider has also improved drainage performance.
