  • TÜV SÜD - Tyre Test Result

  • Double the Advantage

    Thanks to iON INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, The iON evo pushes the limits of trade-offs to reach optimum performance. The iON evo is specifically tailored for electric vehicles, but it is 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 tyre industry, and especially first for an EV exclusive tyre.

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

DRIVE IN PEACE

Noise Proof Technology

Electric motors are almost soundless, which results in the driver hearing more noise from the tyres. With the i Sound Absorber Technology, the iON evo offers a quiet and pleasant ride at all speed ranges.

Minimised Tread Pattern Noise

Optimised Multi-Pitch Sequencing through Opti Pitch Technology
Tyre noise can be drastically reduced by applying Opti Pitch Technology. 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

The battery weight makes electric vehicles up to 30% heavier than ICE vehicles, which frequently causes uneven wear on the tyres. The iON evo is made of ProDurable Compound specifically made for electric vehicles to extend tyre life in a healthier condition. iON evo through Round Even Technology evenly spreads out road pressure by optimising the contact structure and provides the overall lifespan with uniform tread wear.

Extended Tread Life

ProDurable Compound
Composed of advanced fillers and flexible rubber materials, ProDurable Compound provides higher mileage.

Even Tread Wear

Round Even Technology
Tyres equipped on electric vehicles wear out approximately 20% faster with uneven wear than on ICE vehicles. iON evo achieves uniform contact pressure by optimising contact structure through Round Even Technology. The iON evo provides longer usage and less frequent replacement.

CHARGE LESS, CRUISE MORE

Extended Range

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

Further Reduced Rolling Resistance

Opti Cure technology
The iON evo achieved the highest grade of LRR performance by applying Opti Cure Technology which improves all parts of the tyre 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

Grip Boost Technology
It is essential to improve tyre stiffness to bear the weight of electric vehicles. Grip Boost Technology increases cornering stiffness by 10% to improve the electric vehicle’s 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 maximise 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.
