Why the Ventus S1 evo 3 ev Stands Out

Electric vehicles, such as the Hyundai Ioniq 6, have unique tyre requirements compared to their internal combustion counterparts. The primary focus for EV tyres is achieving low rolling resistance and minimal weight. This ensures that vehicles like the Hyundai Ioniq 6 can maximise their impressive range of over 550 kilometres on a single battery charge.

However, the challenge doesn't end there. The batteries that power EVs add significant weight, necessitating tyres with a high load index. Hankook's Ventus S1 evo 3 ev manages to meet these demands with aplomb. The tyre boasts a double-layer carcass constructed from a special high-performance fibre, ensuring remarkable stability while maintaining a surprisingly low weight for its size.

Furthermore, the tread compound of the Ventus S1 evo 3 ev is crafted to handle the high drive torques typical of electric vehicles. This results in exceptional grip on both wet and dry surfaces, ensuring safety and performance in various driving conditions.

A Partnership Forged in Innovation

Sanghoon Lee, President of Hankook Tire Europe, expressed his gratitude towards Hyundai for their trust in Hankook's premium tyres. "We are very pleased with the confidence Hyundai has shown in our premium tyres, and that the Ventus S1 evo 3 ev will be used in its new top electric model," Lee said. This collaboration not only strengthens Hankook's position in the original equipment business but also underscores its commitment to the electric mobility revolution.

Hankook's Ventus S1 evo 3 ev for the Hyundai Ioniq 6 is a testament to the company's forward-thinking approach and dedication to excellence.
