Hankook Tire Europe has announced that it has equipped Volkswagen's electric ID. Buzz with its premium rolling resistance-optimized Ventus S1 evo 3 ev tyres.

The tyre is specifically designed for battery-powered vehicles and has been tuned to meet the high permissible total weight of the ID. Buzz. The Ventus S1 evo 3 ev tyre is characterized by exemplary rolling resistance, weight, load-bearing capacity, and comfort. It also fulfills the specifications in an exemplary manner in terms of abrasion resistance, stability, and acoustic comfort. The tyre's tread design also ensures low noise emissions, which are reduced further in electric vehicles.

Compared to a B-rated tyre, the label A Ventus S1 evo 3 ev can increase the range of the vehicle up to 30 km per battery charge. The 21-inch version features an aerodynamically optimized contour of the rim protection strip, which also contributes to more reach, and an additional steel-based reinforcement in the bead area that ensures a dynamic, direct steering feedback. The HL 235/45 R21 104T XL and HL 265/40 R21 108T XL for the ID. Buzz are the first passenger car tyes with the "HL" load index designation in Hankook's portfolio. The Ventus S1 evo 3 ev in HL is adapted to the higher vehicle weight of electric transporters, supporting the driving characteristics of the VW ID. Buzz.

The 21-inch dimension of the Ventus S1 evo 3 ev for the ID. Buzz is also equipped with the Hankook SEALGUARD® sealing material, which automatically seals punctures of up to five millimetres in diameter in the area of the tyre tread. The SEALGUARD® technology eliminates the need for a potentially dangerous roadside wheel change, providing additional space in the boot and saving weight.

"Hankook and Volkswagen have been working together successfully for many years. Developing the tyres for the VW ID. Buzz represents another highlight of this cooperation. It makes us proud that this car, reminiscent of the globally popular original 'Bulli', will be delivered with Hankook tyres straight from the factory."
Sanghoon Lee, President of Hankook Tire Europe
