Hankook’s Kinergy AS ev Tire Wins IDEA Award
Hancook’s Kinergy AS ev tire combines advanced technology to create a hyper-low noise environment with improved driving performance and comfort—a mass production model. It was acknowledged for its innovative design for electric drives.
The Kinergy AS ev tire has hyper-low noise environment optimized for electric vehicles. The tire’s comfort, driving and handling performance are comparable to high performance passenger tires. It’s block design, modelled after electric circuits, and its customized electrical vehicle sidewall design provide an improved aerodynamic performance and the best driving environment in various conditions.
In addition, several noise-reducing technologies were applied and an aramid hybrid reinforcement belt exclusive to electric vehicles was used to minimize tread block distortion when changing direction. Hankook Tire also integrated a technology optimizing the pitch arrangement to reduce a certain frequency that incurs when driving. This feature helps to maintain optimum grip force to provide exquisite handling performance and significantly improves handling stability.
With the IDEA 2018 Award, Hankook Tire has been acknowledged for its design philosophy and infinite potentials to lead the future driving environment.
