Award-winning: Hankook iON comes out on top in Auto Bild tyre check for EVs

“Very good” for the Hankook iON evo: The premium tyre developed specially for electric vehicles (EVs) was awarded the top mark in the latest tyre check performed by one of the leading German automobile trade publications, Auto Bild. The magazine’s experts compared three premium summer tyres with the dimensions 245/45 R 19 102 Y on a Tesla Model S and tested whether top performance and excellent safety properties were compatible with the requirement for the lowest possible roll resistance to benefit maximum range. Auto Bild’s positive conclusion was: “With the iON evo from the Hankook brand, designed especially for e-cars, we are not forced to choose between safety and driving pleasure on the one hand, and range and environment on the other. The balancing act between the wildly different requirements has been a convincing success.”

For decades, Hankook has been one of the first ports of call when it comes to international motorsport. Hankook supplies its race tyres to globally-renowned series, high-class junior formats and popular grassroot events. With new collaborations and partnerships, the company is constantly enhancing its status as a global player on the motorsport scene. Since the 2023 season, Hankook has been the new and exclusive technical partner and tyre supplier of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. In close cooperation with Formula E, the iON Race was developed for the world championship. Roughly 30 percent of the high-performance tyre is made of sustainable materials. With this commitment, Hankook is taking another pioneering step towards energy efficiency and sustainability in motorsport. The premium tyre maker has also agreed a further collaboration with Italian sports car manufacturer Lamborghini Squadra Corse and has been official technical partner and exclusive tyre supplier of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo since 2023. Hankook’s portfolio covers a broad spectrum. This includes the 24H Series powered by Hankook, one of the most prestigious endurance series in the world, as well as the FIA ERC4 Junior Championship on the rally scene. Hankook also supports popular touring car championship TCR Italy, many high-class one-make cups for a wide range of renowned manufacturers, junior single-seater series, and assorted international racing events with race tyres and technical know-how.
