Hankook collaborates with virtual influencer “Mono Mars” in Formula E

Hankook has secured intergalactic reinforcement for its Formula E activities: loveable AI robot Mono Mars will help the premium tyre maker – official partner of Season 9 of the electric racing series – to reach motorsport fans all over the world. Inspired by the Mars rovers, Mono Mars is represented on the major social networks and has over 110,000 followers on Instagram, who follow his experiences on earth and in space. With his friendly, unmistakable Metaverse character, he is growing in popularity around the world, as he combines space and technology-oriented content with current topics like climate change and environmental pollution.

Hankook and Mono Mars share core values with regard to topics like “sustainability” and “innovative technology”, making them the perfect match. The two partners are creating shared social media content on the fully-electric racing series, and are striving to communicate closely with motorsport fans and younger target groups.
