Hankook Tire continues to expand its original equipment portfolio for electric vehicle (EV) by fitting the Škoda Enyaq iV. The brand’s first purely electric SUV will be equipped with the Ventus S1 evo 3 ev tire specially developed for electric cars, just like the group's sister model Volkswagen ID.4.

Depending on the model variant of Škoda’s first electric SUV, sizes 18 to 20 inches are available.

"Hankook Tire and Škoda have already worked closely together in the past. So, we are particularly pleased to continue our long-standing and trusted partnership on the brand's first purely battery-powered SUV," says Moonhwa Hong, Senior Vice President and CTO of OE Development Department at Hankook Tire.

"The Ventus S1 evo 3 ev, perfectly adapted to the needs of electric vehicles, makes an important contribution to sustainable mobility in combination with the new Škoda model."

The Ventus S1 evo 3 ev combines low rolling resistance and high load-bearing capacity. Fitted with the Hankook premium tire, the dynamically styled Škoda Enyaq iV comes with all the requirements to efficiently utilize the battery power and thus achieve the highest possible vehicle range - still one of the most important criteria for electric vehicles, said Hankook Tire in a release.

At the same time, the Hankook Ventus S1 evo 3 ev is matched to the new Škoda electric SUV down to the last detail in order to harmonize confidently with the concept-related higher vehicle weight in all driving situations.

Hankook has equipped the custom-designed EV tire with a double-layer carcass made of high-performance fibers. It offers very high stability and ensures a low tare weight relative to its size.

Another feature of the Ventus S1 evo 3 ev is the special tread compound. It confidently addresses the very high torques unique to electric vehicles while ensuring excellent grip both in wet and dry. The rolling resistance remains low all along.

A special feature of the 20-inch dimension with reduced sidewall height is an additional, steel-based reinforcement in the bead area, which contributes to an even higher sidewall stiffness. In addition to a precise fit of the tire on the rim, this ensures a particularly sporty, direct steering response.

Jeongho Park, Executive Vice President and Director of Global OE Innovation Headquarters at Hankook Tire says, “Hankook continuously invests in research and development and is therefore well prepared for the changes in the mobility industry. This is why many leading vehicle manufacturers are already equipping their electric and hybrid models with Hankook EV tires as a standard.”

Sustainability is a particular concern for the tire manufacturer. Hankook Tire’s expansion of its EV portfolio is also a part of its long-standing commitment to sustainability. In addition, Hankook will be the new exclusive tire supplier and technical partner for the "ABB FIA Formula E World Championship" from the 2022/23 season. In this prestigious series, Hankook will supply particularly sustainable and energy-saving motorsport tires.
