Key Facts

Hankook iON evo


Evolutionised to perform more.

Double the Advantage

  • The iON evo pushes the limits of trade-offs to reach optimum performance. The iON evo is specifically tailored for electric vehicles, but also equipped with the best of both worlds.

Aced All Grades

Triple A rated in EU Tyre label

  • The iON evo achieved a hat-trick in the EU Tyre label grade which is extremely exceptional in the tire industry, and especially first for an EV exclusive tire.


Noise Proof Technology

  • Electric motors are almost soundless which eventually causes the driver to hear more noise from tyres. With the Hankook Sound AbsorberTM, the iON evo offers a quiet and pleasant ride in all speed ranges.

Minimised Tread Pattern Noise

Optimised Multi-Pitch Sequencing

  • Tire noise can be drastically reduced by optimising the pitch sequence. The iON evo has optimised the number and size of pitches to listen more to what matters.


Even Tread Wear And Enhanced Mileage

  • Battery weight makes electric vehicles up to 30% heavier than ICE vehicles, which frequently causes uneven wear on tyres. The iON evo is made of a compound specifically made for electric vehicles to evenly spread road pressure and extend tyre life in a healthier condition.

Extended Tread Life

EVolution Compound

  • Composed with high-concentration silica and eco-friendly materials, the EVolution compound provides satisfactory mileage andfurther reduced rolling resistance.

Even Tread Wear

Optimised Ground Pressure Distribution

  • Tires equipped on electric vehicles wear out approximately 20% faster with uneven wear than on ICE vehicles. Designed to spread the ground pressure evenly, the iON evo provides longer usage and less replacement.


Extended Range

  • Hankook understands the concerns of loosing energy while driving Electric Vehicles. By reducing the rolling resistance, the battery lasts longer to drive a longer distance. A few miles can be crucial during an emergency.

Further Reduced Rolling Resistance

Optimised Curing

  • The iON evo achieved the highest grade of LRR performance by applying an advanced compound and Hankook tire’s optimised curing technology which improves all parts of the tire equally.

Enhanced Cornering Stability

EV Contour Technology

  • Tire stiffness is essential to be improved to bear the weight of electric vehicles. Hankook’s EV Contour Technology increases cornering stiffness by 10% to advance electric vehicle handling performance.

Improved Steering at High Speeds

Aramid Hybrid Reinforcement Belt

  • A reinforcement belt mixed with the most advanced fiber, Aramid, is applied on the iON evo to improve steering performance and maintain an optimised shape during high-speed driving.

Excellent Traction

Extended Shoulder Blocks with Optimised Rigidity

  • To prevent slippage caused by the high torque of electric vehicles, the pattern block rigidity is optimised with extended outside shoulder blocks for maximum road contact.


Enhanced Wet Grip

  • By achieving grade A in the EU tyre labelling wet grip item for all available sizes, the iON evo provides guaranteed wet performance without missing noise reduction to maximize driving pleasure.

Wet Performance without missing Noise Reduction

Expanding Lateral Grooves

  • The lateral grooves are designed narrower on the inside to reduce air-pumping noise, and wider on the outside to secure wet performance. This is another double advantage of the iON evo.

Optimised Groove Size

  • To prevent groove resonance while driving, the iON evo has optimised the size of grooves. Expanding the 2 grooves on the inside wider has also improved drainage performance.
