The iON products will initially be available in three designs at launch, according to Hankook. Sizes are between 18 and 22 in. The Hankook Ventus iON A tire will be available as an all-season version for the North American market. and further specific product designs are in the pipeline.

According to Hankook, the new iON tires meet the everyday requirements for EV tires thanks to an extensive set of technical measures. In particular, Hankook has countered the higher vehicle mass of EVs, caused by the considerable weight of the drive batteries, with a higher load capacity.

According to Hankook, another development goal was to make tires that would operate as quietly as possible. The Hankook Sound absorber, in combination with the specific pattern design integrated into the company’s iON products, should reduce the interior noise significantly.
