Hankook expands Kinergy AS ev range
Hankook Tire is adding new 18- and 19-inch sizes to its Kinergy AS ev range. The new dimensions in this expanded line-up, which now covers 16- to 19-inch fitments, will initially be available only in South Korea but will launch in other markets at a later date.
The arrival of products for larger rim diameters comes in response to changing market trends and the diversity of new electric models being released, the tyre maker explains. It first introduced Hankook Kinergy AS ev in September 2018 and describes the range as one “equipped with top-tier technology” to complement the “unique characteristics” of electric vehicles. Hankook adds that the tyre “provides a hyper-low noise environment optimised for EVs, a comfortable ride and supreme driving performance on par with ultra-high-performance tyres.”
