Specialized tires that can support the weight of the car, dampen road noise, and extend range are needed for electric cars (EVs). The weight of EVs is typically 10–20% heavier than that of vehicles powered by internal combustion engines (ICEs), hence EV tires are designed to tolerate this weight.
Due to its weight, an EV’s regular tires would deteriorate more quickly. EV-specific tires are designed to resist the increased load, making them more durable, to address this problem Since EVs lack an engine and generate almost no noise when in motion, EV tires also need to reduce road noise.
Specialized tread designs, sound-absorbing foam, and rubber compounds can all help to reduce noise. Additionally, by lowering tire rolling resistance, EV tires must increase range.
Advanced tire silanes for silica compounds from Momentive can enhance EV innovation by lowering tire rolling resistance and increasing vehicle range.
Global EV Silica tires market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The first tires made exclusively for electric cars (EVs) by Hankook Tire have been introduced in the US.The first of Hankook’s comprehensive series of EV tires, which debuted earlier this year are the iON evo AS and iON evo AS SUV.
Hankook’s “EVolution” technology, which focuses on tread wear, noise reduction, and special grip performance for EVs, is used in the construction of the tires.
The tires’ EVolution composition, which is made of high-concentration silica and environmentally acceptable components, is intended to increase tire life by equally dispersing road pressure as well as battery life and mileage by lowering rolling resistance.
The iON range of tires from Hankook comprises all-season tires for Americans as well as winter and summer EV tires for drivers in Europe.
Hankook Tire Gauge Index recently surveyed Americans on their driving habits, and nearly half (46%) of those polled stated they would think about getting an electric car as their next automobile. Demand for customized EV tires is projected to increase as more people transition to electric vehicles.
