Hankook to Premiere New Products at the 66th IAA for Commercial Vehicles
Hankook is presenting several world premieres at this year’s IAA for Commercial Vehicles in Hanover. For the first time, the premium tyre maker will showcase a tyre made specifically for coaches: the SmartTouring tyre. With the extension of the modern e-cube Blue series for long-haul trucks, a complete tyre line with maximum fuel efficiency will be available. In addition, the new low-line sizes of the popular e-cube MAX series demonstrate that Hankook has already integrated the current market trend in the low-line segment in its portfolio. In a separate outdoor exhibition area, the company will also be highlighting its OE partnerships with MAN and Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
Premium tyre maker Hankook will be exhibiting at this year’s 66th IAA for Commercial Vehicles from 22nd to 29th September in Hanover. In Hall 14-15, booth A01, the company will be introducing numerous world premieres alongside its current comprehensive portfolio of truck and bus tyres.
Research and tyre development at Hankook continues to focus on economy and efficiency. The company is expanding its ultra-efficient e-cube Blue trailer tyres to include relevant steering and axle profiles, and for the first time, will be presenting a complete solution for all axle positions in long-haul transport, including A-labels for rolling resistance on all the tyres in the series.
As the low-line segment faces increasing requirements, the premium tyre maker is also presenting new sizes for steering and drive axles. The 45 and 50 series from the successful e-cube MAX tyre line have been developed especially for use on mega trucks. This allows fleet owners to exploit the maximum inner loading height of three metres without exceeding the maximum permissible overall height of four metres as permitted by legislation.
Furthermore, Hankook has reacted to the increasing importance of long-distance coach travel all over the world by presenting the new SmartTouring tyre, a series which will be premiered at this year’s IAA.
The Hankook “Smart” concept is used in several different tyre series to meet a wide range of requirements. Therefore, the technology meets all the key criteria of the truck and bus tyre segment: in addition to safety, it stands for high mileage, a particularly anti chip- and cut tyre compound, retreadability and high traction.
