The Hankook test-driving centre at a 126,000-square-meter site is scheduled for completion in the first half of 2021.
Hankook and Hyundai Co-Develop New Testing Facilities
Hankook Tire President and COO Soo II Lee and Hyundai Motor Vice Chairman Euisun Chung signed an agreement on 17th June to construct a driving experience centre at Hankook Tire’s new testing facility in Taean.
“As we co-develop these facilities with Hyundai Motor Group, we seek to strengthen the capabilities and further develop Korea’s driving culture together,” Hankook Tire’s President and COO Soo Il Lee was quoted as saying.
At the new facilities, he added, Hankook will innovate new products, comply with stringent safety and environmental regulations, and meet customers and investors’ expectations for quality and value.
The driving experience centre at a 126,000-square-meter site is scheduled for completion in the first half of 2021. It will be as large as 176 soccer fields combined.
With the longest test roads in Asia, the new tyre-testing facility will enable rigorous testing of Hankook’s most advanced products, such as EV, run-flat, and super car tyres, the company said.
