NEXEN’s all-season premium N’FERA AU7 EV and the N’FERA Sport EV tyres, both supplied for the brand-new Hyundai Ioniq 6
NEXEN TYRE Supplies Two New OE tyres for Hyundai Ioniq 6
With its sleek design and world class aerodynamic performance, the Ioniq 6 can achieved a range of more than 500 kilometres per charge. Additionally, it displays a range of lighting technologies that communicate with vehicles and people, including dual-colour ambient mood lamps, flexible and comfortable indoor spaces, and interactive pixel lights. Not only that, but it also uses a 400V/800V multi-fast charging system and V2L functionality in addition to offering dynamic driving performance, cutting-edge safety and convenience specifications.
NEXEN TYRE’s N’FERA AU7 EV, which is supplied for the new Ioniq 6, is a premium four-season tyre that provides excellent braking power and comfort in various climate conditions and road conditions. By applying an optimised compound, fuel economy and wear performance are significantly improved. In particular, noise is reduced by optimising the arrangement between pattern blocks and applying multi-sequence using A.I. big data to enhance the low-noise design, which is the main requirement of electric vehicles.
The N’FERA Sport EV tyre offers good performance on both wet and dry roads while securing the best drainage space. It also improves braking performance on wet roads by increasing rigidity through the use of block deformation prevention technology applied to the tyre’s lateral grooves. High-speed driving stability and handling performance have been greatly enhanced through pattern design optimisation, and grip and braking power have been increased by using grip-specific compounds.
Both products have been developed to distribute the stiffness ratio of each block of the pattern as evenly as possible and to maximise the area of contact with the road surface in order to prevent wheel slip that may be caused by the high load and torque of the electric vehicle. In order to significantly lessen resonance sounds made while driving, the tyre’s interior has also been completely lined with ring-type sound absorption materials. These materials perform exceptionally well in terms of sound absorption.
