From the next season of Formula E, Hankook will be the new and exclusive technical partner and tyre supplier of the series. At an event in The Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Austria, Hankook officially presented the newly developed Hankook iON race tyres to guests and representatives of Formula E, as well as the international media. 

The new tyre has been developed in close cooperation with the racing series and is particularly aimed at meeting the sustainability needs of Formula E and the future of e-mobility, without compromising motorsport performance.

Besides boasting long lasting durability, the Hankook tyres are also recycled after race weekends to maximise sustainability
Nearly 30% of the new tyre, which is specially tailored to the third generation of Formula E race cars, is made of sustainable materials. The Formula E teams currently have access to a single tyre variant that can be used in both dry and wet conditions in a bid to further save resources. 

Furthermore, the long durability of the tyre is another pioneering step. After the respective race weekends, Hankook completely recycles every set of tyres, ensuring the championship is as sustainable as possible. 

The first time motorsport fans will see the Hankook tyres in race conditions will be at the Mexico City E-Prix on 14 January 2023, where 40,000 spectators are expected to fill the grandstands for what will be the first race in the new Gen3 era.
