  • The premium all-season tires N’FERA AU7 EV and N’FERA Sport EV from the South Korean tire manufacturer, both supplied for the all-new Hyundai Ioniq 6

SEOUL, South Korea, Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NEXEN TIRE, one of the world’s leading tire manufacturers, today announced the delivery of two of its original equipment, the N’FERA AU7 EV and the N’FERA SPORT EV tires for the new Hyundai Ioniq 6.

With its sleek design and world-class aerodynamic performance, the Ioniq 6 can achieve a range of over 500 kilometers per charge. Additionally, it displays a range of lighting technologies that communicate with vehicles and people, including two-tone mood lamps, flexible and comfortable interior spaces and interactive pixel lights. Additionally, it utilizes a 400V/800V multi-quick charging system and V2L functionality in addition to delivering dynamic driving performance, industry-leading safety and convenience specifications.

NEXEN TIRE’s N’FERA AU7 EV, which is supplied for the new Ioniq 6, is a premium all-season tire that provides excellent stopping power and comfort in various weather and road conditions. By applying an optimized compound, fuel economy and wear performance are significantly improved. In particular, noise is reduced by optimizing the arrangement between pattern blocks and applying multi-sequence using AI big data to improve low-noise design, which is the main requirement of electric vehicles.

The N’FERA Sport EV tire offers good performance on wet and dry roads while guaranteeing the best drainage space. It also improves braking performance on wet roads by increasing stiffness through the use of block deformation prevention technology applied to the side grooves of the tire. High-speed driving stability and handling performance have been significantly improved through the optimization of the pattern design, and grip and braking power have been increased through the use of a specific compound to adhesion.

Both products have been developed to distribute the stiffness ratio of each block in the pattern as evenly as possible and to maximize the contact area with the road surface to prevent wheel spin which can be caused by load and the high torque of the electric motor. vehicle. In order to greatly reduce the resonance sounds emitted while driving, the inside of the tire has also been fully lined with ring-type sound-absorbing materials. These materials perform exceptionally well in terms of sound absorption.
