Hankook Tire teams up with Rinspeed’s micro vehicle project

Hankook Tire will supply tyres for Rinspeed’s new microSNAP, a micro vehicle system with interchangeable chassis and bodies, which is currently presented on Geneva International Motor Show 2019.  Hankook will be supplying the micro vehicle with its premium Ventus line tyres as official tyre partner.

The new micro vehicle system will be equipped with Hankook’s Flagship-UHP Ventus S1 evo line in the size 195/40R17.

The new micro vehicle system combines chassis and bodies only temporarily and so allows for a more flexible and sustainable usage which is supported by Hankook’s high performance tyre with balanced environmental properties.

Rinspeed’s new microSNAP is a micro vehicle system with interchangeable chassis and bodies. The unit is envisioned to deliver both goods and passengers autonomously and quickly to their destination. The chassis and the body are mated only for their current purpose and can be separated easily when needed. The electric vehicle is full of technical and visual treats by a network of renowned companies. As one of them, Hankook is officially equipping the microSNAP with a tyre from its premium Ventus S1 evo line.

“We are very happy about the new partnership with Hankook. As a company with dynamic and futuristic ideas, like the currently presented tyres of the research and development project ‘Design Innovation’, they strive to develop ideas which go beyond the limits of today’s tyre and mobility developments and complement our “microSNAP” project.“, says Frank M. Rinderknecht, CEO of Rinspeed.

“Being the official partner on this visionary micro vehicle proves Hankook’s technological know-how on shaping the future of mobility”, says Han-Jun Kim, President of Hankook Tire Europe. “With our own design challenge, we are constantly working on developing creative and efficient solutions for the mobility of the future.”
