Hankook is to equip the Rinspeed microSNAP micro vehicle with a tyre from its Flagship-UHP Ventus S1 evo line in size 195/40R17.

The microSNAP is a vehicle system with interchangeable chassis and bodies. Rinspeed says 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 when needed.

“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.”
