Kumho Introduces Two New EV Tires: Quiet Performance and Extended Mileage for EV Owners

Majesty 9 Solus TA91 EV and Crugen HP71 EV added to Kumho Tire’s expanding EV all-season tire offerings.
  • Kumho Tire U.S.A. introduces two new EV tires, the Majesty 9 Solus TA91 EV and Crugen HP71 EV, featuring K-Silent technology for reduced cabin noise and improved comfort.
  • The Majesty 9 Solus TA91 EV and Crugen HP71 EV tires improve driving range per charge with up to 19% and 24% reductions in rolling resistance, respectively, compared to previous models.
  • Both tires come with a 50,000-mile treadwear warranty, reflecting Kumho Tire’s commitment to quality. They are compatible with various EV models and are trusted fitments for manufacturers like Kia and Hyundai.

As the electric vehicle (EV) market continues to surge, Kumho Tire introduces two additions to its EV tire lineup: the Majesty 9 Solus TA91 EV and Crugen HP71 EV all weather tire for electric CUVs and SUVs. With over six decades of tire expertise, these new tire options are equipped with K-Silent technology, promising reduced cabin noise and improved driving comfort for EV owners.

As the automotive industry transitions towards sustainable mobility, Kumho Tire doubles down on its commitment to improve the driving experience for electric vehicles by creating tires specifically designed to meet their needs.

Shawn Denlein, President of Sales and Marketing at Kumho Tire U.S.A., said, “Kumho Tire is at the forefront of EV tire technology. Innovation never stops at Kumho Tire, as we continue to evolve our EV tire offerings while offering consumers durable and affordable options for the unique demands of today’s various EV models.”

EV tires, designed specifically to meet the demands of electric vehicles, must navigate challenges ranging from load distribution to treadwear caused by high torque motors and heavy batteries. Kumho Tire’s K-Silent technology addresses these challenges with sound-absorbing foam material integrated into the tire structure and a specialized tread pattern engineered to dissipate noise effectively.

The Majesty 9 Solus TA91 EV and Crugen HP71 EV all weather tires not only deliver superior noise reduction but also improve driving range per charge. The Majesty 9 Solus TA91 EV features up to a 19% reduction in rolling resistance, while the HP71 EV achieves up to a 24% reduction compared to previous generations, optimizing energy efficiency and extending mileage on each charge.

In addition to advanced technology for noise reduction and energy efficiency, Kumho Tire’s EV tire lineup highlights durability and performance. These tires are engineered to reinforce structural rigidity throughout, improving vehicle stability and ensuring even wear for prolonged lifespan.

Kumho Tire’s commitment to quality extends beyond performance to customer satisfaction, with both the Majesty Solus TA91 EV and Crugen HP71 EV tires featuring an impressive 50,000-mile treadwear warranty, much like Yokohama Tire’s ADVAN Sport EV A/S EV tire, which offers a 55,000-mile treadwear warranty.

The Majesty Solus TA91 EV is available in sizes ranging from 18 to 21 inches, catering to a wide range of EV coupes, sedans, and crossover utility vehicles (CUVs). On the other hand, the Crugen HP71 EV is offered in sizes ranging from 19 to 22 inches, specifically tailored for electric CUVs and SUVs.

With over ten premium Original Equipment (OE)-trusted fitments and compatibility with multiple EV models, including those from Kia and Hyundai, Kumho Tire’s EV tire lineup continues to gain momentum globally. Currently, Kumho Tire offers EV tires that work with five different electric vehicle models in North America alone. Plus, there are six more options for original equipment fitments worldwide.
