Kumho Tire supplies Volkswagen with new tyre for the ID.4

South Korean company Kumho Tire is supplying the Crugen EV HP71 for the initial fitting of Volkswagen’s ID.4 e-SUV. The Volkswagen ID.4 is in the top position of Europe’s e-cars (as of 2022) based on sales figures in 10 European countries, including Germany. Contributing factors to its success include its attractive price and the booming market in the mid-size SUV segment. Four tyre sizes can be fitted to the ID.4: 235/55 R19, 255/50 R19, 235/50 R20, and 255/45 R20. Car tyres and other automotive components require KCs certification to be approved for import and distribution in South Korea.



Kumho’s Crugen EV HP71 is a high-performance tyre for SUVs, which has now been adapted for EVs in its new edition. A special EV compound of the raw materials used, including easily dispersible silica, is said to improve driving and braking characteristics. In addition, the Crugen HP71 EV offers increased driving stability, less abrasion and improved braking power compared to other tyres. Kumho Tires has also incorporated technology in the tyre that reduces noise generation from the tyre grooves.

Kumho Tire is developing Original Equipment (OE) tyres for the next generation of EVs in collaboration with leading global car manufacturers. For example, Kumho tyres are fitted on the Kia EV6. The South Korean EV has been a best-seller since its debut in August last year. So far, the new tyres show superior technology and excellent quality.

Certifications for the Korean market are a complex hurdle and difficult to navigate due to different authorities and certification systems. With over 15 years of experience in the certification business, MPR International GmbH is your best point of contact for competent service when it comes to exporting to Korea. For example, KC Safety is relevant for electronics and household products, which are mostly intended for consumers, as well as products for children and babies.

Feel free to contact us any time if you need assistance or have any questions regarding Korean certifications like KC, KC EMC, KCs, KCs for explosion safety products or KGS factory registration.
