New tire promises to improve efficiency by up to 3%
If we could compare these new tires with the tires currently offered on the Toyota Prius, we would probably see very similar fuel economy performance, since both are low rolling resistance tires. The lifetime of the current Prius tire is limited to approximately 30,000 miles, one aspect the new Hankook tire seems to want to address. The Hankook tire promises to have equal levels of durability compared to existing tires, through the incorporation of a new rubber compound and tire structure design.
