Continental supplies OE tires for the new Kia EV6

Kia relies on Continental tires specifically designed to meet the needs of electric vehicles for its new all-electric Kia EV6, according to Continental Tires. As a result, the tire maker offers two types of tires to Kia factories: PremiumContact 6 and CrossContact RX. In many countries, Kia EV6 owners can also choose from a wide range of premium, test-winning Continental replacement tires for summer, winter and all-season, for example, the AllSeasonContact.

Specially designed for a safe and comfortable ride, PremiumContact 6 tires provide low rolling resistance, helping the Kia EV6 achieve greater range. The special tread compound used in PremiumContact 6 tires has been optimized for safety and braking performance on wet roads, and the tire design ensures maximum cornering stability and lateral force transfer. The version of PremiumContact 6 used in the Kia EV6 has the highest wet grip rating (Label A) rated under the European Union’s tire labeling system, according to Continental Tires.

With the CrossContact RX, Continental Tires says it has developed a crossover performance tire that has excellent braking and handling characteristics – also in rough terrain. The tire’s special tread pattern provides additional protection against rock and stone damage, while its sidewalls are engineered for highly responsive and precise steering.

According to Continental Tires, the PremiumContact 6 and CrossContact RX versions selected for use in the Kia EV6 are equipped with ContiSilent technology. For a quieter driving experience, ContiSilent reduces the acoustic components of rolling noise that are seen as particularly annoying in the car interior by up to nine decibels. ContiSilent is compatible with all commercially available rims and in no way compromises performance, mileage, durability or top speed. Electric vehicles like the EV6 generate much less noise than their combustion engine counterparts.

Continental Tires said that when winter approaches, Kia EV6 owners can fit their vehicles with Continental’s WinterContact TS 850 P. Thanks to the tire’s many blocks and longitudinal tubes, EV6 drivers can benefit from improved traction and shorter braking distances on ice.

According to Continental Tires, the AllSeasonContact is an all-season tire suitable for the EV6. Thanks to the tire’s high-silica compound and various resins, it provides particularly high performance in both wet and winter conditions. AllSeasonContact provides not only good grip on cold, wet or snowy roads, but also a high degree of summer driving safety as well as low rolling resistance.
