Nokian Hakka Green – naturally safe
The new Nokian Hakka Green summer tyre uniquely combines the needs of drivers on northern roads. The environmentally friendly novelty, featuring superior grip and driving response, reliably deals with all summer conditions: the rough and scorching hot asphalt, roads wet after intense rain and the steadily cooling weather in late autumn. The extremely low rolling resistance means that Hakka Green rolls lightly, saving both fuel and the environment.
The Nokian Hakka Green has a rolling resistance which is 15 percent lower than that of the Nokian Hakka H, its test-winning predecessor, which means a nearly 3 percent decrease in fuel consumption.
Compared to average summer tyres, the Hakka Green saves 5–8 percent in fuel, while also generating less exhaust emissions.
The fuel savings of an average Nordic driver using lightly rolling Hakka Green tyres would amount to nearly one tank (41 litres) a year. The reduction in CO2 emissions from driving would be 106 kg. If all Finnish motorists used Nokian Hakka Green tyres, annual fuel savings would be over 114 million litres, which corresponds to 2,077 trailer loads. Carbon dioxide emissions would decrease by some 296,000 tonnes. (*
Pine oil stimulates easy rolling
No compromises were made in the persistent development of the driving properties of the new tyre. The development was based on the Nokian Hakka H, a multiple test winner that has earned praise, especially for its low rolling resistance and dependable grip. The superior handling and grip properties were further fine-tuned on test tracks in the Nordic countries, Germany and Spain.More kilometres, quieter driving
The Nokian Hakka novelty features a lower rolling resistance and excellent wear resistance compared to its predecessor, thanks to numerous technical innovations. The semi-round cavities on the sides of the longitudinal ribs, resembling a golf ball pattern, cool the tyre. This new Silent Groove Design reduces drag and ensures better mileage thanks to lower fuel consumption.
The side design of the longitudinal ribs serves to control both inside noise and drive-by noise. The cavities that control air flow cut off the noise stimuli generated by the edges of the longitudinal grooves and prevent any unpleasant, whistling noise. The stable body structure and carefully selected materials further dampen blows and vibration, contributing to the pleasantly silent driving with the Nokian Hakka Green.roplet symbol draws attention to the risk of aquaplaning
Tyres that are in good condition increase safety by significantly reducing the possibility of aquaplaning. In addition to the DSI (Driving Safety Indicator) patented by Nokian Tyres, the tyres also feature an aquaplaning indicator. Its droplet symbol disappears when less than four millimetres of the tread are left, reminding the driver of an increased risk of aquaplaning.For small and medium-sized family cars
The carefully tested Nokian Hakka Green, offering high wear resistance, ensures that drivers can travel safely and comfortably in all road and weather conditions. Each tyre conveys the same pioneering skills and environmental respect as the Hakkapeliitta winter tyres, which have scored more victories in tests than any other tyres worldwide.
True to the strong traditions of its family, the Hakka Green is the first product to be launched in the new Hakka summer tyre range by Nokian Tyres.
Since 1st November, 2012 all tyres made after 1st July, 2012 must show the European Tyre Label.
The European Union has developed this new provision to promote economic and ecological efficiency and ensure road safety.
Disadvantages The Tyre Label can provide an overview and give the customer more transparency, but it only covers three criteria. For an extensive evaluation of a tyre, however, far more performance characteristics are relevant. Especially in the search for suitable winter tyres the test results from different test institutions such as the ADAC are much more stringent.
We'd like to point out that it is the manufacturer that labels the tyre and provides us with this information. If you do not find the label values, either the manufacturer did not inform us of the label, or the product was manufactured before July, 2012. Before that date, tyres had not yet been required to carry a label, so in some cases it is possible to purchase a tyre without a Tyre Label.
The tyres are classified in terms of three performance characteristics:
• Fuel Efficiency (letters A to G)
• Wet Grip (letters A to G)
• External Noise
Finally, it is the driver that determines the fuel consumption. In order to reduce this over the long-term, by being careful during acceleration drivers can become more fuel-efficient and environmentally conscious.
Regularly checking tyre pressure helps to improve rolling resistance, reduces energy loss, and supports optimum adhesion in wet conditions. To reduce the risk of accidents and ensure your and the safety of other road users, always keep a reasonable distance.

The classification in terms of fuel efficiency is divided into seven classes, from the A-class (the highest) to G-class (the
lowest). A tyre in the A-class consumes 0.1 litres less at 100km than a tyre in the B-class. An essential component for fuel
efficiency is the rolling resistance or rolling friction.
Rolling resistance is the force that opposes motion. It is formed, for example, when a wheel is rolling. Rolling resistance depends not only on the geometry but also on the properties of the material.
Average Average value is between C-E. Class D is not used.
It shows how efficient the vehicle can brake on wet roads. Wet grip is an important feature especially with summer tyres.
Class A has the highest safety and the shortest braking distances. Class F has low security and the longest braking distance.
The wet grip classes are based on test driving on wet roads with a speed of approximately 80 km/h. The difference between the braking distance of the tyres is 3-5 feet per grade. E.g., the difference in braking distance between Class A and Class F are up to 18 metres.
Average The average value of the tyres is between class B-E. Class D and G is not used.
The symbol indicates the external rolling noise in decibels and as a 3 class sound wave symbol to clarify whether the tire can
keep the recommended level. External rolling noise does not correspond to tyre noise inside the compartment.
A continuous sound level above 80 decibel can cause health problems.
Three sound waves symbolize the worst results. These are the tyres that exceed the maximum limit of approval. A symbol of 2 sound waves have noise level that corresponds with the approved sound level. Tyres that are marked with 1 sound wave are over three decibel quieter than the approval.
