EV Tyres | Electric Vehicle Tyres Fitted Mobile
With the world becoming increasingly greener, the market share for electric vehicles is only increasing. Tyre manufacturers have definitely caught on to this! Several big brand names are now promoting tyres with Electric Drive technology.
The immediate torque of electric vehicles can be pretty tough on tyres, especially when you're looking at a heavier and more powerful model such as a Tesla Model S Plaid. With a higher rolling resistance, standard car tyres aren't suitable for electric vehicles as they can decrease the range, can't handle the instant torque and can reduce the life of the electric motor.
Goodyear have done some testing and they say that "traditional tyres can wear out up to 30% faster on electric vehicles", standard tyres can be fitted to electric vehicles but they will not perform to their highest capability.
From their research Goodyear have released the EfficientGrip Performance with Electric Drive Technology, they claim as well as resulting in improved wear the tyre also offers extended mileage, extended driving range and high load carrying construction.
Michelin have released the Pilot Sport EV Tyre, to read more about the benefits of the PS EV click here.
Another brand who are investing in eTechnology are Continental, they have designed the eContact tyre which offers minimal rolling resistance for higher mileage, better braking performance and low noise emissions.
Bridgestone have developed the Turanza Eco which comes as Original Fitment for the Electric Golf.
We don't doubt there will gradually be more competitors in the market for tyres designed to help Hybrid and Electric vehicles run even more efficiently.
