ELECTRIC VEHICLE TIRES
What is the recurring high margin item electric vehicle owners must purchase over the life of their EV. Is it gasoline?...with no combustion engine...NO! Is it oil changes? again, the engine thing...NO!. What is it?... Electric Vehicle T I R E S!
Tires will wear. EV Tires will continue to need to be changed and with a desire to get optimum efficiency out of every charge they will need to be changed sooner than most vehicles. Electric vehicle tires are no longer a concept. EV tires are here today and are becoming an auto industry standard item on electric and hybrid electric vehicles. This domain would be the first choice for an EV electric vehicle tire distributor or manufacturer.
This tire generates electricity through the action of materials in the tire that capture and transform the energy created by heat when it flexes as it rolls during normal driving conditions. The materials used would optimize the tire's electricity generation capabilities as well as its rolling resistance.
There are more companies large and small racing to develop tires for the EV Electrical Vehicle. We will be updating and adding more of these great new innovations in Electric Vehicle tires soon.
With the Conti.eContact, Continental has a new class of tires... tires that have been developed for the special requirements of electric vehicles (known as e-cars) and hybrid cars. In developing such tires, a particular achievement of the development engineers was in considerably lowering the rolling resistance in order to increase the travel range of e-cars.
MICHELIN ENERGY EV
These tires are the result of 4 years of R&D collaboration between Michelin and Renault, which has created a product that improves electric vehicle autonomy. Michelin announced that the ZOE gains up to 6% extra autonomy with the ENERGY E-V, depending on the driving conditions.
