Electric vehicles require specialised tyres for a number of reasons. Compared to internal combustion vehicles, tyres must support more weight and provide more power to the road when accelerating from a stop.
The growth in demand for smart vehicles and the development of autonomous connected automobiles are what are propelling the industry as a whole.
The recent launch of the 5G network and the growing preference for autonomous vehicles over human-driven ones have greatly increased the demand for electric automobiles.
The speedy advancement of current technology associated with smart automobiles is another element influencing a huge populace to select them.
The South Africa EV Tire Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2027.
The new ElectricDrive GT from Goodyear Tire is the first replacement tyre made by the firm, particularly for electric vehicles (EVs) in North America; to begin with, it is meant for the Tesla Model Y.
The ElectricDrive GT tyre from Goodyear is a super-high performance, all-season rubber designed to last a long time and offer the peaceful ride associated with EV driving.
With their enormous battery packs, EVs have increased weight that traditional tyres would not be able to support for an extended length of time. EVs also have instantaneous and constant torque when moving.
Tire manufacturers like Goodyear have created their own tyres, particularly for EVs that can manage the performance offered by these vehicles to address this.
Bridgestone is making its EV tyre development process more effective and sustainable by utilising ground-breaking virtual tyre modelling and simulation technologies, which reduce development time, raw material usage, and CO2 emissions while providing better precision and flexibility.
Bridgestone’s virtual tyre development skills enable it to replicate rolling resistance in actual driving situations, allowing EV tyres to be built to better optimise rolling resistance—increasing battery range—in actual driving scenarios.
Bridgestone is creating high-end tyres that assist give the best performance and adhering to strict EV specifications. Bridgestone’s EV tyres are designed with an optimised contact pressure distribution for improved wet performance and grip, and a customised pattern design for superior wear performance.
Bridgestone’s EV tyres use revolutionary 3D sipes technology to minimise rolling resistance.
