With more rubber on the road, the tire can better cope with high levels of torque while maintaining Non-availability of charging infra and lithium battery tech is hampering promotion of EVs : Govt. Exicom installs AC & DC electric vehicle Goodyear introduces new tire technology designed

Goodyear claims to have a solution with a new tire aimed at the electric vehicle market. With more rubber on the road, the tire can better cope with high levels of torque while maintaining The tread design also prevents sound waves from entering its grooves, reducing interior and exterior tire noise.

Goodyear is designing a new tire for electric cars. But not just an effort at even lower rolling resistance, this one is designed to handle the massive torque that electric cars provide. They're also showing off a concept tire that gathers moss and makes the air cleaner.



The new Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance with Electric Drive Technology doesn't exactly have a catchy name, but it has an interesting purpose. It's one of the first tires designed specifically to deal with the needs of powerful plug-in hybrid and electric cars.

2018 Acura TLX A-Spec First Test Review: Actually Sort of Sporty

  2018 Acura TLX A-Spec First Test Review: Actually Sort of Sporty There's more to this TLX than a new grille but can Acura differentiate itself from the competition?Acura's solution? The A-Spec package. It didn't give the TL any additional power, but it did include an aero kit, bigger wheels, stickier tires, and a suspension tuned by one of the engineers responsible for the first-generation NSX. It practically eliminated both torque steer and understeer, turning the front-wheel drive TL into a legitimate sport sedan.

Goodyear has introduced new tire developments at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. To address the challenges presented by EVs (which include powerful With more rubber on the road, the tire can better cope with high levels of torque while maintaining high performance in wet conditions.

Goodyear 's RL-5K is ideal for high - torque use in hard rock quarry service. Cutaway of Goodyear 's tire IQ mounting ring. The RT-4A, with its aggressive, extra-deep-tread design , is Goodyear 's newest radial haulage tire .

The company found through testing that EVs wear out traditional tires up to 30 percent faster than conventional vehicles. It's a combination of the instant torque and the extra weight from lugging batteries around.

“The combination of increasing regulations to reduce emissions, the desire to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, and rapid gains in battery technology is creating an ideal environment for electric vehicles,” said Chris Delaney, President of Goodyear Europe, Middle East and Africa. “We are working with automakers to introduce our Electric Drive Technology next year designed to address the unique performance requirements of this growing vehicle segment.”

Automakers are looking for more durability from the tires on electrics. They're also looking to lower rolling resistance even further, in order to extend ranges and meet emissions requirements. Quieter tires are needed as well, with the nearly silent electric motors giving more prominence to other forms of noise.

2018 Ford F-150: Minor Tweaks to the Industry Leader

  2018 Ford F-150: Minor Tweaks to the Industry Leader Ford’s crown jewel undergoes a slight refresh for 2018 and continues its success as the best-selling vehicle in Canada. It sure looks like that gamble to move toward a new aluminum-based construction for this generation has paid off. With significant weight savings in the bank, Ford was able to offer …Even though this happened for the 2015 model year, I’ll probably be talking about it in every F-150 review for the next few years because it’s such a great story. The F-150 remains the absolute benchmark for pickup trucks. It’s the measuring stick by which all other brands use to gauge themselves and rightly so.

Tires . Electric Cars. EVs . Goodyear claims that the new tire can combat these challenges. The new tread design uses thinner channels, so a bigger contact patch touches the road surface, which means better grip for all that torque .

Goodyear testing reveals that traditional tires can wear out up to 30% faster on electric vehicles due to the powerful, instant torque from electric motors and the additional With more rubber on the road, the tire can better cope with high levels of torque while maintaining high performance in wet conditions.

So the new EfficientGrip Performance prototype with Electric Drive Technology uses a new tread design to increase durability. A network of more but thinner sipes put more rubber on the road and allow the tires to cope with the torque. The small grooves maintain traction in wet conditions. The design also helps reduce transmitted noise.

The tire's shape is optimised to handle the extra weight of electric vehicles while maintaining an optimal tread footprint. The tread compound is a new design tuned for ultra-low rolling resistance. It delivers more range but can still handle the torque. The sidewalls have been redesigned to reduce aerodynamic drag and rotating mass.

Goodyear also showed off a concept tire. One that cleans the air and has internet connectivity. The Oxygene tire is a long way from seeing the road, if ever, but it has some interesting ideas. The Oxygene tire absorbs CO2 from the air and moisture from the road. It uses them to feed moss that grows in the sidewall. Goodyear said that in a city the size of Paris, with 2.5 million vehicles, it could generate 3,000 tons of oxygen and absorb 4,000 tons of CO2 per year.

Winter Tire Procurement Shouldn’t Be So Hard

  Winter Tire Procurement Shouldn’t Be So Hard Not all OEMs make it easy to source the right rubber for the snowA close friend of mine ordered a new 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S last year. After some delays, the car finally landed at his dealer in the middle of October. I had already begun assisting him in the winter wheel and tire hunt. Well, pulling my hair out is more accurate. Tire Rack had zero info and Mercedes wasn't supplying their dealers with one bit a data. The local Mercedes dealer called their approved factory tire supplier—Dealer Tire of Cleveland, Ohio—but they too had nothing.

The new technology has been designed to tackle the performance necessities of the increasing EV segment. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company Price and Consensus. Underdeveloped recharging infrastructure in most of the countries has initiated many customers to demand EVs with high ranges.

The tire is non-pneumatic, meaning that it's not filled with pressurized air. Instead, it uses a lightweight, shock absorbing construction that is 3D printed from recycled tires. It can use energy harvested from photosynthesis to power onboard sensors including a light strip. It can also use a visible light communications system to connect to vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure data links, becoming part of the Internet of Things.

The EfficientGrip tire is expected to arrive on vehicles in Europe next year. Don't expect to see the Oxygene at your local tire store anytime soon.
