Goodyear Unveils Plans for an EV Future With New Tires at CES

Tope Alake of Bloomberg reports that Goodyear has created an EV-specific tire.

The C3 Take
  • EVs are heavier than their internal combustion engine counterparts, which has put significant strain on tires.
  • Goodyear has unveiled a tire specifically built for electric vehicles which will come with a 60,000 mile warranty (the average EV tire warranty is currently 30,000).
  • The company expects these tires to hit the shelves in May of 2024.

“The company’s new EV product is expected to feature materials including soybean oil used in the tire’s construction as well as sustainably sourced natural rubber as well as high-quality rice husk ash silica, which is a byproduct when rice is processed.”
