Goodyear reveals prototype EV tyres

Goodyear has used the Geneva motor show to unveil a prototype tyre developed specifically for use with electric vehicles. The EfficientGrip Performance is designed to cater for an ever-growing range of battery-powered vehicles. According to Goodyear, tyres on electric cars can wear up to 30 per cent faster than rubber on internal-combustion vehicles. Why? Instant torque from the electric motors and extra weight from the batteries, apparently.
