More and more manufacturerswhich will only be able to sell new non-thermal vehicles in Europe from 2035, are working in collaboration with tire manufacturers to develop even more durable, ecological and even connected rubbers specially adapted to .
Latest example, Hyundai and intended to develop and produce new generation tires, specially dedicated to the future electric vehicles of the South Korean manufacturer. This research program will focus on the development of eco-responsible, that is to say using more sustainable materials than today, without losing performance. The idea is to achieve 50% of the weight of a new tire in recycled materials.just announced a
These tires should be equipped with a real-time monitoring system in the context of autonomous driving. Michelin, like its American counterpart Goodyear, has already done a lot of work on this technology, which consists of giving the tire agiving the driver a whole host of practical information on his temperature or even his wear and tear in real time.
In order to reduce the overall production of tyres, the idea is also to end up with tires that are all. has already announced that all of its 100% electric vehicles will now be fitted with this type of tyre. These are all-season rubbers, which means that you no longer have to change them depending on the weather conditions, except of course in extreme conditions.
The idea of developing tires specifically for electric cars has already resulted in a first model, the ElectricDrive GT from. All-season tyre, it is particularly suited to the requirements and performance of the models produced by , the first manufacturer to officially adopt them. In particular, it has the particularity of reducing by half the noise caused by the sliding of the tire on the road.
