JK Tyres now has a new range dedicated to electric vehicles
JK Tyres has developed a complete range of EV-specific smart radial tyres that can be used for buses, passenger cars, trucks and LCVs. The company informed that these tyres have been engineered in a way that will take care of the needs of electric vehicles. These tyres have been designed and developed by engineers from the Raghupati Singhania Centre of Excellence (RPSCOE).
JK Tyres shared that while producing these tyres, especially for electric vehicles, they have focused on technologies that will ensure ultra-low rolling resistance, improved wet and dry traction, higher durability and lower energy consumption. To complement an electric vehicle's lower noise, the tread pattern of these smart radial tyres has been created using advanced FEA simulations for lower noise and better wear characteristics.
