Goodyear introduces ElectricDrive 2 for EVs

Goodyear Tire & Rubber has unveiled the latest tire in its ElectricDrive family.

The Goodyear ElectricDrive 2, an all-season EV tire, is designed to maximize EV performance–it features improved rolling resistance and long tread life, according to the company. It has an aerodynamic sidewall and a compound lower aerodynamic drag.

The tire features SoundComfort technology, a built-in sound barrier that’s designed to reduce interior vehicle noise, and an asymmetric tread pattern for wet or dry road conditions. Available from May 2024 in the US, this all-season tire will fit the Tesla Models Y, 3 and S, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Chevy Bolt, Audi Q4 e-tron and others. It comes in 17 sizes.

“We know EV drivers prioritize performance and a more sustainable tire. The ElectricDrive 2 was designed with at least 50% sustainable materials, a focus on providing greater traction and maintaining a quiet ride,” said David Reese, Product Development VP at Goodyear Americas.
