Goodyear introduces its first EV tire for regional fleets

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has introduced RangeMax RSD EV—the company’s first EV-ready tire compatible with EVs and gas or diesel-powered regional work vehicles.

The company says the RangeMax RSD EV is its best regional drive tire for energy efficiency. It’s equipped to handle the higher load capacities of EVs and was engineered to deliver lower rolling resistance than comparable competitor tires according to ISO/FDIS 28580 measuring standards.

RangeMax RSD EV is currently available in 295/75R22.5 size. It boasts an enhanced tread pattern designed for high-torque applications and an optimized footprint shape for even tread wear.

“The new RangeMax RSD EV strives to live up to its name and deliver the range and confidence that comes with ultra-low rolling resistance,” said Tom Lippello, Senior Director of Commercial Marketing at Goodyear North America. “With the continued growth we’re observing in the regional EV segment, changing powertrains and fleets’ cost savings and sustainability priorities, Goodyear recognized an opportunity to provide fleets and OEMs with a tire designed for the unique needs of these vehicles.”
