The performance figures for the recently launched electric cars have emphasized that the switch to electricity not only eliminates emissions but also raises the bar when it comes to acceleration and instant performance.
The recent launches of super electric sedans from leading manufacturers such as Audi and Porsche have expanded the list of electric cars that can reach 100 km/h faster than many traditional supercars. For Goodyear, this has presented many exciting new challenges in tire design and development.
Goodyear's challenge is to create tires that can handle the enormous torque of electric vehicles that are strong enough to save the lives of ordinary supercars while providing the comfort, durability and low rolling resistance that are crucial at this end of the market for premium luxury vehicles.
With original equipment for exciting electric super sedans such as the Audi e-tron GT, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 has already marked itself as a tire that orients itself towards electric vehicles. Four-door sedans such as the RS model of the Audi e-tron GT provide more than 600 hp, moving from 0-100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds. The performance qualities of these cars are obvious and they, therefore, require a tire that can match them.
