Goodyear announce it will supply its Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV tires (in 265/45R21 SUV size) to Audi’s first electric SUV, the e-tron.
As electric vehicles operate with higher torque compared to cars with a combustion engine, tire wear is up to 25% higher but thanks to technically advanced construction, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV is able to address these challenges.
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV is known for its optimized braking and handling performance in all conditions and its Active Braking Technology shortens braking distance by 1.2 meters on both dry and wet roads. Its SUV-Optimized Construction Technology improves handling at higher speeds, improves cornering stiffness and decreases tread wear. These features are combined with a UHP Cool Cushion Layer, a technology that improves handling while reducing rolling resistance.
The tires fitted on the Audi e-tron use Goodyear’s SoundComfort Technology, which effectively reduces the interior car noise by half (up to 4dB). A perfect fit for electric vehicles as tire and road noises are the dominant interior sounds in most EVs.
