Goodyear Tire is partnering with Borrow, a short-term, fully electric car subscription company in California to test its newest service innovation.

Goodyear is using its unique predictive tire servicing solution for Borrow’s connected fleets to forecast and automatically schedule needed tire maintenance and replacement. Leveraging Goodyear’s expertise in tires, the cloud-based platform predicts and automatically schedules tire servicing via vehicle data and proprietary algorithms.

“Goodyear is focused on the future of mobility with a strong emphasis on fleets and electric vehicles,” said Chris Helsel, Goodyear’s chief technology officer. “This relationship with Borrow continues our testing of digital service solutions for consumer fleets, allowing Goodyear to lead in this space.”

“We’re excited to pioneer this new ownership experience within the electric car revolution,” said Rodrigo de Guzman, Borrow’s founder and CEO. “The world of transportation is evolving quickly and we’re wholeheartedly accepting that challenge in a way that’s meaningful to consumers and glad to be working with Goodyear.”

The Borrow collaboration will allow Goodyear’s Innovation Lab in San Francisco to test the solution while servicing a fleet, representing a new model of emerging mobility — in this case, a short-term leasing model. By collaborating with Goodyear, Borrow aims to efficiently service its fleet to provide a hassle-free experience for its customers.
