Pirelli tires have been chosen by one in three electric cars participating at this year’s Munich IAA Mobility Show. Pirelli P Zero, Cinturato, and Scorpion Tires are featured on the latest ecological cars and concepts.
Completing the look of the latest car models
P Zero tires with Elect markings are Ultra High Performance (UHP) tires that combines Pirelli’s experience in motorsport with Elect; technology, chosen to equip cars such as the Porsche Taycan, Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, Polestar 1, BMW iX and the new Mercedes-Benz EQE, at the show in Munich. The P Zero Elect tires are also fitted on the concept car Audi Grandsphere Concept and Mercedes-Benz Concept EQG; as well as the new Mercedes-Benz EQB and Ford Mustang Mach-E 4X.
The models from the Scorpion family – tires that are designed for SUVs and crossovers – are also showcased on other new releases in Munich, such as the Volkswagen ID.4 GTX and ID.5 GTX, the Volvo XC90 plug-in Hybrid and the Jaguar EV400 AWD, as well as the Mercedes-Benz EQCc 400 4matic AMG Line.
Elect: More range, quiet, and grip
Pirelli Elect tires are characterized by a package of specific technologies for electric and plug-in hybrid cars: low rolling resistance to increase range, decreased road noise to improve comfort, immediate grip to deal with instant torque, and the right structure to support the weight of a battery-powered vehicle. These have been developed by Pirelli together with the world’s leading carmakers to meet the specialized technical demands of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles according to Pirelli’s ‘perfect fit’ philosophy, with a specific compound, structure and tread pattern design for each car.
