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[1] 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.
