The new Goodyear ElectricDrive comes with a limited warranty, V speed rating and is available in sizes 215/50R17 95V XL and 215/55R17 94V SL.

This all-season tire is built for commuter touring sedans and CUVs, making it a fit for vehicles like the Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Bolt and Volt and the Kia Niro EV.

“Goodyear remains focused on offering innovative products and technologies for the EV segment and providing drivers with the quality, performance and enhanced treadwear they expect from our brands,” said Michiel Kramer, director, Consumer Product Marketing.

Goodyear’s ElectricDrive tires are engineered with a load index to account for the heavier load capacity of EVs and features SoundComfort Technology designed to help reduce the level of interior vehicle noise.

The new EV tire also features a specialized tread compound for all-season traction and long-lasting tread life, while an asymmetric tread pattern provides confident handling for wet or dry road conditions.

Additionally, Goodyear launched two new sizes for its ElectricDrive GT tire that was originally introduced in December 2021.

“The addition of the new ElectricDrive GT sizes allow us to meet the unique needs of more electric vehicle drivers with premium, performance Goodyear products,” said Kramer.

The ElectricDrive GT comes with a limited warranty, W speed rating and is available in sizes 255/45R19 104W XL, 235/45R18 98W XL and 235/40R19 96W XL.
