Tyres for electric cars

High-performance, high-quality tyres also for electric cars and hybrids

Safer, more eco-friendly and more comfortable

The owners of electric cars or hybrids value enjoyable and eco-friendly driving, carefree use and low operating costs. The right tyre choice can improve the car's safety and driving comfort and increase its operating range even further. Our comprehensive product range of over 400 tyres offers unique grip and Scandinavian peace of mind. We have high-quality winter and summer tyres especially developed and tested for use on electric cars.

What should you take into account when choosing tyres for your electric car or hybrid?

Safer

Safety is key even for electric car tyres

A premium tyre with first-class grip and handling will make sure you get home regardless of the weather.  Our state-of-the-art tyres, tested under demanding conditions, will also help electric cars move safely on snow and ice and in pouring rain.

Electric cars and hybrids have battery packs that commonly make them heavier than cars with combustion engines. A heavier car will take longer to stop, which means that high-quality tyres become even more important especially on slippery and wet surfaces and in case of surprises. Our winter tyres are among the best in the industry in terms of grip on ice and snow and our summer tyres have excellent wet grip.

More eco-friendly

Low rolling resistance increases the electric car's range

Further with a lower environmental impact. Pay special attention to the tyre’s rolling resistance: a tyre with lower rolling resistance requires less energy to rotate. An electric car tyre with low rolling resistance will take you further with a single charge and have a lower environmental impact. Our extensive selection has a large number of products that have achieved the EU tyre label’s best A category in terms of fuel efficiency.

More comfortable

Comfort and quiet for powerful electric cars

A high-quality tyre brings out the best in powerful electric cars. Our premium tyres have been designed to retain their finely tuned characteristics throughout their life cycle.  High quality means minimal visits to the service shop.

Our tyres offer quiet safety and comfortable driving in every season. Many owners of electric cars or hybrids choose non-studded winter tyres for their comfort, but for those who value stud grip, our selection also has several pleasantly silent studded tyre models. Our summer tyres also offer quiet driving comfort.

Choose tyres according to the driving conditions - also for electric vehicles

Driving with summer tyres on ice and snow is dangerous. However, there are differences in winter tyres too. We fitted a Tesla with summer tyres, winter tyres for Central European winter and winter tyres designed for Northern European conditions and did a braking test on ice.
