Ceat, India’s largest tyre manufacturer, has introduced its new range of EV tires that are specifically designed for electric buses. Ceat Winenergy X3-R tyres have been introduced by the company in two sizes. They come in two sizes: 295/80 R22.5 or 255/70R22.5. Ceat states that these EV tyres are specifically designed for urban buses and have been thoroughly tested for ride and handling.
Ceat’s new range EV tyres have a 30% higher mileage, 30% better rolling resistance and a 50% reduction in noise compared to regular tires. This is according to official testing data. These parameters are especially important for electric vehicles because they are more economical to run and less noisy than vehicles that burn fossil fuels.
Ceat Winenergy X3-R features an all-steel tubeless design and a sturdy casing to meet the high torque requirements of electric buses. These tyres offer better mileage and low rolling resistance. They also use other technologies like EVST to improve stiffness and tyre grip, FaF for noise dampening, and BRIC–T to resist tread buckling.
Ceat claims that the new EV tyres it has developed have a unique circuit design and a wider contact. They also feature reinforced sidewalls. These features provide greater traction and decrease tyre wear, making them safer, more cost-effective and smoother. These tyres are also compatible with all axle positions. Ceat also recently introduced its EnergyDrive electric car tyres.
Arnab Banerjee (CEO, CEAT), spoke at the launch and stated that electric buses will be a viable, noise-free, sustainable mode of transportation for commuters. We are happy to launch CEAT’s WINENERGY X3-R EV tyres. This will allow us to provide tyres that are specifically tailored for our EV OEMs and help urban transport become more cost-effective, cleaner and smoother.
