Tires for electric cars

Nokian Tyres offers high-performance, high-quality tires for electric and hybrid vehicles

Safe, sustainable comfort

Drivers of electric and hybrid vehicles crave an enjoyable, environmentally responsible driving experience. They want a tire that delivers many years of safe and comfortable journeys. Nokian Tyres shares their core values of safety and sustainability, and we’ve built our premium tires to deliver peace of mind in all conditions. Best of all, we sustainably craft innovative year-round driving solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of electric vehicles.

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

Safe solutions are vital for electric vehicles

Safety is key even for electric car tires

A premium tire with first-class grip and handling will help you get home safely, regardless of the weather. Our state-of-the-art tires, tested under demanding conditions, provide sturdy handling on snow and ice and in pouring rain. Electric and hybrid vehicles have battery packs that typically make them heavier and slower to stop than cars with combustion engines. Our premium tires are designed to provide extra grip to compensate for the added weight and provide peace of mind on slippery and wet roads.

More eco-friendly

Low rolling resistance increases the electric car's range

Nokian Tyres helps you drive further with lower environmental impact. We’ve made strides to minimize our tires’ rolling resistance, decreasing the amount of energy needed for each journey. Our products will take your electric or hybrid vehicle further with a single charge while leaving a lighter environmental footprint.

Peace and comfort for powerful electric vehicles

Comfort and quiet for powerful electric cars

A high-quality tire brings out the best in powerful electric vehicles. Our premium tires are designed to retain their finely tuned characteristics throughout their life cycles. Our tires offer serene, safe, comfortable driving in every season. We offer studded and non-studded winter tires, so electric vehicle drivers can pick the right option for their locales and preferences. Our all-weather and all-season tires provide the same premium levels of stability and comfort.

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

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