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 tires offers unique grip and Scandinavian peace of mind. We have high-quality winter and summer tires especially developed and tested for use on electric cars.

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

Safer

Safety is key even for electric car tires

A premium tire with first-class grip and handling will make sure you get home regardless of the weather.  Our state-of-the-art tires, 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 tires become even more important especially on slippery and wet surfaces and in case of surprises. Our winter tires are among the best in the industry in terms of grip on ice and snow and our summer tires 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 tire’s rolling resistance: a tire with lower rolling resistance requires less energy to rotate. An electric car tire 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 tire label’s best A category in terms of fuel efficiency.

More comfortable

Comfort and quiet for powerful electric cars

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

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