Goodyear launches first EV tire for regional fleets

Tire is engineered for lower rolling resistance than comparable competitor tires for improved efficiency to fleets regardless of drivetrain

Akron, Ohio—The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has introduced its RangeMax RSDEV, Goodyear’s first electric vehicle-ready tire compatible with EV and gas- or diesel-powered regional work vehicles.

The RangeMax RSDEV is Goodyear’s best regional drive tire for energy efficiency. Equipped to handle the higher load capacities of EVs, RangeMax RSDEV was engineered to deliver lower rolling resistance than comparable competitor tires, according to testing, for improved efficiency to fleets regardless of drivetrain.

“The new RangeMax RSDEV strives to live up to its name and deliver the superior range and confidence that comes with ultra-low rolling resistance,” said Tom Lippello, senior director, Commercial Marketing, Goodyear North America. “With the continued growth we’re observing in the regional EV segment, changing powertrains and fleets’ cost-savings and sustainability priorities, Goodyear recognized an opportunity to provide fleets and original equipment manufacturers with a tire designed for the unique needs of these vehicles.”

Available now in size 295/75R22.5, additional features and benefits of RangeMax RSDEV include:

  • Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake and Mud and Snow designations, key performance assurances in challenging winter driving conditions.
  • Premium casing construction, providing toughness and durability.
  • Enhanced tread pattern designed for high torque applications and an optimized footprint shape for even treadwear.
