One-third of electric car failures are due to tires?

A new study shows that the biggest worry in driving an electric car isn’t running out of battery, but tires and wheels.

More than a third of electric vehicle failures are due to tires and wheels, according to breakdown company LV Britannia Rescue, compared with about one in 10 due to insufficient power.

And only 16 percent of petrol and diesel cars had questions about tires and wheels. That’s because EVs are heavier, and many EVs don’t come with a spare wheel.

The importance of developing special tires for electric vehicles has gradually become prominent. The tire market for electric vehicles is vast, and many tire manufacturers have also invested in the research and development of electric vehicle tires.

Continental’s new HL (heavy-duty) tires are specifically designed for electric vehicles. The tire has a load capacity of 825kg and a load index of 101, which is equivalent to a 10% increase over the XL standard of 750kg.
