Ceat has launched a range of tyres specifically designed for four-wheeler EVs. Normally, EVs operate as silent vehicles with high torque, making the tyre noise more evident. It's  new 'EnergyDrive' tyres, the company claims has what it describes as CALM (CEAT Acoustic Lowering Material) technology created using  patented sound absorbing material which reduces noise by filtration and absorption of vibration.

Ceat has incorporated EneryDrive tyres with the new cavity design called EasyFlex; the new design helps to reduce the tyre’s rolling resistance helping the EV with a better driving range. The DuraBlock technology used in the new EnergyDrive provides the new range of these tyres with an improved block stiffness and lower thread flexing. The better stiffness lowers the deformation of the tyres while cornering on a road, it enables the tyres to last longer in the EVs which have higher torque than the conventional vehicles.

Arnab Banerjee, COO, CEAT said, “This marks the first time that a tyre such as EnergyDrive has been launched aimed at four-wheeler EVs in India.  EVs are generally very silent vehicles with high torque, making the tyre noise more evident.  Our EnergyDrive range of tyres with CALM technology, tackle this problem for EV owners in the country. We hope to emerge as the preferred tyre for EV owners.”

Ceat which says it is a market leader in the tyre segment for two-wheeler EVs in India with a 50 percent share of business has already made a foray into the commercial segment with the launch of specially designed tyres for the Tata Ace EV that was launched last April.
