Ceat Tyres has launched new tyres specially designed for electric buses. The new Ceat Winenergy X3-R tyres are available in two sizes - 295/80R22.5 and 255/70R22.5 and deliver 30 per cent higher mileage, 30 per cent better rolling resistance and 50 per cent reduction in tyre noise as compared to regular tyres. In the research and development (R&D) process, Ceat Tyres has considered the specific requirements and characteristics of an electric bus. For instance, an EV bus has an eager torque delivery and is equipped with a heavier battery pack. Considering these aspects, the tyres have been designed to offer a smooth, cushioned ride on city roads which are quite often in a state of disrepair.
Arnab Banerjee, COO, CEAT said, "Indian cities can look forward to the further deployment of electric buses which provide for a sustainable, air and noise pollution-free transit for commuters. With the launch of CEAT's WINENERGY X3-R EV tyres we are pleased to be able to offer tyres specifically designed for our EV OEMs, and to help in making urban transport cost-effective, cleaner, and smoother."
The tyre has an all-steel tubeless construction with a robust casing catering to the high torque delivery. It also has EVST providing better stiffness and tyre grip, FaF to dampen noise, and BRIC-T to resist tread buckling. The tyres have a circuit design, a wider contact, and have reinforced sidewalls, providing better traction and reduce tyre damage. Moreover, these EV tyres fit all axle positions.
