Another piece of electric mobility: the winter tire dedicated to zero-emission cars is added to the mosaic. A few days after the entry into force of the obligation of M + S tires on many roads, from North to South, Pirelli presents the new tires made with Elect technology on the Winter Sottozero 3, Scorpion Winter and P Zero Winter lines.

Also for electric and hybrid cars winter tires are recommended if you travel many kilometers during the winter and if you are looking for the best performance even in the coldest season. With the advance of autumn and the gradual descent of temperatures, down to below the threshold of 7C, summer tires are no longer able to express their characteristics at their best. Security reasons require you to switch to winter. Thanks to their softer compound, performing even when the temperature goes below zero, they guarantee high road holding, excellent traction – particularly important performance for electric vehicles – on every surface, even with low grip. stopping space. Winter tires are marked with the M + S symbol, often accompanied by the 3PMSF marking (the symbol of a snowflake inserted into a stylized mountain with three peaks).

Low rolling resistance to increase autonomy, low tire rolling noise to ensure comfort, immediate grip for the stresses of the transmission at the start and a structure suitable for supporting the weight of the battery-powered vehicle. These are the characteristics of Pirelli Elect, developed in collaboration with the main car manufacturers to meet the specific technological requirements of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. The Elect brand, presented for the first time at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, is offered as original equipment for many electrified models. Sustainability and performance: the combination is confirmed with the P Zero Elect for the Porsche Taycan. Compound, structure and tread pattern have been studied for the sports car.
