Micheldever Fleet Solutions (MFS) has published a new electric vehicle tyre guide to help fleet managers boost their expertise.
MFS – the fleet tyre division of tyre wholesaler Micheldever Tyre Services – says the different tyre requirements for EV vehicles demands a more in-depth tyre knowledge that for traditional petrol or diesel vehicles.
Martin Towers, sales director at MFS, said: “As the recent SMMT figures show, the EV market is surging and will continue that way throughout the year.
“For those businesses in 2022 looking to make the transition to a zero emission fleet, they need to not only ensure they secure the right vehicles but have the right tyres fitted on them.
“There is a lot for fleet managers to consider and fitting the wrong type of tyre can result in a loss of range, extra noise, accelerated wear and compromise the safety of the vehicle.
“It is therefore really important that fleet managers supercharge their EV tyre knowledge and get up to speed on the key differences between EV tyres and those fitted to conventional vehicles.”
The guide, called Supercharging your Fleet, can be downloaded by clicking here and provides an overview of the market, guidance on the challenges posed by EV vehicles and advice on fitting EV tyres to a company’s fleet.
It includes guidance on the best tyres to fit to different types of EVs, safety advice, wear rates and tyre replacement cycles.
