Fleet news logo

Goodyear has unveiled the Intelligrip Urban concept tyre designed for autonomous electric ride-sharing vehicles.

Goodyear’s president for Europe, Middle East and Africa Jean-Claude Kihn said: “With a focus on vehicles for future urban areas, the IntelliGrip Urban concept tyre’s technical features aim to maximise uptime and energy efficiency.

“This is crucial for ‘mobility as a service’ providers to offer improved mobility to their customers.”

The Goodyear IntelliGrip Urban, with sensor-in-tyre technology, is designed to support autonomous vehicle control systems and enhance passenger safety. By gathering critical data and sending it directly to the vehicle’s computer system, it enables the car to optimise speed, braking, handling and stability.

Key features include:

  •   Sensor-in-tyre technology: helps autonomous cars to better read road conditions, supporting and enhancing passenger safety.
  •   Proactive maintenance: allows fleet operators to precisely identify and resolve tyre-related and potential safety issues before they happen.
  •   Tall and narrow shape: reduces the rolling resistance of the tyre in order to increase the energy efficiency and range of the electrical vehicle fleet in an urban environment.
