Get good environmental tyres for your electric car

If you buy an electric car or a hybrid, you might do it due to environmental reasons. You want to reduce the use of non-renewable energy and use electricity from renewable sources. Electric cars tend to be heavier than petrol-powered cars due to the heavy battery packs needed to supply the vehicle with enough electricity to get longer distances on each charge. One of the drawbacks of electric cars is that it takes longer to charge them than fueling up a car. This limits your daily distance.

Due to the higher weight and the higher torque delivered by the electrical motor versus a combustion engine, this creates more increased wear of the tyres and requires a higher degree of rotation than for an average car.  Ensure that the tyres you purchase are environmentally produced, where no toxic chemicals have been used in the process, and that only purified low-aromatic oils are used. This applies both to your summer tyres as well as to your winter tyres.

Use also tyres with low rolling resistance that consumes less electricity and wear the tyres at a lower rate and thus produces less tyre waste.  Proper inflation pressure also reduces the rolling resistance and, in the same manner, reduces energy consumption and tyre waste.

Make sure that returning them to the tyre shop where you purchased them, so they can properly recycle your used tyres. They will have an established process for this. All efforts that can be taken to reduce CO2 emissions and use environmentally friendly products is a step in the right direction.
