Tyres with low rolling resistance specially developed by Apollo for this electric car
On March 18, Mahindra and Mahindra launched their 1st electric car e2o, for which Apollo Amazer 3G has been chosen as the standard fitment tyre. The specially developed tyre for this electric car is a result of in?depth research by the Apollo R&D team to meet the specifications of low rolling resistance, which translates into better mileage with lesser power being drawn from the battery.
The company developed the Amazer 3G eco?friendly tyres in a short span of 6 months, to match the requirements of e2o. Currently, Apollo Tyres is the exclusive supplier of 155/70 R13 size tyres to the Indian utility vehicle major.
Speaking on the occasion, Satish Sharma, Chief, India Operations, Apollo Tyres Ltd, said
“Apollo Tyres has always believed in a collaborative approach towards research and development. Of course, working with a progressive OE partner like Mahindra and Mahindra, makes our road to excellence that much smoother. Our product labs benefit from some of the best minds in the global automotive and tyre industry, through our tieups with premium research and technology institutions across geographies. For us, innovation does not mean much, unless it can create tangible value for the customer, ensure a safe ride and deliver on the promise of sustainability.”
