LinkedIn +

Goodyear has introduced the RangeMax RSDEV, its first tire suitable for fitment on electric-, petrol- and diesel-powered regional work vehicles.

Described as the company’s best regional drive tire for energy efficiency, the RangeMax RSDEV has been designed to handle the higher load capacities associated with EVs while providing lower rolling resistance than similar tires.

Goodyear has designed the tire using its Treadlock technology to ensure it benefits from even wear characteristics to deliver more miles before the end of its service life.

Additional features include a robust casing construction for enhanced durability and an enhanced tread pattern to deal with high-torque scenarios. The RangeMax RSDEV is also Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake and Mud and Snow certified, designating a high level of performance in winter driving conditions.

The RangeMax RSDEV is Goodyear’s first regional drive tire to be embossed with the company’s Electric Drive Ready designation. It is available in size 295/75R22.5.

“The new RangeMax RSDEV strives to live up to its name and deliver the superior range and confidence that come with ultra-low rolling resistance,” said Tom Lippello, senior director of commercial marketing at Goodyear North America. “With the continued growth we’re observing in the regional EV segment, changing powertrains and fleets’ cost-savings and sustainability priorities, Goodyear recognized an opportunity to provide fleets and original equipment manufacturers with a tire designed for the unique needs of these vehicles.”
