YOKOHAMA LAUNCHES THE ADVAN SPORT EV A/S
By Éric Descarries
Pneus Yokohama (Canada) Inc. has just announced the launch of its very first ultra-high-performance all-season tire designed specifically for electric vehicles (EVs), the ADVAN Sport (M.D.) EV A/S. This product made its world premiere in mid-November.
The ADVAN Sport EV A/S, which will officially go on sale on January 1, 2024, will be available in nine sizes for rims from 18 to 20 inches. It is the first tire to bear the new E+ mark, which means it is compatible with electric vehicles (EVs) and meets their unique requirements.
Here are just a few of its features: long, reliable tread life with uniform treadwear, optimized ride quality thanks to maximized sidewall construction, exceptional all-season grip thanks to a new tread compound that uses more silica and an exclusive compounding process to dramatically improve mileage and performance on snow, and superior handling thanks to a performance shoulder that features extra-wide outer shoulder blocks to improve grip in corners. Add to this Yokohama Canada’s 60-day satisfaction guarantee and a 100,000 km limited warranty on tread wear.
