Apollo Tyres launches new EV-specific tires in India

Apollo Tyres introduced electric vehicle (EV) tires for both passenger vehicles and two-wheelers. Apollo’s Amperion range of tires for the PV segment, whereas Apollo WAV range for the two-wheelers, were launched for the Indian market.

The Apollo Amperion is designed to cater to the EVs in hatchback, compact SUV and sedan segments in India, like the Tata Nexon, MG ZSE, Hyundai Kona and other upcoming EVs, the company says. The company says the Apollo Amperion has also become the first Indian tire to receive fuel savings labeled with a five-star rating for the PV category by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE).

The Apollo WAV will cater to the majority of high-powered electric scooters available in India, like TVS iQube, Bajaj Chetak and Ather 450. The company plans to develop EV tires for motorcycles in the next phase, considering the extremely low numbers in this category currently, Apollo says.
