As electric vehicle sales and ownership continue to steadily accelerate in Australia in line with the rise in many other countries around the world, Maxxis is delighted to introduce the cutting-edge Maxxis VS-EV tyre into its range.
Developed and designed exclusively for electric vehicles by the global Maxxis R&D team, the VS-EV is a quiet, efficient and highly durable touring/sport tyre that combines high-tech innovation with the solid reliability and performance for which Maxxis is renowned.
Suitable for Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV), Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) as well as Hybrid Vehicles (HV), the Maxxis EV is already making its mark as a safe and dependable electric vehicle tyre that’s going to go the distance.
Each of the VS-EV ‘s features and attributes have been carefully and expertly engineered with specific reference to electric vehicles and their unique requirements.
While a new generation EV-specific tread compound ensures optimal rolling resistance levels and increased mileage, the VS-EV’s maximised road contact patch ensures exceptional braking and extended tread life. Deep tread ribs and a unique shaped sipe ensure optimal water dispersion for safe wet weather driving and a wide, asymmetrical shoulder design ensures excellent high-speed stability.
Plus, the extra exciting news is that there’s far more to the new Maxxis tyre than meets the eye when it comes to delivering a full spectrum of great wins for electric vehicle drivers. Amongst its many great “inner” qualities, sound absorbing foam technology reduces cavity noise for an extremely quiet ride, while performance and safety, comfort, driving enjoyment and optimal fuel efficiency are all part of the ride!
Winning a “Best New Product” award in the “Tyre and Related Product” category at the annual international SEMA trade show held in Las Vegas in November 2022, the VS-EV was quickly recognised for being one of the most innovative and cutting-edge automotive aftermarket products in its class. Winners at the show were selected based on a variety of factors including superiority of innovation, technical achievement, quality and workmanship, consumer appeal and marketability, just for starters.
Commenting on the VS-EV’s award, Chris Jenkins, Maxxis International Automotive Programs & Marketing Manager explained that it’s an outstanding tyre and great product for EV drivers, who’ll get a better ride and better mileage – and all importantly it delivers for the environment: “Sustainability is also a priority for Maxxis, so we’re very pleased that this product is as good for our environment as it is for consumers.”
