Goodyear has approved summer and winter tyres for the ID.3 in 18, 19- and 20-inch sizes.
The new Volkswagen ID.3, which is now being delivered to customers across Europe, will have Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance tyres in sizes 215/55 R18, 215/50 R19 and 215/45 R20, in addition to the UltraGrip Performance and UltraGrip Performance+ winter tyres in sizes 215/55 R18 and 215/50 R19.
“We are very proud that Volkswagen has chosen to equip this pioneering model with Goodyear tyres,” said Hans Vrijsen, Managing Director OE at Goodyear EMEA, “Goodyear is committed to developing products that deliver the performance Electric Vehicles require. We are working with all major OEMs on Electric and Hybrid mobility and half of our original equipment tire developments in Europe are for EVs and hybrids.”
The ID.3 is Volkswagen’s first vehicle developed exclusively for electric mobility. In Volkswagen’s own words, this is a car that ushers in "the beginning of a new era marked by electromobility." The ID.3 is based on the modular MEB platform, the Volkswagen Group’s new 100 per cent electric platform, which will lead to other models in the near future.
The tyres fitted to the Volkswagen ID.3 feature SealTech, a sealant technology that is Goodyear's latest extended mobility solution. SealTech seals punctures up to 5mm in diameter in the tread area of the tyre, providing excellent and balanced driving performance.
