Yokohama Tire’s New ADVAN Sport® EV A/S Hits the U.S. Market

Yokohama Tire’s ADVAN Sport® EV A/S – an ultra high-performance all-season tire specifically designed for electric vehicles (EVs) – is now on sale in the U.S.

The Sport EV is available in 10 sizes ranging from 18 to 20 inches, according to Drew Dayton, Yokohama Tire’s senior product planning manager, consumer tires. “It’s the first tire to carry the new E+ badge, which signifies that the tire is compatible with electric vehicles and able to fulfill the unique set of requirements brought by EVs,” Dayton added.

The Sport EV made its public debut at the Electrify Expo show in Austin, Texas last November and was a big hit. “It gives EV drivers what they really want: tires that last!” said Dayton. “Long, reliable treadwear is hard to find in most EV-specific tires, but that’s one of the many benefits offered by the Sport EV, along with sharp steering response and powerful braking across a variety of conditions.”

All sizes of the Sport EV are backed by Yokohama’s 30-day money-back guarantee and a 55,000-mile limited treadwear warranty.

Benefits for the ADVAN Sport EV A/S include:

  • Long, reliable tread life is assured by the refined contact area, which equalizes the pressure distribution across the contact patch in high-torque EV applications to promote long, even wear.
  • Optimized ride quality is achieved by the maximized sidewall construction which enhances sidewall stiffness to produce responsive handling characteristics and a smoother ride.
  • Outstanding all-season grip comes from the new all-season compound, which utilizes more silica and a proprietary mixing process to dramatically improve mileage and snow performance while keeping the reliable dry handling of the original ADVAN Sport® A/S+.
  • Superior handling is attained by the performance shoulder which features outside shoulder blocks that are extra-large to enhance cornering.
