Tyres that give electric vehicles (EV) a longer run on a single charge by reducing resistance: JK Tyre is betting there is a market for such specialised products.

The company on Friday launched low-resistance tyres for EVs; it also introduced smart tyres that give real-time updates about pressure, temperature and punctures to a driver’s mobile phone app.

It is in talks with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for Ranger HPe tyres meant for EV customers. The Ranger X-AT tyres, designed to handle extreme terrains, are made for the SUV segment of the passenger car market.
