BEST FOR Cars, crossovers and SUVs
TESTED BY The Osbornes, parents to a 13-year-old daughter
BOTTOM LINE “The ERANGE tires were quiet and performed generally well. They were comparable to our stock tires, which are a higher price point. We felt confident on the road.”
Even though they’re a relatively small part of the market, electric vehicles (EVs) are continuing to gain sales in Canada. There are several reasons why an EV is a solid choice for the family car, from its appealing environmental record (no gasoline or harmful exhaust) to the storage size available in electric SUVs.
Electric vehicles differ from their gas-powered counterparts in that they have powerful instant torque, meaning the velocity that propels the car forward is strong due to the electric current that sparks and starts the engine. Higher torque, as well as the extra weight of the electric battery, increases tire wear and tear, so it’s ideal to use a tire formulated specifically for EVs.
Sailun has created their first tire product line designed, constructed and tested for electric vehicles, the new ERANGE. It’s the most advanced tire Sailun has produced using all-new technology that offers longer-lasting, quieter tires. The tires also help cut down on how often your EV needs to be charged. The Osborne family tested these tires on their Tesla 3 sedan in different weather conditions, in a mid-size city and on the highway.
