Pirelli & Cie SpA more than doubled its total number of tire approvals on electric and hybrid vehicles last year. 

According to Pirelli officials, since the launch of the company's Elect line in 2019, "car manufacturers are increasingly choosing this technology and have allowed Pirelli to expand (its) homologation portfolio."

Most recently, Pirelli tires were fitted on the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept car, which was displayed at the Tire Cologne show in Germany.

"Thanks to increasingly innovative technology, we support the transition of car manufacturers towards greener vehicles with tires suited to their performance," says Pierangelo Misani, Pirelli's senior vice president of research and development.
