BYD has picked the Continental EcoContact 6 Q to be original equipment on its Seal electric vehicle.
The tire has been designed "for energy-saving and noise-optimized driving, especially benefitting E-vehicles," say Continental AG officials.
"A special rubber compound that minimizes energy absorption while the vehicle is in motion and, in turn, reduces friction and rolling resistance has been developed for the EcoContact 6 Q.
"Continental’s developers have also improved the tire tread, helping to reduce rolling noise. In addition to short braking distances, the premium tire offers exceptional grip on dry and wet roads and excellent cornering stability even at high speeds."
