Tyre emissions from battery electric vehicles: wear rates and toxicity
This presentation will bring together original test results from Emissions Analytics on the links between tyre mass emissions and toxicity, placed in the context of the latest ‘EV specialist’ tyre models that have been brought to market. The headline findings are that the switch the electric vehicle creates a material risk of higher wear and greater toxicity, but this does not have to be the outcome if industry and regulators establish an effective framework for evaluating tyre emissions.
