Apollo Tyres has partnered with NATRAX to establish India’s first test track dedicated to validating tyres for Electric Vehicles (EVs) and low rolling resistance tyres. This collaboration aims to provide EV manufacturers with a dedicated facility to test and validate the cut and chip resistance of tyres, crucial due to the unique characteristics of EVs like regenerative braking and high-speed acceleration. Inaugurating the facility, Dr. Hanif Qureshi from the Ministry of Heavy Industries emphasized sustainable mobility, while Satish Sharma, President of Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa at Apollo Tyres, highlighted the company’s commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction. The new testing facility will expedite tyre development for OEMs, particularly for EVs, and low rolling resistance tyres tailored for Indian roads. Dr. Manish Jaiswal, Director of NATRAX, emphasized the track’s importance, marking a milestone in NATRAX’s transformation into a global automotive testing hub. Daniele Lorenzetti, CTO at Apollo Tyres, noted the track’s role in reducing product development time and advancing Apollo Tyres’ EV product journey.
