The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company introduced the BH03, a radical concept tire at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show that directly effects the plug-in electric car and hybrid markets.
This tire generates electricity through both static and dynamic actions through materials that transform the energy created by heat when it flexes as it rolls during normal driving conditions as well as heat from light when it is stationary. The materials used optimize the tire’s electricity generation capabilities as well as its rolling resistance.
The EV market has only just begun. This technology has the potential to significantly contribute to the of future of the EV automotive sector. This new approach of extending range just might gain some traction. No word on the amount of energy that might be generated.
