Royal Mail has embarked on a six to nine-month trial of new tyres on a number of electric vehicles (EVs). The tyres are specially designed to help reduce particulate matter emissions and improve the range, efficiency and longevity of vehicles. Announced on 19 August, the trial is a joint venture between Royal Mail, Transport for London (TfL) and ENSO, as part of the London FreightLab innovation challenge. This challenge aims to tackle pollution, congestion and road danger in London. The tyres, from manufacturer ENSO, are claimed to produce fewer microparticles in comparison to normal tyres, and increase vehicle range. Tests carried out by ENSO have seemingly shown that its tyres can also increase EV range by up to 11%, compared to standard tyres. Fifteen electric vans at the West London Delivery Office, near Wembley, will be fitted with the new tyres during the trial.
