New Citroën C3: GoodYear tyres optimised for autonomy

The new Citroën C3 in red colour

The new Citroën ë-C3 electric car has caused a sensation since its launch thanks to its particularly affordable price of less than €20,000, excluding government subsidies. Thanks to its 44 kWh LFP battery, the new C3 has a range of 326 kilometres, which is ideal for a family. This autonomy has been optimised thanks to Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 tyres, illustrating a new step between Citroën and Goodyear.

Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 tyres are specially designed to meet the needs of electric vehicles, offering low rolling resistance for extended range. Their flexible tread pattern ensures optimal durability even on rough roads, while helping to reduce cracking caused by uneven road surfaces.

The cooperation between Citroën and Goodyear is not new. It has been strengthened over the years with initiatives focused on sustainable development. In fact, Goodyear has already developed the Eagle GO concept tyre for the Citroën Oli concept car, using sustainable or recycled materials in its manufacture. In addition, the tyre manufacturer has already supported the Chevron brand in its Citroën Skate concept, which reinvents urban mobility, without forgetting that Goodyear has already equipped the tyres of the brand's 19_19 concept in 2019.

The partnership between Citroën and Goodyear is also part of Goodyear's new "Ready for EV" strategy, illustrated by the introduction of specific markings such as Electric Drive Technology (EDT) and Electric Drive Ready (EDR) on tyres intended for electric vehicles. These markings guarantee optimal adaptation to the requirements of EV and PHEV vehicles, providing a safe and efficient electric driving experience.

Without a doubt, the new Citroën ë-C3 electric embodies the future of electric mobility, combining comfort, durability and style. With a maximum range of 326 kilometres, the new C3 can cover a family's weekly needs with one charge per week. This performance is the result of controlled consumption, thanks in particular to the GoodYear tyres.
