ZC Rubber OE Tyre Supplier For The Changan C385 EV

Zhongce Rubber Group (ZC Rubber), a leading Chinese tyre manufacturer, will equip Changan Automobile's first EV model, the C385, with its SU318a tyres.

ZC Rubber's SU318a is an all-season tyre boasting an M+S design for all-season enhanced traction, improved handling and comfort. Complementing the excellent dynamics and comfort of Changan's new EV model, the SU318a features a CAD-designed block to lower the road noise level, thus befitting the silent nature of an EV.

With serrated siping and four circumferential grooves to dissipate water for excellent grip and handling, the tyre offers reduced rolling resistance while the special silica tech compound ensures better fuel economy.

The collaboration follows a long-time strategic partnership between the companies. Apart from this OE fitment, the companies are developing additional tyres for Changan’s EV models. 

According to a statement by ZC Rubber, "Model Type C385 is Changan's first strategic model in the field of electric vehicles. It focuses on high-end positioning and has high requirements for the fuel economy, comfort, handling, and other performance of the OE tires. As such, we are very pleased to be the first OE supplier, as it shows our products are extremely competitive in the EV segment." (TT)
