Akron-based Goodyear has developed a tire that can extend the distance you can drive in electric cars. The energy generating tire known as BH-O3 would transform tire heat into electricity that would charge the car’s battery. Goodyear Spokesman Keith Price says this concept could contribute to solving future mobility challenges.

“For one thing it can do is eliminate the range anxiety that owners of electric cars have, if they are driving somewhere and there is not a place they can recharge," Price said. "This technology could enable the tires to assist in keeping the batteries charged.”

 
Price says this is still very much a concept but Goodyear likes to be ready for products that customers may want and need in the future.
