Airless tires will not be built for all types of cars, but only for electric ones. Their purpose is to reduce the weight of the car and to increase the performance of an electric car, but also one powered by hydrogen.
It seems that Toyota has provided some information about their creation: each tire will have an individual motor, the weight of the car will be significantly lower and the performance will be much higher.
The Japanese hope that by 2025 it will reach the point where each tire drops by 5 kilograms in weight.
The Japanese from Toyota say that these airless tires will be especially wanted by the electric and hybrid electric car manufacturers. At the Tokyo Motor Show airless tires were fitted to the Toyota Fine-Comfort Ride Concept.
Toyota is not the first to think of it. Michelin and Bridgestone are ahead of the Japanese idea, as Michelin has already developed a golf tire version and Bridgestone is still working on a similar concept.
The Japanese are renowned for their new ideas from some of the smartest minds, but airless tires are something quite out of the ordinary. As the technology advances in rapid succession, some cars drive unaided, and buses are no longer classical, but electric and capable of ensuring passenger safety, meaning airless tires are just one step forward for the automotive universe.
