    TIRES TO CHARGE AN EV BATTERY

    Heat-gathering concept tire charges electric cars on the go At the Geneva auto show, Goodyear shows off an intriguing concept tire that would feed an electric car's batteries while rolling down the road.

    Amanda Kooser, March 4, 2015 (CNET)

    “…A Goodyear [BH03] concept tire approaches [electric-car-range anxiety] with a way to charge an electric car while it's rolling down the road…[I]t takes the heat generated while driving and transforms it into electrical energy that could be used to recharge a car's batteries…Details on the tire, which is constructed with a layer of thermo-piezoelectric material, are a bit vague…The BH03 tire is also designed with ultra-black textured patches meant to absorb both light and heat. Sunlight warms up the tires on a parked electric car, adding to the heat that can be transformed into electric energy…These tires may not reach the market anytime soon, but they do give us a fascinating glimpse at the future of high-tech tires.” click here for more
