Tire manufacturer Pirelli has just announced the BMW i4 M50 will now come from the factory equipped with its Pirelli P Zero Elect ultra high performance (UHP) EV-specific tires. These tires won’t be the same as the ones you can buy off the shelf, though, since they are actually a version that has been specially developed for this very quick electric BMW.

According to Pirelli, these tires differ from those designed for internal combustion-engined vehicles in several areas. Firstly, they are reinforced to be able to handle a heavier vehicle while still maintaining their shape even when the vehicle is being driven spiritedly and they also have a special rubber compound that strikes a balance between cornering performance and having relatively low rolling resistance.
