EV tire trial to reduce air and microplastic pollution in London

DPD is joining forces with the electric vehicle tire developer Enso to conduct full road trials of a new commercial EV tire design, specified to reduce air and microplastic pollution.

During the trial with DPD, Enso will compare its tire design with industry benchmarks on a fleet of DPD’s Nissan e-NV200 vans over a nine-month period, measuring improvements in energy efficiency and tire durability.

The trial is a part of Transport for London’s FreightLab Innovation Challenge, which is backed by the Mayor of London.
