JK Tyre has also only just introduced its new Ranger HPE line of smart radial tyres, which are designed specifically for electric vehicles. In India, these innovative tyres will be made accessible for use on all vehicle types, including buses, trucks, light commercial vehicles (LCVs), and passenger automobiles.
