What Makes Electric-Vehicle Tires Different?, 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6

With co-host Jill Ciminillo out on assignment this week, host Tom Appel and co-host Damon Bell start the show by discussing Tom’s unusual experience in a Mercedes-Benz EQS test vehicle, and Hyundai’s recently unveiled Ioniq 6 pure-electric midsize sedan. TJ Campbell, Tire Information and Testing Manager at The Tire Rack, joins us to explain the unique characteristics of tires for electric vehicles. Tom has a “which is the better seller?” quiz for Damon, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a test-drive review of the redesigned-for-2022 Toyota Tundra (in top-line Capstone trim).
