JK Tyre & Industries on 21 June 2024 introduced an advanced range of tyres designed to meet the evolving needs of the transportation sector. JK Tyre plans to further strengthen their truck & bus radial range with four new variants: Jetway JUM XM, Jetway JUC XM, Jetsteel JDC XD, and the Jetway JUXe for electric buses.

We are confident that these tyres will serve as a dependable companion for fleet operators, ensuring safety on the move.”

JK Tyre‘s R&D center in Mysuru played a crucial role in the development of these products. All four tyres have undergone extensive testing in a variety of conditions to meet the highest standards of quality and performance.

Jetway JUM XM

The Jetway JUM XM boasts a 4-Star Rating and an RRc value of 4.9 KN/n, making it the most energy-efficient in its category. This next-generation tubeless tyre is designed specifically for buses and trucks to set new benchmarks for fuel economy and cost optimization.

This translates to significant fuel savings for transporters, addressing a crucial factor as fuel expenses account for approximately 50% of total operating costs in India. Additionally, reducing fuel consumption will also help to significantly reduce carbon emissions, providing a sustainable and economically viable solution for the transportation industry

Jetway JUC XM and Jetseteel JDC XD

In response to India’s robust infrastructure development, JK Tyre has launched its X-Series product range: Jetway JUC XM and Jetsteel JDC XD tyres. Engineered to meet the current demand, these two tyres offer enhanced performance, durability, and efficiency.

With a remarkable 10% longer tyre life, the JUC XM has been developed for tippers and trailers, delivering lower operational costs and increased efficiency, making it an ideal choice. Whereas, the JDC XD tyre is made to handle the demanding requirements of heavy-load transportation, ensuring long-lasting performance and reliability even in on- and off-road conditions. The tyre is built for use in tippers on drive and dummy axles.

Jetway JUXe

Specially designed for electric buses, the Jetway JUXe is a revolutionary tyre in the category posited to redefine performance and sustainability standards in the electric vehicle (EV) segment. The low RRc tyres enable electric buses to travel more kilometres per charge, contributing to enhanced efficiency and operational cost savings.

In addition to its energy-efficient design, the JUXe marks JK Tyre‘s foray into low-noise tyres, aligning with the company’s commitment to sustainability. Low-noise tyres not only contribute to a quieter urban environment but also promote eco-friendly transportation solutions, making them ideal for the evolving needs of India’s sustainable mobility landscape

The Jetway JUXe tyre will also be deployed on TATA Motors’ EV buses, demonstrating a collaborative effort to drive innovation and sustainability in India’s public transportation sector.
