AKRON, Ohio, March 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- As a leading supplier of tires and solutions for future mobility, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (GT) today announced a new pilot program with Envoy Technologies, a provider of shared on-demand, community-based electric vehicles (EVs). Envoy's fleet managers can see its fleet's status, schedule maintenance needs and update appointments with Goodyear's on-demand scheduling program, helping to keep its vehicles operational and avoid the typically unforeseen issues that might suddenly force a shared vehicle to be pulled from service. The two-year-old company recently passed a milestone of more than 100 vehicles deployed at partner sites with a pipeline of 1,800 vehicles to be launched in major metropolitan areas across the nation, including Portland, Seattle, Austin, Chicago, New York, Boston, Miami and Washington, D.C. "This pilot with Goodyear helps us provide more comprehensive fleet management services and ensures vehicle readiness for our customers," said Envoy co-founder Aric Ohana. Goodyear's effort with Envoy builds on a successful test program with Tesloop, a city-to-city mobility service that exclusively used Tesla electric vehicles, and the commercialization of Goodyear Proactive Solutions for truck fleets, using advanced telematics and predictive analytics technology to allow fleet operators to optimize fuel efficiency and precisely identify and resolve tire-related issues before they happen.
