Při výběru letních pneumatik pro hybridní nebo elektrická vozidla je důležité vzít v úvahu rozdíl mezi těmito vozidly a tradičními spalovacími vozy. Elektrická a hybridní vozidla mají akumulátory, díky nimž jsou těžší než tradiční vozidla na benzín. To znamená, že přilnavost je ještě důležitější, aby umožnila správné brzdění a krátkou brzdnou dráhu. Celým důvodem pro řízení elektrického nebo hybridního vozidla je samozřejmě samozřejmě zanechání menší ekologické stopy. Proto jsou pneumatiky Nokian ekologickou volbou, protože mají nízký valivý odpor ke snížení množství energie potřebné pro každou cestu.
