Electric vehicles have been the focus when it comes to the auto industry becoming more sustainable. The clean alternative provides no emissions, and the increase in solar power advancements will only improve this method over time. However, many people may not be thinking about the parts associated with putting the vehicles together. GM is hoping to change the course by using natural rubber tires.

The automaker announced earlier this week that it’ll be working with its tire suppliers to create the wheels from natural rubber. Some of the company’s leading tire manufacturers include Bridgestone, Hankook, Kumho, and Michelin. They also hope this movement will encourage other car and tire manufacturers to do the same.
