@Zed I don’t have knowledge of the analogy between bicycle and automobile tires. I do know the Electric Vehicles (EVs) have requirements with different priority than Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) tires.
For EVs, energy efficiency is most important. Tire manufacturers have developed tires with lower rolling resistance by using certain rubber compounds. My 2017 Chevrolet Bolt has the factory-installed “Michelin Energy Saver A/S” tires. Michelin claims they give up to 8% higher efficiency than typical all-weather tires.
For their size, EVs are much heavier than similar ICE (primarily because of the large battery). This is taken into consideration for the tires used.
Torque characteristics for an electric motor are vastly different than an ICE. An electric gives maximum torque at zero RPMs. You can take off from a stop light leaving ICE behind, if you want to. Of course you consume excess energy doing this. There is a problem with high torque, see below. It’s not just more powerful electrics that can do this; even my wife’s modestly powered 2015 Nissan Leaf can do it. BTW, concerning tires, you don’t have to use energy efficient tires, her Leaf has a typical all-weather set and does just fine… except for some range reduction.
Tires designed to be quiet are also desirable. At highway speed about all you hear are wind and tire noise… which can be surprisingly loud, but still quieter than an ICE.
One energy efficient tire compromise made is traction, even thought tire manufacturers deny it. With the high torque, you can “spin tires” anytime if you choose to.
