The Goodyear blimp floats its way to CES 2020

Goodyear brought its famous blimp to Las Vegas for this year’s CES. Floating over the Strip, people below surely wondered why the 120 year-old tire company would be at a tech show.

At an event on Tuesday night, Goodyear unveiled AndGo, what they’re calling, the future of mobility.

AndGo is a seamless vehicle servicing platform that combines predictive software and a trusted, national service network to enable consumer fleets to be ready to go when they are needed.

Beyond just tire service, AndGo delivers full vehicle readiness, helping consumer fleets boost their performance. Through monitoring of service needs and quick and easy scheduling, AndGo activates Goodyear’s vast service network for convenient scheduling to reduce downtime.

Additionally, Goodyear announced a new venture capital fund, called Goodyear Ventures, which will have $100 million targeted for new investments in future mobility solutions over the next 10 years.

Goodyear’s Chairman, CEO and President Richard J. Kramer said, “Goodyear is a technology-driven mobility company that seeks out and partners with other mobility thought leaders ranging from small startups to proven business models. Goodyear Ventures will take this effort to the next level to engage and shape how people move in the future.”

AndGo is currently available in select U.S. markets today and will expand to additional markets in mid-2020.
