Various EV Vehicles Now Covered by Alligator RS-series Sensors

Alligator RS & RS+ universal TPMS sensors now cover various electric & hybrid vehicles: GMC Hummer, Rivian R1S & R1T, Tesla (433 MHz models), Lucid Air, Karma Revero, Mazda MX-30 and Kia EV6.
The Hummer, R1S/R1T, Teslas, Lucid Air, and EV6 are battery-electric (BEV) while the Revero is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). The MX-30 is available in BEV, PHEV and mild hybrid (MHEV) variants.

The new vehicle coverage is part of Wegmann’s process of continually adding value to the sensor line, making them the most universal sensor on the market. Any shop that is having trouble finding replacement TPMS sensors due to supply-chain issues can now use Alligator RS/RS+ sensors for the vehicles. Keeping Alligator sensors in-stock means less trips to the parts store.

The cars & trucks are an example of an ongoing trend in OEM TPMS systems – automatic learning. If a scan tool isn’t available for sensor-ID registration, then techs can simply park the vehicle for 20 minutes and drive until the pressures for the new tires show up on the display.

Using sensors that have an auto-learning feature is especially helpful for DIYers that install wheels themselves but don’t have access to a scanner for registering the new IDs and for wheel shops that rely on the end-users to handle the TPMS learning process.

Shops that use Alligator TPMS sensors are working with a part that supports the full range of OE features which makes the techs’ jobs easier, reduces unnecessary downtime in the bays for TPMS learning or sensor issues, helps the business’ bottom line, and keeps its customers happy and coming back.

Whichever tool is used for sensor programming, these vehicles should be available after completing the latest update.
