According to JATO Dynamics, SUVs now account for approximately 40 per cent of Europe’s car market, up from around 25 per cent five years ago. Goodyear has a new tyre for this growing market, a successor to its EfficientGrip SUV. Starting this month, Goodyear is introducing the EfficientGrip 2 SUV and over the coming year will release a range of 52 dimensions for 16- to 22-inch rim diameters.
Goodyear says the EfficientGrip 2 SUV offers 25 per cent better mileage compared with the previous-generation tyre and claims shorter braking distances on wet and dry surfaces.
“With extra mileage and a number of SKUs featuring high load indexes, EfficientGrip 2 SUV tyres are ideally suited not just for the demands of SUVs, but also for electric vehicles,” comments iotr Nagalski, director of marketing for Goodyear Europe.
