New eco-tyre features improved fuel efficiency, superior wet grip and extended wear life

25th May 2017, Thailand – With over 20 years of experience in developing state of the art technologies and technical know-how to design high performing eco oriented products, Bridgestone is proud to unveil the new Passenger Radial ECOPIA EP300 Tyre. EP300 is positioned as next generation eco-tyre that offers low rolling resistance and superior wet grip performance while delivering an extended wear life. Through the innovative design concept and engineering solutions adopted, EP300 revolutionizes and redefines the concept of an eco-tyre by bringing it to the next level as embodied in its tagline “When You Want It All”. Demanding Drivers that “Want it all” have now available in the market a product that will fully meet their expectations.

Inherent in the ECOPIA family, EP300 is tested and proven to achieve significant fuel savings of up to 2 liters every full tank compared with conventional tyres. In tests comparing EP300 to previous ECOPIA generation, the results demonstrate that the new techonologies and design concept adopted for EP300 help to achieve an improved fuel savings, while offering drivers additional travelling distance of up to 11.2 km3 per tank and a superior wet grip performance for a safer drive on wet asphalt.

“Most drivers desire a way to achieve better fuel efficiency that translates into fuel savings. However, despite how careful drivers can be on the accelerator, if a vehicle is not equipped with the optimum eco-tyres, achieving good fuel efficiency and economy will be a challenge,” commented from Mr. Truong Hoang Minh, Planning & Marketing Senior Manager, Bridgestone Vietnam. “With the new ECOPIA EP300, we aim to bring drivers the best possible return from their vehicles while allowing them to do their part for the environment, as lower rolling resistance brings reduced CO2 emissions.”
