European tyre labelling requires tyre manufacturers to work on their product ranges to present tyres with good ratings in the autumn.   Particularly for the energy efficiency criteria, put to the fore in the regulations.  Toyo is no exception to the rule.

Renowned for its sports tyres (Toyo is Audi’s official supplier), Toyo chose the International Tyre Fair in Essen to unveil its green tyre range. Known as NanoEnergy, it is characterised by a low rolling resistance.

For now, the range has two tyres.  The NanoEnergy 1 for small-sized and city cars, and the NanoEnergy 2, designed to equip medium-sized and compact cars, such as the Renault Megane or the Peugeot 207.


Toyo has presented the performances of its new tyres using the tyre labelling criteria.  Bear in mind that the grades are only valid for a given tyre size, and not for the entire range.
