Pirelli: a new green tyre for powerful cars.

New tyres Published the 31/03/2010

An “eco-responsible” tyre for SUVs and Crossovers? No, not a dream – at the Geneva Motor Show, the Italian manufacturer presented its new green tyre, the Scorpion Verde, designed to be fitted to energy-greedy cars.

Green tyres and SUVs are not natural partners, yet the Italian manufacturer has just put paid to this paradox by presenting its new ecological tyre, the Scorpion Verde. A tyre made of new materials and a new structure, and which, according to Pirelli, shows good results. Judge for yourself: constant performance throughout the life of the tyre, lower toxic emissions, reduced noise, a better energy index, shorter braking distances and enhanced comfort. And that’s not all, as this new tyre has been designed to offer better safety on wet roads. Its tread pattern comprised of four deep longitudinal grooves favour water dispersal. Moreover, innovative compounds and reinforced shoulders increase grip on all types of surface. This new tyre manufactured without aromatic oils and which claims a 20% reduction in rolling resistance, completes the Pirelli Cinturato range of green tyres, inaugurated in 2008. In major manufacturers’ race for green tyres, Pirelli is not alone in this segment. Dunlop is preparing to launch its new ultra-high performance tyre, the SP QuattroMaxx to be fitted to SUVs. The Milan group’s intention and technical prowess is to be saluted, but it would be wrong to consider this new tyre as an equal to green tyres for city cars, for example.

The Scorpion Verde will be available on the replacement market from April 2010.
