Pirelli launches new tyres at Tyrexpo India 2018
Italian tyre manufacturer Pirelli has launched Cinturato P6 and Scorpion AT Plus tyre for high-performance cars and SUVs at the Tyrexpo India 2018 in New Delhi, India. Cinturato P6 is an enhanced version of Cinturato P1 and provides the perfect equilibrium of performances, fuel saving, comfort and high level of safety for mid-size and compact cars. It has a new pattern design to increase contact patch area (+5% vs reference) and uniform pressure distribution, enhancing braking performance on wet/dry (-3% wet braking distance vs reference), improve aquaplaning, reduce noise and improve regular wear.
“The company remains committed to fulfilling the aspirations of Indian customers with its superior products and services. Pirelli has introduced the latest products in India that are available in the international market. The Indian customer should experience the same top quality products, which are available to their International customers in other countries,” said Sanjay Mathur, General Manager for Pirelli Tyres in India.
Cinturato P6 comes with optimised tread design with specific pitch sequence to improve the noise performance. The other benefits include wider longitudinal grooves (+5% vs reference) for a better water dispersion (green grooves); wider external traversal grooves (+5% vs reference) to improve the contact area having better water dispersion (red grooves); -3% wet braking distance vs reference; and +10% improvement on Rolling Resistance.
The Scorpion AT Plus comes with more features of Scorpion ATR for SUVs. The new tyre is optimised for wear, durability and traction while delivering balanced performance in both on and off-road driving situations. It also gets a revised look with a more aggressive tread pattern and upper sidewall design that’s been developed to not only bolster capability but also provide the kind of beefed-up look SUV owners in this segment are looking for.
