Bridgestone To Supply Tyres For The Audi Q4 e-tron
Published On 03-Dec-2021
Bridgestone has developed custom-engineered ultra-low rolling resistance summer tyres for the e-tron.
Bridgestone announced that it has been chosen as tyre supplier for the Audi Q4 e-tron – Audi’s first compact, fully-electric SUV.
To meet Audi’s demanding technical requirements for the Q4 e-tron, Bridgestone developed custom-engineered ultra-low rolling resistance summer tyres with ENLITEN Technology. Sustainable and lightweight, ENLITEN Technology reduces tyre rolling resistance by up to 30% and weight by up to 20% to extend EV driving range and reduce environmental impact thanks to improved resource productivity, said the company in a release.
The bespoke summer tyres offer a rolling resistance performance that betters the European A label grade threshold, and make no compromises when it comes to on-road stability, which is crucial for the heavy load on a rear traction vehicle, it further added.
Bridgestone said that it sees electric mobility as a huge opportunity to reduce CO2 emissions and make mobility more environmentally sustainable, and is proud to be collaborating with Audi in helping to accelerate the electric future.
The Audi Q4 e-tron with bespoke Bridgestone Turanza ECO summer and Blizzak LM005 winter tyres, developed and produced in Europe, is now available on the European market.
