Wondering who designed the tyres for the Maruti Suzuki Futuro-E EV Concept? Well, Yokohama tyres have announced that it was the tyre brand behind designing the powerful and fuel-efficient tyre for the Maruti Suzuki Concept displayed on the first day of Auto Expo 2020. It is placed under its BluEarth tyre range which is aimed at enhancing the fuel economy of the vehicle. The new SUV tyre was displayed alongside the Futuro-E EV concept at the Maruti Suzuki pavilion.

Aimed at the newer generation of the urban Sports Utility Vehicles, the Yokohama tyre for the concept features a stylish yet powerful design pattern. The Japanese rubber maker also claimed to blend the features of hardcore SUV tyres and smooth-running vehicle tyres so the new tyre born gets the best of both worlds. The Futuro-E EV Concept’s tyre carries large lug grooves in its tread typical of a powerful SUV and rib grooves seen on smooth-running cars. Thus, a new generation of urban SUV tyres was born, Yokohama claimed.

India is important for Yokohama and it has been aggressively pushing its products into the market. In July 2014, it began its local tyre production in the country. Many cars and SUVs are factory-fitted with Yokohama tyres due to its tie-up with original equipment manufacturers of India. Besides, it has earned a good reputation in the replacement tyre market. Its Yokohama Geolander series is highly famous among SUV enthusiasts.

Under the Yokohama India portfolio, it produces tyres under passenger as well as the SUV category. In the passenger tyre category, it retails Advan Sport, BluEarth-A, BluEarth RV-02, Earth-1, and S.drive. On the other hand, its SUV category tyres comprise of Geolandar A/T G015 and Geolander SUV.

Maruti Suzuki unveiled the Futuro-E EV concept at the Auto Expo 2020 under its Mission Green Million. India’s largest passenger carmaker is looking to foray into the electric vehicle segment soon.
