Nokian Launches Hakkapeliitta 7
Nokian Tyres is introducing a new Hakkapeliitta winter tyre. Called the Hakkapeliitta 7, the studded tyre has been developed for demanding and quickly changing winter conditions. Nokian says the tyre, which replaces the Hakkapeliitta 5, combines its winter properties with driving comfort. Driving comfort was chosen as an essential target for improvement, the Finnish manufacturer adds, and has been enhanced without compromising levels of grip.
The new range will be directed at Nokian’s main markets in the Nordic countries, Russia, and the Ukraine. Deliveries will begin in spring 2009, with availability for consumers commencing the following autumn. The studded tyre is said to offer the most extensive size range on the market.
