European Ecopia range now covers most popular models, says Bridgestone
Since its European launch in 2010, the Bridgestone Ecopia EP150 line-up has continued to grow. The Japanese tyre maker reports that the EP150 is now available in 55 and 65 series sizes to fit a wide range of compact and medium-sized passenger cars with 14 to 16-inch rim sizes. The EP150, together with the Turanza ER300 Ecopia, forms the basis of an Ecopia product portfolio that offers sizes to fit most popular car models on European roads.
The Ecopia EP150 employs Bridgestone’s proprietary NanoPro-Tech compound, which lowers rolling resistance, and a connected block and thin rib design that enhances contact pressure and wet braking performance. Compared to current Bridgestone products of the same dimensions, the EP 150 has a 15 per cent improved rolling resistance which makes it, on average, three per cent more fuel efficient with three per cent lower CO2 output.
