Apollo OE on Indian electric car
Following a claimed development time of just six months, Apollo Tyres has rolled out its new Amazer 3G, a tyre specifically intended for fitment on Mahindra and Mahindra’s first electric car, the e2o. The rolling resistance optimised Amazer 3G is standard fitment for the e2o in size 155/70 R13 – a size the vehicle manufacture exclusively acquires from Apollo.
“Apollo Tyres has always believed in a collaborative approach towards research and development,” commented Satish Sharma, Apollo Tyres Ltd’s chief of India Operations. “Of course, working with a progressive OE partner like Mahindra and Mahindra, makes our road to excellence that much smoother. Our product labs benefit from some of the best minds in the global automotive and tyre industry, through our tie-ups with premium research and technology institutions across geographies. For us, innovation does not mean much, unless it can create tangible value for the customer, ensure a safe ride and deliver on the promise of sustainability.”
