Giti wins Renault Group OE fitments
Giti Tire has won three Renault Group homologations. Its GitiSynergyE1, in size 185/65 R15 88H, will be fitted as original equipment on the Dacia Sandero, Logan and MCV which are available in every major market throughout Europe. The news follows Giti’s inaugural European placement with the Volkswagen Group.
The GitiSynergyE1 is designed to lower a vehicle’s CO2 footprint while delivering a superior level of safety on wet and dry roads. The brand’s range for Europe, which additionally consists of the GitiSportS1, GitiSportS1 SUV, GitiPremiumH1 and GitiWinterW1, was developed exclusively by the company’s German-based R&D Centre with all track tests undertaken at its MIRA facility in the UK, Idiada in Spain and ATP in Germany.
Stefan Fischer, managing director – product technology and OE at Giti Tire Europe, said: “The relationship with the Renault Group dates back to the first GT Radial placement in 2014, but our strategy clearly dictates that all new OE fitments will operate under the flagship Giti branded passenger car and SUV portfolio.
“What we have proven to this eminent European vehicle manufacturer over the last three years is the ongoing quality of our tyres, the strength of our supply chain and our commitment to work as closely as possible to maintain incredibly high standards as required at OE level.”
“To confirm two major vehicle manufacturer OE fitments in less than one month is testament to years of hard work, both by the European R&D team and everyone associated with Giti” concludes Martin Wells, key account director OEM – Europe for Giti Tire. “We will announce more very soon.”
