GitiSynergyE1 gets third Dacia original tyre deal
Giti Tire’s original equipment progress has continued with another fitment for Groupe Renault’s Dacia brand. Three months after it announced the new Dacia Sandero and Logan models would roll of factory lines on the GitiSynergyE1, the carmaker has selected the same tyre for the new Dacia Sandero Stepway. Giti will supply the tyre in size 205/60R16 92H for the model, which has recently gone into production. The GitiSynergyE1 is also OE on the Seat Arona crossover, a VW Group model in the same vehicle segment.
Designed and engineered at Giti Tire’s European Research & Development Centre in Hannover, the GitiSynergyE1 utilises the manufacturer’s next generation technology and smart solutions to achieve low rolling resistance while ensuring ride comfort and safety on wet and dry roads. The tyre was tested at the company’s MIRA facility in the UK as well as in key locations in Germany and Spain.
Thomas Franzil, general manager for Giti Tire (France) said: “To keep securing OE contracts with Groupe Renault is having a hugely positive influence on the overall reputation of Giti Tire in Europe, with many drivers recognising the key factors of performance and price.”
“To secure two contracts in two months with Groupe Renault is testament to the quality of the GitiSynergyE1 and our just-in-time delivery system, which continues to operate seamlessly despite the industry issues with Covid-19,” said Martin Wells, director OEM Europe at Giti Tire.
