Kumho made Reifen 2016 the occasion of its new UHP winter tyre’s world premiere, in addition to displaying its role in a project to optimise the fuel efficiency of existing diesel technology. The company’s 300sqm stand in Hall 3 also featured the company’s current portfolio of products for a wide variety of tyre segments, including electric and hybrid vehicles.
We can expect at least one world premiere from Kumho Tire at Reifen this year. In addition to showing off its current car, SUV, van and truck portfolio, South Korean tyre maker’s more than 300 square metre presence (Hall 3, Stand A40) will include a brand-new winter UHP tyre, the Wintercraft WP 71. According to Kumho, the tyre is aimed large and luxury cars (D and F-segment vehicles) and offers improved braking characteristics over the predecessor tyre – Kumho claims a 14 per cent shorter distance on wet road surfaces.
