Bridgestone launches Turanza EV-ready tyres

Bridgestone has launched its EV-ready Turanza All Season 6 ENLITEN tyres with DriveGuard run-flat technology.

Bridgestone said on June 6 the latest addition to its portfolio allows drivers to maintain control of their vehicles and travel safely after a puncture for 80km at up to 80km/h.

Stefano Sanchini, VP  for consumer replacement Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said the single set of tyres performs in all seasons.

Testing and certification organisation TÜV SÜD said the tyres also offer best-in-class wet braking and excellent braking performance in dry and snowy conditions, according to Bridgestone.

In addition, the tyre also provides 20% better mileage than its predecessor for cost efficiency and reduced environmental impact.

Bridgestone said the integration of its ENLITEN tech provides maximum safety and outstanding performance for drivers, while improving the sustainability characteristics of the tyre and making it fully EV-ready, as well as meeting the general performance demands of any vehicle.

Turanza All Season 6 ENLITEN will be available in 20 top selling sizes from 16 to 19 inches. Beginning in September 2024, 18 sizes will be available and the remaining two sizes will be released in January 2025.
