Bridgestone has positioned its new Ecopia EP300 as its next-generation eco-tyre that offers low rolling resistance and superior wet grip performance, while boosting an extended wear life. Through the innovative design concept and engineering solutions adopted, EP300 is said to redefine the concept of an eco-tyre, which is embodied in its tagline, “When You Want It All”.
According to the Japanese tyre giant, the EP300 has been tested and proven to achieve significant fuel savings of up to 2 litres for every full tank of fuel compared with conventional tyres. In tests comparing EP300 to the EP200, the results demonstrate that the new technologies and design concept adopted for EP300 helped to achieve improved fuel savings, while offering drivers additional travelling distance of up to 11.2 km per tank with superior wet grip performance for a safer drive on wet asphalt. All the tests were conducted using a 2-litre Toyota Camry.
EP300’s low rolling resistance brings fuel efficiency to the next level. This contributes to daily fuel savings and less CO2 emissions, reducing the vehicle’s environmental footprint. Compared to earlier Ecopia tyres, EP300 offers even further savings by travelling up to an additional 11.2km per full tank.
The EP300 features enhanced NanoPro-Tech with a new polymer that provides enhanced wet grip due to an increased contact area that grips wet road surfaces with higher frictional force at the micro-level. In addition, the new tread pattern contributes to anti-hydroplaning performance, better handling and reduced noise.
The EP300’s deeper lug depth on the tyre shoulder is designed to strengthen durability and increase wear resistance. The tyre also features new tread design to better control tyre deformation and provide long-lasting tyre life through a uniform wear pattern.
The new Ecopia EP300 is now available in 21 different sizes at authorised Bridgestone dealers in Singapore.
