Goodyear has introduced a new summer tyre to its light commercial vehicle range, bringing a targeted solution for fleets.
The successor to the EfficientGrip Cargo, the EfficientGrip Cargo 2 offers greater tread durability as well as improved wet performance.
The developments are thanks to a new compound that makes the tyre’s tread more resistant to high temperatures and harsh road conditions; it’s said to result in a 38% overall increase in tread durability versus its predecessor.
A new traction resin also helps the compound to deform during wet braking manoeuvres, resulting in higher braking efficiency, shortening wet braking distance by 8% compared to its predecessor.
It’s also suitable for electric vehicles.
“The EfficientGrip Cargo 2 is a new summer tyre that responds to the needs of consumers in the rapidly growing light commercial vehicle segment,” said Piotr Nagalski, director of marketing for Goodyear Europe.
It’s available in a line-up of 23 SKUs from 14-inch to 17-inch tyres, which will be introduced by October 2021.
Goodyear’s light truck vehicle product portfolio also includes the UltraGrip Cargo winter tyre and the Vector 4Seasons Cargo all-season tyre.
