Comments Email

GENEVA (Feb. 28, 2012) — Apollo Tyres Ltd. said it plans to launch an ultra-high-performance summer passenger vehicle tire, in W and Y speed ratings, at the 82nd Geneva Motor Show.

While the Vredestein brand is sold across Europe, Apollo was introduced in Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy and Netherlands last year. Given the high acceptance and success of both its summer and winter tires in the passenger vehicle and 4x4 segments, Apollo said its plans are to expand its markets into Switzerland, Austria and Denmark.

This report appeared in European Rubber Journal, a UK-based sister publication of Tire Business.
