MILAN, Italy — Pirelli & C. S.p.A. has launched the Scorpion MS, a high performance all-season tire designed as original equipment for the latest SUVs.
About three-fourths of all the Scorpion MS tires produced will be for electric and hybrid vehicles, with the tire maker's Elect technology, Pirelli said.
The product, which Pirelli said features a long tread life that suits the U.S. market and a comfortable ride that suits the Asian market, succeeds the Scorpion Verde all-season and the Scorpion Zero all-season in the Pirelli lineup. The tire has been designed for light off-road use and driving in snowy conditions.
It offers better grip in wet and dry conditions, Pirelli said, and reduces rolling resistance compared with previous tires.
