Re­nault into rub­ber

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Motorsport -

FEW car com­pa­nies get around to rolling out their own tyres but Re­nault says it makes strong busi­ness sense. It has launched its Motrio brand of af­ter-mar­ket prod­ucts, in­clud­ing tyres, in the UK and plans to spread the parts around the world. Re­nault’s Motrio range is made by Con­ti­nen­tal and — sur­pris­ingly — won’t be fit­ted to its new cars. Rather, it will be an af­ter-mar­ket of­fer­ing to re­place worn tyres and de­signed to main­tain the car’s ini­tial ride and han­dling char­ac­ter­is­tics, Re­nault says. The Motrio range also in­cludes bat­ter­ies, brakes, ser­vic­ing parts, en­gine oil, an­tifreeze and wiper blades.
