The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - News -

BRIDGE­STONE in Malaysia has up­dated its line of eco-tyres for pas­sen­ger cars with Ecopia EP300 which boasts bet­ter fuel ef­fi­ciency, su­pe­rior wet grip per­for­mance and longer ser­vice life.

The tyre is avail­able in 13 dif­fer­ent sizes for 15-inch, 16-inch and 17-inch wheels. Prices start from RM180 to RM450 ex­clu­sive of GST.

Bridge­stone Tyre Sales (Malaysia) man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Jo Takekawa said that the Ecopia EP300 was de­signed pri­mar­ily to meet cus­tomers’ ex­pec­ta­tion.

“At Bridge­stone we have over 20 years of ex­pe­ri­ence and tech­ni­cal know-how in de­vel­op­ing eco ori­ented prod­ucts.

The Ecopia EP300 is the re­sult of that and most im­por­tantly, lis­ten­ing to the needs of our cus­tomers for a tyre that of­fers bet­ter fuel sav­ings,” said Takekawa.

The EP300, com­pared to its pre­de­ces­sor the EP200 which was launched four years ago, has in­cor­po­rated a new de­sign and new tech­nolo­gies for low rolling re­sis­tance and added fuel ef­fi­ciency.

Bridge­stone claims the EP300 can fur­ther sav­ings as it can travel an ad­di­tional 11.2km per full tank.

It fea­tures an en­hanced NanoProTech with a new poly­mer that pro­vides en­hanced wet grip while the new tread pat­tern con­trib­utes to anti-hy­droplan­ing per­for­mance, bet­ter han­dling and re­duced noise.

The EP300’s new tread de­sign also bet­ter con­trols tyre de­for­ma­tion and pro­vides long-last­ing tyre life through a uni­form wear pat­tern. RIZAL JOHAN
