Apollo Tyres’ European subsidiary, Vredestein, has announced that it is supplying original equipment tyres for the Volkswagen Polo, SEAT Ibiza and Ford EcoSport. The Vredestein Snowtrac 5 winter tyre and Sportrac 5 summer tyre or Quatrac 5 all-season tyre have been selected for the Volkswagen Polo.
The range for the SEAT Ibiza will consist of the Sportrac 5 and the Quatrac 5, while the Ford Ecosport will be fitted with the Sportrac5. Neeraj Kanwar, vice chairman and managing director of Apollo Tyres, said: “By entering the supply chains of world-leading carmakers such as Volkswagen, Ford and SEAT, Apollo Tyres has embarked on a very important journey with European OEMs.
While these are the first ones, there are several other OE approvals in the pipeline for our passenger car tyres. Such OE approvals are a testimony of our high-quality products and our focus on superior design.” Apollo said its manufacturing facility in the Netherlands and its new facility in Hungary will contribute to the acceleration of its OE fitments in Europe.
