Toyota assigns Yokohama as OE for Prius.
Yokohama tyres have been approved as an original equipment fitment on the latest version of the Toyota Prius. According to Yokohama Rubber, the BluEarth E70 will be supplied in size 215/45R17 87W for the Prius models sold in Europe, Japan and Oceania, while North American Prius models will get the BluEarth S34 all-season tyre in size P215/45R17 87V. The Yokohama Aspec A349 has been approved for original equipment fitment in markets outside these regions, and will be delivered to Toyota Motor Corporation in size 195/65R15 91H.
The new Prius was launched in Japan last December ahead of its debut in global markets, and several brands of tyre have already been homologated as original equipment fitments. Sumitomo Rubber Industries announced the approval of its Dunlop Enasave EC300+ at the time of the Toyota hybrid’s release, and it is supplying this tyre in the Japanese market in size 195/65R15 91S.
