Yokohama’s BluEarth selected for new Subaru XV
Yokohama Rubber has announced it is supplying its BluEarth E70 in size 225/60R17 99H to Subaru as original equipment for the new Subaru XV. Subaru launched the new crossover model in Japan this month with subsequent rollouts planned worldwide.
In Japan, the sporty XV is also equipped with Yokohama Rubber’s emergency flat-tyre repair kit. The BluEarth E70 summer tyre for passenger cars features a safe, comfortable ride while enhancing the vehicle’s fuel efficiency, Yokohama said. The all-new Subaru XV crossover SUV combines a stylish urban design while offering enhanced drivability in the toughest conditions and superior safety. The vehicle is built on Subaru’s global platform, which greatly enhances vehicle safety and driving performance, according to Yokohama.
Yokohama Rubber’s BluEarth tyres have been adopted by automakers as original equipment mostly on new eco car and hybrid vehicles.
