GREEN PERFORMANCE, THE CHALLENGE OF 'SCORPION VERDE'

scorpion verdePirelli launches ‘Scorpion Verde’, the first ecological high performance tyre for SUVs and Crossovers, which is part of the company’s ‘Green Performance’ strategy.
Last 15 March in Barcellona Pirelli presented presented to the press and to 400 dealers from all over Europe and Japan the first tyre for high environmental impact vehicles, which embodies respect for the environment, savings, better breaking capability, grip and driving pleasure without giving up performance.
Scorpion Verde ensures an overall reduction in fuel consumption of up to 3.9% on urban roads and 3.4% on mixed routes (urban and extra-urban) and reduces acoustic emissions by a decibel, which is equal to 30% overall (that is like cancelling an entire lane of a three-lane motorway) and uses 10% less raw materials.
In addition to the powerful ecological vocation, Scorpion Verde guarantees high performance: improvement in braking, better wet grip and handling.
Scorpion Verde will be available on the replacement market from April 2010. Among the latest generation SUVs and Crossovers, Volkswagen’s Touareg has already chosen Scorpion Verde.

DOUBLE TRIUMPH FOR PIRELLI AT THE CHINA TYRE ENTERPRISE SUMMIT 2009

2009-Best-New-Tyre-of-the-Year-Award_Cinturato-P7The most prestigious prize at  the 2009 edition of the China tyre Enterprise Summit went to the Cinturato P7, voted “The Best New Tyre of the Year”. And the high performing P Zero tyre won the title of “The Best Ultra-High Performance Tyre”, thanks to its excellent performance compared to that of its competitors.  The centre of the debate of the summit, focussed on ecosustainability, energy saving and environmental protection,  was the search for new eco-compatible materials, and the introduction of new and increasingly green tyre and technologies.

Winning two such important prices demonstrates how the world of industry appreciates the policies of safety and respect for the environment that Pirelli has pursued in recent years, and which it continues to believe in, always combining respect for the environment and high performance.
