Pirelli 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.
Scorpion Verde is mobile: Pirelli has devoted an entire section of the mobile Tyre site to Scorpion Verde, where users will find a range of multi-media content
