One of India’s largest two and four wheeler tyre manufacturers, CEAT recently announced last week that it has entered into an agreement with the French automobile giant Renault. According to this agreement, CEAT will provide Fuelsmarrt tyres for Renault’s new offering, the Triber. The vehicle is Renault’s latest entrant in the sub-4-meter MPV segment. Earlier, CEAT did a similar partnership with the French automobile maker for the launch of its hatchback Kwid.
The company in a statement told that its Fuelsmarrt tyres have been specially customised for this car segment and will be available in 165/80 R14 tyre size. CEAT also said that these tyres have been specially designed to provide low rolling resistance for better grip and fuel efficiency. The tyres come with interlocked blocks for more stability. The low rolling resistance tyre has been specifically designed as per the industry standards for the MPV segment. Off late, the MPV segment has become extremely popular amongst families, who are looking for more space in terms of the passenger as well as cargo carrying capacity. Additionally, the driver also enjoys a comfortable less noisy experience alongside better grip in both wet and dry road conditions.
In the past few years, CEAT has landed up with some big OEM entries including domestic and international automobile players, said Amit Tolani, Vice President – Marketing, CEAT. Furthermore, he added that they are happy to offer Fuelsmarrt tyres as per Renault’s expectations. Mr. Tolani also reiterated the fact that CEAT is committed to providing a great experience to all its partners including Renault.
