OE Contract For Volkswagen Polo

Kumho Tyre is to supply the ecowing es01 KH27 to Volkswagen-Navarra S.A for fitment to Polo models built at its plant in Pamplona, Spain. The tyre size is 185/60R15 84H.

A ‘green’ tyre with notably impressive label ratings, the es01 delivers low rolling resistance for optimised fuel efficiency and features enhanced wet grip technology combined with excellent resistance to aquaplaning.

A recipient of the prestigious Red Dot Design Award in 2013, the es01  has also fared well in tyre comparison tests such as the renowned summer product one organised annually by the Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club e.V. (ADAC).

The new Polo contract is one of the first fruits of work done by Kumho’s European Technical Centre (KETC) since it moved to Mörfelden-Walldorf in Germany and expanded its staff of first-class engineers and test drivers.
