Goodyear OE on BMW iX

BMW has selected Goodyear tyres as an OE-fitment option for its new iX electric SUV. The EfficientGrip Performance 2 is amongst the Goodyear tyres selected by the German manufacturer for its new vehicle.

Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 offers drivers short braking distances on dry and wet roads, along with involving handling and grip in varied conditions.

Just like the BMW iX, the EfficientGrip Performance 2 is designed to maximise range and is capable of 20 per cent higher mileage than the next best tested competitor, as per a 2019 TÜV SÜD test report. It also offers 50 per cent more range than its predecessor, according to Goodyear.

The EfficientGrip Performance 2 is available in 20 and 21-inch fitments for the iX, while the same sizes are covered by Goodyear’s winter tyre range with UltraGrip Performance+ (20 and 21-inch). Goodyear’s UltraGrip Performance+ carries the 3 Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMSF) label, which designates its performance on snow.

Hans Vrijsen, managing director consumer OE, Goodyear EMEA said: “We are pleased that the BMW iX has become the latest fully electric car to have Goodyear tyres as original equipment. EfficientGrip Performance 2 is designed with electric vehicles in mind, due to its superb efficiency and low rolling resistance, while maintaining a high level of performance. With winter tyre fitments of Goodyear UltraGrip Performance+, BMW iX drivers are covered no matter the weather.”
