Yokohama tyres OE on new Mitsubishi Outlander

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has selected Yokohama Geolandar X-CV tyres for OE fitment on the new Outlander. The SUV will be factory-fitted with 235/60R18 103H size Yokohama tyres.

Yokohama began supplying its Geolandar X-CV tyres used on Outlander petrol models in July last year, while shipments of the tyres started in November for PHEV models.

While contributing to the Outlander’s maneuverability, the Geolandar X-CV delivers the high steering stability and sharply reduced rolling resistance that further enhance the environmental benefits of PHEVs, according to Yokohama.

In addition, the tyre maker says a newly optimised tyre pattern helps improve fuel efficiency.

Geolandar is Yokohama’s global brand of tyres for SUVs and pickups, and the company says it is accelerating the expansion of this lineup to meet the ever-increasing SUV market.

The Geolandar X-CV being supplied for Outlanders is based on the previously developed Geolandar X-CV tyre sold on the replacement tyre market.
