Toyo Launching Nanoenergy Zero Line
Toyo Tire & Rubber Co. has launched Nanoenergy Zero, its latest fuel-efficient passenger radial, and part of the tiremaker's new Nanoenergy tire line.
Available for sale in Japan as of July 2, the size 195/65R15 91H tire has “achieved the highest grade under the Japan Automotive Tire Manufacturers Association testing and labeling system, both in rolling resistance coefficient and wet grip performance.”
Nanoenergy makes use of Toyo’s Nano Balance Technology, which the tiremaker describes as a “proprietary advanced foundational material design technology, which manages the development of the tire’s rubber materials at the nano-level.”
The first in the line – Nanoenergy 1 – was introduced for sale in February. This was followed by Nanoenergy 2 in June. Both tires rated “AAA” in rolling resistance, Toyo said.
Those two tires will be launched in Europe later this year. The tiremaker offered no timetable for a North American introduction of the new tire.
