FSC-certified Pirelli Tyres on display for the first time
The world’s leading carmakers at the 2021 International IAA Mobility Show in Munich have chosen Pirelli tyres for their most sustainable cars.
Nearly one in three electric cars (29%) at the show and on the road in Munich use Pirelli P Zero or Scorpion tyres, the tyre manufacturer said in a press communiqué.
P Zero tyres with Elect markings are Ultra High Performance (UHP) tyres that combines Pirelli’s experience in motorsport with Elect; technology, chosen to equip Porsche, Ford, BMW and Mercedes-Benz models in Munich.
Pirelli Elect tyres are characterised by a package of specific technologies for electric and plug-in hybrid cars: low rolling resistance to increase range, decreased road noise to improve comfort, immediate grip to deal with instant torque, and the right structure to support the weight of a battery-powered vehicle.
The world’s first Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified tyres on show for the first time, the Pirelli P Zero tyres which contain FSC-certified natural rubber and rayon.
The complex FSC chain of custody certification process verifies that FSC-certified material has been identified and separated from non-certified material as it makes its way along the supply chain, from the plantations to the tyre manufacturer.
