"Developing high-performance tyres for a dynamic BEV like the Lotus Eletre we had to raise the technological level, to identify new solutions that meet the needs of a market that is experiencing a real revolution, faster and more challenging than ever before. As with cars, tyres are also changing in many more ways than might appear. For us it is essential to work alongside prestige car manufacturers, such as Lotus, because it allows us to imagine and then carry out this evolution together."
Dario Marrafuschi, Head of Product Pirelli.
"During the last months we did an intensive testing on challenging tracks such as the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife and the Pirelli team did a great job to develop tyres with the absolutely right performance for our new all electric and very dynamic vehicle."
Dr. Flavio Friesen, Senior Chief Engineer of Vehicle Integration of Lotus Tech Innovation Centre, Deputy General Manager of Lotus Tech Research Institute.
