Mitsubishi Outlandar has selected Geolandar X-CV G99B as OE tyres.
The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., announced that it is now supplying its Geolandar X-CV G99B as original equipment (OE) for Mitsubishi Motors Corporation’s new Outlander SUVs. Yokohama Rubber began supplying the Geolandar X-CV tyres used on Outlander gasoline models sold overseas in July 2021, and shipments of the tyres for PHEV models to be introduced in Japan, Australia and other countries began in November this year. The SUVs are being fitted with 235/60R18 103H size tyres.
While contributing to the Outlander's maneuverability, the Geolandar X-CV G99B tyres deliver the high steering stability and sharply reduced rolling resistance that further enhance the environmental benefits of PHEVs. In addition, a newly optimised tyre pattern helps improve fuel efficiency.
Geolandar is Yokohama Rubber's global brand of tyres for SUVs and pickup trucks, and the Company is accelerating the expansion of the brand's line-up to meet increasingly diversified needs in the 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. The Geolandar X-CV represents a new dimension in highway terrain tyres developed for high-performance crossover SUVs that have increasingly focused on high-speed performance and maneuverability in recent years.
