The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., has announced that it is supplying its Advan V51 tyres as original equipment (OE) to Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., for use on the automaker’s Elgrand MPV, which was recently launched with some specification enhancements. The MPV is being fitted with 225/55R18 98V size tyres.
The Advan V51 is a high-performance tyre in Yokahama’s global flagship Advan brand. The tyres being supplied feature a high level of quietness that befits the Elgrand, achieved by applying specialised tuning to their tread pattern and compound. In addition, their high structural rigidity can demonstrate exceptional steering stability.
The Elgrand is a premium minivan with a spacious interior that includes features similar to those in a luxury sedan. It comes with advanced safety technologies, such as Nissan Safety Assist 360, a multidirectional drive support system that includes an intelligent emergency braking function and a system prevents collisions in the event of the driver accidentally stepping on the gas pedal. The MPV also features excellent handling stability achieved by a low centre of gravity platform and the stable driving performance that has been highly evaluated by owners of previous Elgrand models for many years.
