Nexen Tire has announced that it will be supplying original equipment for the third-generation X1 and the all-electric iX1 compact SUVs from BMW.
The BMW X1 and the iX1 EV both have the automaker’s distinctive features like the kidney grille, clear headlights, and body kit with a multi- or three-dimensional effect.
The N’fera Sport premium tyre, equipped for the X1 and the iX1 models, was manufactured at the Nexen Tire Europe plant specifically for use on European road conditions. The tyre's asymmetrical patterns are excellent for high-speed driving, and its 3+1 wide groove provides exceptional drainage performance. It also performs gracefully on both dry and wet roads.
Additionally, world renowned publications like Autobild, ADAC, Motorbelt, and Ace Lenkrad tested the N'fera Sport tyres in the summer tyre product category and found them to be impactful. In fact, the tyre received a "very recommendable" rating from Autobild. In terms of product design, the tyre was the winner of the Red Dot Design award.
After announcing this year that its tyres would be OE-compatible with the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer, Nexen Tire went on to supply tyres for the new X1 and iX1 EV, earning the trust of premium automakers thanks to its accumulated technology and high standard of workmanship.
