Tokyo – Japanese tire manufacturer Yokohama said the 84th edition of the International Auto Salon, 6-16 March, in Geneva, Switzerland was a ‘success’.
Yokohama exhibited its new winter products – the W.drive V905 and the iceGuard stud iG55 as well as the BluEarth-A, which delivers a “high degree of wet grip, drivability and exceptional fuel efficiency”.
Also presented during Geneva was the BluEarth-1 EF20 which is its new generation of the BluEarth flagship tire as well as the new “ADVAN” racing tire for the forthcoming FIA WTCC Season.
Its concept car, AERO-Y, was on show with its “fin tyres” – designed to reduce the vehicle’s air drag by controlling the airflow in the wheel well. This Electric Vehicle also has an ultra-lightweight yet high-strength body created from materials developed by Yokohama for use in aircraft components. Additionally the car boasts an adhesive technology that stems from the development of HAMATITE adhesives and enables the creation of composites from hard-to-bond dissimilar materials.
