Bridgestone launches Ecopia tyres

  • Posted on Wednesday 29th, May 2013.

Bridgestone Australia has launched a new low rolling resistance truck tyre called Ecopia.

According to the Japanese tyre expert, the Ecopia range has the potential to help fleet operators achieve fuel savings of up to six per cent.

“The savings we are talking about in terms of the fuel spend for major fleets are extremely significant,” said Andrew Moffatt, Managing Director for Bridgestone Australia, pointing out the new tyres represented “a huge advantage” for fleet operators.

“For example, a fleet that spends $23 million on fuel and $2.3 million on tyres per year could save up to $1 million a year based on the total fuel and tyre cost of using Bridgestone Ecopia drive and trailer tyres.

“The benefits continue when the Ecopia casings are used with Bandag low rolling resistance retreads.”
