Giti Tire electrifies with VW ID. Buzz OE fitment
It’s true, we are literally buzzing to announce we have secured our first European electric vehicle (EV) OE fitment on the award-winning VW ID. Buzz, with the GitiSynergyH2 being specified in 235/60 R18 on the front and 255/55 R18 on the rear axles.
Just named as Overall Winner and Best Large Electric Car at the prestigious What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2023, the VW ID. Buzz is being produced in Hannover near our very own European Research & Development Centre, where the tyre was designed.
The AAA-rated tyres utilise a new generation of tread compound which was developed to solve the technical development challenges of achieving significantly reduced rolling resistance without compromising on wear and the key safety elements of wet and dry braking and handling.
All performance parameters are further fulfilled through an optimised profile and tyre contour.
Stefan Fischer said: “Every OE fitment is a cause for celebration as every member of the team is involved in creating a truly special tyre, but to secure our first EV fitment on one of VW’s most iconic vehicles is a major milestone.
“Like every manufacturer we know that electric vehicles are the future and for years we have been developing tyres made for current and future models, the fitment underscores our work-to-date and we will continue to push the boundaries of tyre development going forwards.”
“We have a great relationship with the Volkswagen Group that has been forged by several OE fitments across some of their leading badges, because we are a trusted partner with proven tyre performance and production standards,” added Nicolas Kluson.
“The GitiSynergyH2 fitment on the VW ID. Buzz gives us a further platform to build our OE operations with VW, and the news of this fitting will undoubtedly open doors with other leading vehicle manufacturers throughout Europe.”
