NOKIAN TYRES LAUNCHES A NEW PRODUCT FAMILY FOR NORTHERN CONDITIONS



In autumn 2000, Nokian Tyres is to launch a new studded car winter tyre and three new delivery van winter tyres tailored for different market areas. With the renewed winter tyre family the company aims to strengthen its position both in the Nordic countries and in Western Europe.

The new studded car winter tyre, Nokian Hakkapeliitta 2, is the first tyre to combine the grip qualities of both studded and studless tyres, which is the main innovation in the product. The Nokian Hakkapeliitta C2 is a studded delivery tyre for Nordic markets and the Nokian Hakkapeliitta CQ a Nordic friction tyre. The Nokian Hakkapeliitta CS is a winter tyre designed for Western European driving conditions.

Nokian Tyres will introduce the new products to press today and to dealers during the next two weeks in the company's test centre in Ivalo, Lapland.
