London, UK – This year’s British Motor Show held at Farnborough International was a sensation, and one of the standout moments was Bridgestone’s thrilling showcase, in collaboration with Kwik Fit. Drawing crowds by the tens of thousands, Bridgestone revealed its latest ‘EV Ready’ tyre technology. Making the occasion all the more electrifying was the presence of freestyle BMX gold medallist and Bridgestone ambassador Charlotte Worthington.
Bridgestone’s Star Tyres Take Centre Stage
Headlining Bridgestone’s product lineup was the much-anticipated Turanza 6 tyre, designed to cater to a wide range of automobiles from internal combustion engine models to hybrids and electric vehicles. The tyre boasts the company’s cutting-edge ENLITEN technology, aimed at optimising vehicle performance while readying Bridgestone’s portfolio for a greener future. In addition to the Turanza 6, other Bridgestone offerings like Potenza Sport and Potenza Race tyres also graced the spotlight.
