Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd. has announced that Falken has been selected as an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for the sixth-generation Volkswagen Polo, a vehicle sold in Europe and globally but not yet in the United States. Falken will supply its premium tire models Azenis FK453, Sincera 832A Ecorun, Ziex ZE914A Ecorun and winter tire, Eurowinter HS449, for factory fitting.
“The range and attributes of our tires complement the broad requirements of the VW Polo. From tires for drivers seeking a sporting ride through to tires for drivers whose priorities are energy efficiency and mileage, we will deliver tires to suit every application,” comments Christian Stolting, key account manager OE at Falken Tyre Europe. “We offer an extensive portfolio of tires that regularly convince independent testing organizations as well as being praised by drivers themselves and we are naturally delighted to hear that this has been underlined by VW. We see the decision as confirmation of our consistent high performance in both development and production.”
