Ceat Tyres launches new range in India

11 Apr 2014 / 0

Ceat Tyres has launched two new products for the Indian market. A new Czar range marks Ceat’s entry in to the luxury tyre market, this product is offered for SUVs only. The second offering is for the premium passenger car segment and the range is called Gripp LN.

Czar HT

The Czar range is created specifically for off-road vehicles and comes in all-terrain (A/T) and highway terrain (H/T) variants. The A/T variant feels most at home on the rough and rocky paths while the H/T can handle the occasional weekend getaway and excels in highway driving conditions. The Czar has 2-D sipes which add to reliability by providing uniform wear and giving better cornering grip. Other features include sidewall and rim protectors along with a tread groove profile which protects the tyre from cuts and stone drilling.

The Gripp LN range is the latest entrant to the Ceat stable and boasts a special ‘noise reduction technology’ which enhances driving comfort and cabin quietness, by drastically cutting down the noise levels. The low noise has received European ECE 117 and IDIADA certification.  These tyres also promise wet weather performance due to wider, notched grooves which allow for better water dispersal.

Grip LN

On the occasion, Nitish Bajaj, VP-Marketing, CEAT Ltd. said, “India in the past few years has witnessed a tremendous surge in sales of ultra-premium and luxury class of vehicles. With the launch of the Czar and Gripp LN series, we would like to extend CEAT’s quality and assurance to these segments of the market. We at CEAT are committed towards enhancing the high standards in quality and continue to improve product offerings throughout 2014.”
