These tyres will now undergo extensive road evaluation under typical operating conditions. This development is aligned with the sustainability journey of Apollo Tyres and the goal of achieving the 40% sustainable material target by 2030, and of being carbon neutral by 2050. Our team continues to showcase innovation and commitment to building a sustainable future.”
