Nexen Tire announced that it has started supplying Original Equipment (OE) tires for the first time from its European manufacturing plant in the Czech Republic, the first recipient being the fourth-generation Hyundai Tucson.
Nexen Tire’s Czech manufacturing plant located in Žatec has seen operations stabilize despite the current COVID-19 pandemic, and the supply of N’FERA Primus as OE tires marks a historic milestone since the plant’s opening in 2019.
N’FERA Primus is a premium ultra-high-performance tire that boasts outstanding braking performance, excellent drainage, and advanced handling to present a stable driving experience.
Nexen Tire has been supplying OE tires to global automakers since 2012, including Volkswagen last year and Audi and other top-tier carmakers this year.
The company’s plant in Žatec is strategically located in the heart of Europe, allowing it to meet rising demands in the region. It also gives the company access to around 30 carmakers located within a 400 km radius.
With the stabilization of its European production, Nexen Tire will continue to increase its presence in the market by expanding the supply of OE tires for new cars.
The N’FERA Primus will be fitted in sizes 215/65R17, 235/55R18, and 235/50R19 to the fourth-generation Hyundai Tucson sold in the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America.
