Bridgestone's Ecopia EP500 is an eco-friendly summer touring tire initially developed for drivers of the BMW i3 and i8 electric cars.
- Designed to offer significant improvements in rolling resistance
- A long contact patch improves grip
- Original equipment for the BMW i3
Ecopia EP500 tires are designed to offer significant improvements in rolling resistance over standard-size tires.
This is the first road tire with Bridgestone's ologic technology, which combines a large tire diameter with a narrow tread to reduce friction and resistance. This is intended to improve vehicle range and help electric vehicle owners maintain a sporty ride.
Unfortunately, they are not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, snow or ice.
With its unique appearance, the Ecopia EP500 tire features a summer tread compound molded into an asymmetrical four-rib tread with a long contact patch that promotes dry and wet traction.
Its wide outer shoulder blocks supported by three serrated circular ribs improve dry traction and braking distances.
The Bridgestone ECOPIA EP500 is the tire that will help you save fuel in the summer. From its overall efficiency and reliable performance to its excellent handling and smooth ride, it's sure to win you over.
