Vredestein Pinza AT marks Apollo Tyres Ltd’s foray into the dedicated North American pickup truck and SUV segment for the storied European tyre brand. After launching the Vredestein brand across North America in September 2020, Apollo Tyres took its message to the ‘Crossroads of the World’, New York’s Times Square in the form of a billboard for the Vredestein Pinza, that was seen by thousands.
“When we brought the Vredestein brand to North America a little over a year ago, we introduced a range of passenger car tyres that were developed specifically for the unique needs of drivers in this market,” said Abhishek Bisht, Asst Vice President, Americas, Apollo Tyres Ltd. “In the year since, we have been lauded by customers, media and independent testing authorities for the quality, value and performance of our products. Our expansion into the all-terrain category with the comfortably rugged Vredestein Pinza AT is a moment worthy of celebration, and Times Square is the perfect venue for this.”
Development of the all-new Vredestein Pinza AT followed the same philosophy that resulted in the acclaimed and awarded line-up of Vredestein passenger car tyres. Intensive study into pickup and SUV drivers’ habits and requirements have helped our Global R&D Centres in Europe and Asia to develop and deliver a uniquely capable, yet comfortable all-terrain tyre that was tested in different climates and weather conditions on 3 different continents.
“The Vredestein Pinza AT represents a bold evolution of the Vredestein brand,” said Bisht. “Its arrival demonstrates our unwavering commitment to meeting the drivers’ needs and ensuring that they have carefully though-out and expertly engineered solutions, no matter what they drive or where they drive it. We welcome the opportunity to serve light truck and SUV owners here in North America with the high level of products and support that our reputation is built on.”
The Italian origins of the Vredestein Pinza moniker evoke thoughts of power, precision, strength and grip. The Vredestein Pinza AT tyre embodies this etymology, and is engineered to deliver the best of both worlds for demanding pickup trucks and SUV drivers. Pinza’s aggressive design belies its quiet, confident on-road performance in all weather conditions, while simultaneously telegraphing the extreme capability and durability that’s required when drivers venture off-road.
