Seoul, South Korea – NEXEN TIRE announced that it will be supplying original equipment for the third-generation X1 and the all-electric iX1 compact SUVs from BMW.
The BMW X1 and the iX1 EV both have the automaker’s distinctive features like the kidney grille, clear headlights, and body kit with a multi- or three-dimensional effect.
The N’FERA SPORT premium tire from the South Korean tire maker, equipped for the X1 and the iX1 models, was manufactured at the NEXEN TIRE Europe plant specifically for use on European road conditions. The tire’s asymmetrical patterns are excellent for high-speed driving, and its 3+1 wide groove provides exceptional drainage performance. It also performs gracefully on both dry and wet roads.
Additionally, world renowned publications like Autobild, ADAC, Motorbelt, and Ace Lenkrad tested the N’FERA SPORT tires in the summer tire product category and found them to be impactful. In fact, the tire received a “very recommendable” rating from Autobild. In terms of product design, the tire was the winner of the Red Dot Design award.
After announcing this year that its tires would be OE-compatible with the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer, NEXEN TIRE went on to supply tires for the new X1 and iX1 EV, earning the trust of premium automakers thanks to its accumulated technology and high standard of workmanship.
