SEOUL, South Korea, Aug. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NEXEN TIRE, a leading global tire manufacturer, announced its OEM approval for the latest model of the Tonale from the Italian car maker Alpha Romeo.

The Tonale is the first electric SUV from the Alfa Romeo brand, which offers mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid models in addition to conventional internal combustion engines. It has applied headlights and front grills with an inverted triangle shape, which can be considered to be an exclusive Alpha Romeo design. It also has a distinctive tire wheel with the brand’s classic 5-spoke circular design.

The N’FERA Primus is manufactured at NEXEN TIRE’s European facility in the Czech Republic and is supplied as tires for new cars. It boasts excellent drainage performance and stable driving performance even at a top speed of 300 km/h.

Additionally, a wide groove of 3+1 offers excellent drainage performance to prevent hydroplaning even at high speeds, and user convenience is taken into account.

Moreover, the three strong tread ribs provide stability for driving with instant handling, and through transverse grooves, they achieved excellent braking performance on both dry and wet surfaces, earning them the top prize at the German IF Design Awards, one of the top three design competitions in the world.
