Vredestein has been selected to supply tires for the Volkswagen Polo, SEAT Ibiza and Ford EcoSport – representing significant growth in the company’s OE fitment portfolio.

“I would like to congratulate my team, which has been working relentlessly toward gaining OE approvals in Europe,” said Neeraj Kanwar, vice chairman and MD, Apollo Tyres.

“By entering the supply chains of world-leading car makers such as Volkswagen, Ford and SEAT, Apollo Tyres has embarked on a very important journey with European OEMs. While these are the first ones, there are several other OE approvals in the pipeline for our passenger car tires.”

Vredestein is to equip the VW Polo with Snowtrac 5 tires, Sportrac 5 and Quatrac 5 rubber; the SEAT Ibiza will also be factory fitted with the Sportrac 5 and Quatrac 5; and the Ford Ecosport will be fitted with Sportrac 5s.
