The “Audi Q8” is a next-generation premium SUV that has prominently sporty styling and a high-performance, high-efficiency power unit equipped with a mild hybrid system. As a flagship model of the Audi brand, the premium SUV demonstrates the unrestrained performance necessary in North America, and demanded high-quality, highly versatile all-season tires to enjoy driving on roads in various weather conditions.
Toyo Tire & Rubber’s “TOYO CELSIUS CUV A” was developed based on the “TOYO CELSIUS CUV,” an all-season tire for SUVs that we have rolled out in the North American market. It achieves Audi’s required performance at a high level by applying all types of tuning for the Audi Q8 OE as a premium SUV.
Toyo Tire & Rubber’s tires are already used on many Audi vehicles as tires for new cars. We will continue to strive toward developing products and improving on technology that achieves versatile performance.
