New Toyo Versado Eco Combines Luxury Performance with a Green Attitude

CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA – The new Versado Eco by Toyo Tires is an all-season, low rolling resistance luxury performance tire designed for hybrids and other environmentally-friendly vehicles. Using a combination of innovative technology and materials friendly to the environment, the Versado Eco delivers low rolling resistance without sacrificing tread life, luxury or performance.

Part of a global initiative to bring together both technology and ecology, the Versado Eco features progressive compound components and recycled materials. Rolling resistance is reduced by high silica content in the tread compound along with highly reactive polymer and a naturally derived material that the company calls Green Powder. The Green Powder and highly reactive polymer improve the dispersion of the silica, reducing friction and lowering rolling resistance.

In addition, the long tread life and smooth, comfortable ride are achieved using advanced compound, construction and design elements such as an optimized tread profile and Toyo Tires’ Silent Wall Technology.
The Versado Eco is available to fit wheels from 15- to 18-inches in diameter, and is ideal as an OE tire upgrade for environmentally-friendly vehicles such as: Toyota® Prius®, Toyota Camry® Hybrid, Lexus® HS250h and CT200h, Honda Civic® Hybrid, Honda Insight® and the Chevrolet® Malibu® Hybrid. An “E” ecology mark on its lower sidewall denotes that it puts a focus on improved fuel economy.
