FALKEN “ZIEX ZE310A ECORUN” Selected as Factory Standard Tires for the New NISSAN X-Trail

Aug 23, 2022

Falken is pleased to announce that we have begun supplying our high-performance FALKEN “ZIEX ZE310A ECORUN” tires to NISSAN Motor Corporation for use as factory standard tires on their latest model X-Trail, which launched in July 2022.

This latest model retains the “Tough Gear” concept that has formed a major part of X-Trail’s DNA since the series made its debut while also combining this toughness with a whole-new level of refinement. The new X-Trail features a more advanced second-generation “e-POWER” system equipped with a high-power electric motor, as well as NISSAN’s own “VC-Turbo,” the world’s first mass-produced variable compression ratio engine. These technologies come together to provide a powerful yet smooth drive along with an unmatched level of quiet. On top of that, the new X-Trail also features “e-4ORCE” four-wheel electric motor drive system technology, putting it at the leading edge of NISSAN’s overall strategy for transitioning to electric vehicles.

Meanwhile, FALKEN “ZIEX ZE310A ECORUN” is an on-road SUV tire designed to meet the demands of the latest X-Trail when it comes to providing outstanding drive performance alongside refined ride comfort. These tires also achieve exceptional fuel efficiency thanks to the adoption of a tread pattern that ensures consistent contact pressure for lower rolling resistance as well as a lightweight design for greater all-around environmental friendliness.
