NEW YORK—Pirelli's P Zero Elect tires will be original equipment on xDrive50 and sportier M60 versions of BMW A.G.' 100-percent electric iX SUV.
The tires are available for the BMW iX xDrive50 version in 255/50R21 109Y XL and 275/40R22 107Y XL sizes. The latter size also is available for the sportier M60 version of the BMW SUV.
The tires are marked with a star on the side to indicate that they have been especially developed for BMW as part of Pirelli's 'perfect fit' philosophy, along with a 22-inch BMW iX tire, which has more grip and is made for maximum performance. This tire has an "I" on the side, in addition to the star marking, Pirelli said.
Pirelli Elect tires, including the P Zero, "distinguish themselves thanks to their supreme driving comfort with contained road noise as well as immediate grip, a long range and safety-focused design," Pirelli said.
