Selecting a new tire can be challenging, especially when living with seasonal conditions. I have been driving on the Vredestein Quatrac Pro all weather tires with my Volvo S90 Inscription and V60 Cross Country for more than 10,000 miles. The tires perform well on dry, wet and cold, light snow-covered surfaces. For Volvo owners seeking increased tire performance while maintaining all-season flexibility, consider Vredestein's new Hypertrac Ultra High Performance (UHP) tire launching in North America.

The tire design was developed to address North America's diverse vehicle preferences, regional climates, and driving habits. Vredestein invested more than $30 million in research and development for new products tailored specifically to the North America. The all-new Vredestein Hypertrac is a direct result of that investment and the first of new tire lines that will follow through 2020 and beyond.

"Today's vehicle owners place a higher premium on versatile performance than ever before and are looking for supreme confidence across a wide range of road surfaces, conditions and climates," said Abhishek Bisht, Assistant Vice President, Americas at Apollo Tyres Ltd., Vredestein's parent company.

"Hypertrac is a successful validation of Vredestein's research, testing and high-tech manufacturing capabilities," said Daniele Lorenzetti, chief technology officer at Apollo Tyres. "Our global expertise, combined with a local focus on the North American market, has delivered a tire that we believe sets new standards for the all-season UHP category."

"Hypertrac represents the next-generation of Vredestein technology and has been engineered with the specific needs of North American consumers in mind," said Bisht. "We are proud of this extraordinary new product, and we firmly believe it will transform how drivers view ultra-high performance tires. Hypertrac delivers in all seasons, with no compromises, and it sets the tone for the standards of quality, capability, and performance we are bringing to North America with all our new tire lines."
