ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY THROUGHOUT THE RANGE
The recent revamp of the Scorpion range is designed to respond to an expanding segment, which forecasts a steady increase in global SUV sales over the next few years. These cars are characterised by a heavy kerb weight and a high centre of gravity, delivering a particular set of driving dynamics that require dedicated tyres, suitable for the latest standards of contemporary and future mobility. In addition to hitting higher targets of comfort, safety and performance, some sizes in the Scorpion family are now optimised for use with electrified SUVs. Around 30% of the range is equipped with Elect technology, a solution specially developed for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. A fact that makes Scorpion the Pirelli product range with the highest number of homologations for ‘green’ cars.
Together with Seal Inside, Run Flat, and PNCS, Elect is one of Pirelli’s specialities that characterise the most modern tyres in the range. Over a third of Scorpion tyres – in the new summer, winter and all season versions – feature these technologies, allowing comfortable and silent journeys thanks to the optional PNCS, and with added peace of mind from knowing nobody will be left on foot in case of a puncture, thanks to Pirelli’s Seal Inside and Run Flat systems. Benefitting also from these innovations, Pirelli is the leading tyre manufacturer in the European SUV segment, with a particular focus on sizes of 19 inches and higher.
SAFETY, SUSTAINABILITY, AND CERTIFIED PERFORMANCE
The three latest arrivals in the Scorpion range have been created according to a process that Pirelli calls "Eco-Safety Design". This unique approach uses innovative materials and tools, including virtual models from motorsport, to achieve ultimate performance in terms of sustainability and safety. Thanks to "Eco-Safety Design", Pirelli’s tyres are able to guarantee reliable braking and grip both on dry and wet surfaces, benefitting safety, but also delivering performance that limits environmental impact, thanks to better fuel consumption, reduced noise, and a longer tyre life. To achieve these impressive results, the range has been substantially redesigned, following research and development that has optimised the composition of the compounds, enhanced the three different tread patterns, and reinforced the structure, which is equipped with new materials.
This update across the range has allowed Pirelli to obtain the coveted TÜV SÜD Performance Mark for the Scorpion, which is only given to tyres that are among the best on the market for a wide variety of different driving situations. To help secure the supply chain, the entire Scorpion range is produced from factories within the European Union.
