Nokian Tyres press release No. 420 English Europe page


New AA-rated premium summer tyre for Central European drivers
Nokian eLine 2 class AA summer tyre - Advanced safety and greener mobility
The new AA-rated Nokian eLine 2 summer tyre ensures the best possible class A in the EU tyre label’s wet grip and fuel efficiency categories. The premium summer tyre from Nokian Tyres, the world’s northernmost tyre manufacturer, offers reliable top performance under all weather conditions. On the road, this can mean a braking distance that is up to 18 metres shorter on wet roads and fuel consumption that is 0.6 l/100 km lower.
The precise driving feel and optimal comfort can be felt and seen from the first moments of spring until late autumn. A unique innovation, Nokian Tyres Coanda Technology, guides and accelerates the removal of water from between the tyre and the road, thus effectively preventing aquaplaning. The next-generation Driving Safety Indicator improves safety.
The Nokian eLine 2 summer tyre utilises the most modern technology in the industry. It was developed for Central European drivers who want to enjoy a safer, greener future today. The growing size selection has a total of 5 state-of-the-art products in sizes of 15” and 16” that suit medium-sized cars. The speed ratings are H (210 km/h) and W (270 km/h). The new premium product will be available to consumers in the spring of 2016.
As multiple test winner, the inventor of the winter tyre, world record holder and innovation leader Nokian Tyres from Finland offers the safest tyres.
Shorter braking distance, lower fuel consumption


Nokian Tyres is known for its high-quality, safe and eco-friendly products that are carefully tailored for different demanding purposes. The excellent test success of the summer tyres from the world’s northernmost tyre manufacturer is the result of relentless, long-term development. Over half of the product development resources are spent on testing products.


As a result of nearly four years of development and extensive field testing in Germany, Finland and Spain, the Nokian eLine 2 premium summer tyre has commendable safety and handling characteristics. The tyre’s wet grip and fuel efficiency classification, according to the EU tyre label, are among the best in the industry, in class A.
On a wet road, the braking distance of the new Nokian eLine 2 from a speed of 80 km/h is up to 18 metres, or four car lengths, shorter than that of a weak summer tyre. (Difference between classes A and F in the EU tyre label). For drivers who favour green values and extremely low fuel consumption, the Nokian eLine 2 offers savings of up to 0.6 litres per 100 km (difference between classes A and G).
“Combining absolutely reliable safety characteristics and the green values favoured by the consumers in the same tyre is the largest challenge for tyre manufacturers. The balanced nature of the Nokian eLine 2 is made possible by the new, eco-friendly structural and material solutions. Precise handling under extreme conditions is combined with lightly rolling driving comfort,” Product Development Manager Jarno Ahvenlammi from Nokian Tyres summarises.
Advanced structure and tread pattern solutions
The Nokian eLine 2 masters all the forms of summer. It is built around sustainable safety and eco-friendly driving, both of which are supported by the structure, tread pattern and rubber compound solutions from the master of extreme conditions. The same advanced technology will also be utilised in Nokian Tyres’ other summer tyres in the future.
The unique characteristics of this stylish new introduction were fine-tuned using several innovations that promote safe and comfortable driving and a tailored rubber compound.
The molecular chains of the next-generation functional Nokian eLine 2 Silica tread compound bond with the silica particles to form a strong but flexible combination. The rubber compound is exemplary across a wide temperature range and it improves wet grip and reduces rolling resistance, thereby essentially reducing fuel consumption and lowering hazardous emissions.
Effectively prevents aquaplaning - Nokian Tyres Coanda Technology
The real safety characteristics and resources of a summer tyre are measured in centimetres and seconds on a wet road. The precise steering and excellent grip of the Nokian eLine 2 during lane changes and evasions provide additional peace of mind for drivers.
The Nokian Tyres Coanda Technology accelerates the removal of water from the longitudinal groove and effectively prevents aquaplaning. The curved, ramp-like design of the tread blocks on the inner shoulder guides and accelerates the flow of water from the longitudinal groove into the transverse groove. The Coanda effect denotes the tendency of flow to turn towards a nearby surface. The Coanda effect is also utilised to improve the aerodynamics of aeroplane wings and Formula 1 cars.
The Trumpet Grooves on the shoulder areas also store water and accelerate its removal from the transverse grooves; this ensures double efficiency against aquaplaning. The excellent aquaplaning prevention properties are retained even as the tyre wears down.
Maximising comfort – Silent Sidewall Technology
The Silent Sidewall Technology maximises driving comfort. The tailored special rubber compound between the sidewall and tread actively filters the sound and steel belt package vibration originating from the driving surface, preventing the passage of harmful sound waves through the sidewall into the rim and further into the passenger compartment. This innovation significantly reduces the noise level inside the vehicle.
The familiar Silent Groove Design innovation is also used to control the interior and exterior noise of the vehicle. The semi-circular indentations on the longitudinal ribs also reduce air resistance, which results in lower fuel consumption and increases the range of the vehicle.
Simple safety – Next-generation Driving Safety Indicator
Tyres that are in good condition can substantially reduce the risk of aquaplaning. In order to allow drivers to better monitor the tread depth of their tyres, Nokian Tyres developed an ingenious innovation that improves safety: the Driving Safety Indicator and the aquaplaning indicator.
The next-generation Driving Safety Indicator on the centre rib indicates tread depth. You can check the amount of remaining tread in millimetres by examining the row of numbers on the tread. The numbers and water drop symbol indicating a risk of aquaplaning disappear, as the tyre wears down. When the tread depth is below 4 mm, a red stripe that indicates low tread depth will appear around the tyre. When this happens, please purchase new summer tyres in order to ensure maximum safety.
Northproof by Nokian Tyres
Nokian Tyres is the only tyre manufacturer in the world that focuses on products and services that facilitate safe transportation in northern conditions. The company’s innovative passenger car, truck and heavy duty machinery tyres are mainly marketed in areas that have snow, forest and changing seasons that make driving conditions demanding.
Nokian Tyres' state-of-the-art product development is based on know-how from over 80 years in the business, determined testing, and a continuous search for better solutions. The company developed and manufactured the world’s first winter tyre for the winter frost in 1934. Summer tyre production begun already two years earlier in 1932. In the autumn of 2015 Nokian Tyres offered European drivers the world’s first winter tyre that achieved the best possible class A in wet grip and fuel efficiency of the EU tyre label.
The new Nokian eLine 2 – Ultimate green safety
Ultimate control on wet road

Unique green motoring, fuel savings of up to 0.6 litres per 100 km

Premium driving comfort at any speed
Main innovations:
Nokian Tyres Coanda Technology. Effective aquaplaning prevention. The curved, ramp-like design of the tread blocks on the inner shoulder guides and accelerates the flow of water from the longitudinal grooves into the transverse grooves. The excellent aquaplaning prevention properties are retained even as the tyre wears down. There is also a flow-optimized support between the tread blocks that reduces the movement between them. The support improves handling and ensures a comfortable rolling noise and a more even wear pattern.
Trumpet grooves. Prevent aquaplaning. The shoulder areas have trumpet grooves, bullet-type indentations that have been optimized for flow; they store water from between the tyre and the road, accelerating its flow from the main grooves towards the transverse grooves and maximizing grip.
Silent Groove Design. More driving comfort. The hemispherical indentations, reminiscent of a golf ball pattern, on the walls of the transverse ribs provide additional driving comfort. The innovation reduces the interior noise and external rolling noise of the vehicle. The design also reduces air resistance and cools the surface of the tyre, in turn improving wear resistance.
New Driving safety Indicator (DSI). Increases safety and driving comfort.

The next-generation Driving Safety Indicator on the centre rib indicates tread depth. You can check the amount of remaining tread in millimetres by examining the row of numbers on the tread. The numbers and water drop symbol indicating a risk of aquaplaning disappear, as the tyre wears down. When the tread depth is below 4 mm, a red stripe that indicates low tread depth will appear around the tyre. When this happens, please purchase new summer tyres in order to ensure maximum safety.

Increased safety through innovations: Winter Safety Indicator with snowflake and Driving Safety Indicator (DSI) with aquaplaning warning
The Nokian Driving Safety Indicator (DSI) along with the unique snowflake symbol, the Winter Safety Indicator (WSI), on the Nokian WR winter tyre clearly show the driver the groove depth as a number from 8 to 4 millimetres. The numbers disappear gradually as the tyre wears and its tread depth decreases. The snowflake remains visible down to 4 millimetres. When it disappears, the risk increases and the winter tyres should be replaced. There must be a minimum of 4 millimetres of tread in order to provide enough grip on snow as well as to prevent slush planing and aquaplaning on winter and summer tyres.
The Driving Safety Indicator on the Nokian summer tyres informs drivers of the groove depth as a simple figure from 8 to 3. An aquaplaning alert within this warns of the danger of aquaplaning with a water drop symbol. It disappears when there are only four millimetres of remaining tread, alerting the driver of the increased risk. No other tyre manufacturer has these innovations.
Nokian Tyres achieved a 1.389 billion euro turnover in 2014
Nokian Tyres achieved a turnover of 1.389 billion euros in 2014 and had over 4,000 employees. In Europe, Nokian Tyres operates with own sales companies in ten countries. The company also owns the Vianor tyre and car-service chain that comprises more than 1,300 outlets in 27 countries.
