MILAN—Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd. has selected summer and winter versions of the Pirelli P Zero and Scorpion lines as exclusive OE fitments on the 2020 Aston Martin DBX, the Luxury car maker’s first SUV.
Milan, Italy – Pirelli & C SpA is to reduce costs and contain investment under a 2020-2022 industrial plan, to be presented in the first quarter of next year.
As well as a continuing focus on the high-value segment, the plans will “bring significant reinforcement to the competitiveness of [the] business model,” Pirelli said in a third quarter financial report.
Pirelli announced they have developed the world’s first intelligent tire that can transmit information regarding road surface via the 5G network.
In Turin, the company presented the “World-first 5G enhanced ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) services” use case. The demonstration took place during “The 5G Path of Vehicle-to-Everything Communication” event organized by 5GAA – Automotive Association, of which Pirelli is a member.
Colder temperatures, freezing rain, ice, snow, road salt and potholes are just some of the challenges that can impact drivers getting from point A to point B safely this winter. Tiremaker Pirelli recently kicked off a 44-day campaign, #Below44, designed to educate consumers on why winter tires are critical for anyone who lives in an environment where the temperature regularly drops below 44oF.
Adding to a string of auto parts suppliers hit by prolonged industry weakness, Pirelli said it forecast a full-year margin on its adjusted earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) between 17% and 17.5% versus an already lowered previous target of 18-19%.
Pirelli, which makes tyres for Formula One racing teams and premium automakers such as BMW and Audi, said in a statement it cut its guidance after facing greater fixed costs as it lowered production to reduce inventories.
Milan, Italy — Pirelli & C. SpA has honoured nine outstanding supplier companies recently with its 2019 Supplier Awards.
