"Markets across the globe have widely appreciated the CrossContact AX6 tyres, and we hope to see similar results in India," Gupta said.

The SUV sales in the domestic market have been significantly growing in the past few years.

As per industry estimates, the share of SUV and crossover sales in total passenger vehicle sales across India has grown to around 38 per cent in 2021 compared to a mere eight per cent in 2001.

The shift in consumer preferences has created a demand for high-performance tyres for SUVs in India.
