BluEarth is a global concept which YOKOHAMA is communicating throughout the world. At its centre is the BluEarth Series, which has been rolled out globally with the concept itself as the product name. The same fuel efficient technology is fed back to tyres of all categories. Products developed under this unified concept display the BluEarth Concept logo all over the world.

The BluEarth concept expands to many products. BluEarth expands to many existing YOKOHAMA tyre brand names as well as become an icon for future tyre brands which have the BluEarth concept, from replacement after market tyres to original equipment tyres for new vehicles.

BluEarth Circle

BluEarth Technology drive our future.

Advanced Technologies to deliver Environmental, Human and Socially friendly solutions. We have set up our BluEarth technologies to be environmental, Human and Socially friendly. We will continue to develop more BluEarth technologies to include in our future tyres.

Launched in Europe in March 2011 the BluEarth products have earned the top designation under Japanese tyre manufacturers’ labeling standards for rolling resistance. In addition to reducing environmental impact through advances in fuel economy, BluEarth tyres reduces stress and enhances the driving experience for drivers and for passengers.

The BluEarth range minimizes the traditional tradeoffs between low rolling resistance, on one hand, and wet grip and long mileage on the other. It surpasses in that regard even the DNA dB super E-spec, our former flagship product in environmental performance. The BluEarth-1 is superior to the DNA dB super E-spec in reducing external, “pass-by” noise, and it is fully comparable to its predecessor in handling stability and quiet ride.

Our BluEarth series includes the BluEarth RV-02, for minivans, and the BluEarth ES32, available in sizes for a broad range of model types, as well as the flagship BluEarth- EF21. We will continue to augment the BluEarth series with new products to serve the global trend toward fuel-saving tyres. That will include offering the BluEarth tyres in a growing range of markets around the world.
