HOPIUM, the first French manufacturer of hydrogen-powered vehicles, is partnering with Bridgestone, a global leader in tyres and sustainable mobility solutions, to develop premium tyres for its high-end sedan, Hopium Machina.

The goal of the partnership is to design bespoke tyres with low rolling resistance technology, a major factor to enhance the vehicle’s 1,000km driving range. The tyres will be created using Bridgestone’s proprietary Virtual Tyre Development technology, providing significant benefits in terms of both efficiency and sustainability.

Under its overarching Bridgestone E8 Commitment, the company has pledged to support the realisation of a sustainable society by providing social and customer value throughout every area of its business and operations, together with partners.

Olivier Lombard, Hopium’s CEO and founder said: “Since its start, Hopium has made it a point of honour to collaborate with the best in their fields. Today, this strategic agreement with a renown industrial world leader constitutes a major milestone in our ambitious roadmap. With considerable expertise in designing tyres and tyre technologies for newer types of mobility, Bridgestone will surely bring valuable learnings to the partnership, helping us live up to the challenges ahead.”

Steven De Bock, VP Consumer Replacement and OE, Bridgestone EMIA said: “This exciting partnership with Hopium once again demonstrates our support for the next generation of innovative mobility pioneers. We’re placing our recognised expertise at the service of a real game-changer in the field of zero-emission mobility and helping bring about a more sustainable future of mobility in the process.”
