ELECTRIC VEHICLEs

One of our challenges today is to extend the battery range of our electric vehicles.

A little-known fact is that tires represent 30% of the energy consumption of a vehicle. That’s due to the rolling resistance of tires, which ensures a safe, smooth grip between a vehicle and the road.

Improving the equilibrium between rolling resistance and energy consumption has been an on-going industry challenge, especially for electric vehicles whose battery ranges we’re striving to increase.

At Michelin, lowering the rolling resistance of our tires has piloted our innovations over the years. Since 1992, we’ve launched five generations of car tires and three generations of truck tires that have superior energy efficiency.

 

Michelin designs tires specifically for electric cars, mountain bikes, bicycles, and scooters, that allow them to decrease their battery drain and travel longer distances.
