The Michelin ENERGY SAVER can be summed up in just a few words: reduced fuel consumption and shorter braking distances. This tyre is designed for everyday use in family cars, city cars and minivans. As well as safety and reliable drivability in any conditions, these tyres also offer reduced fuel consumption. This is due to the use of a special rubber compound, noted for its durability and lightness. This means that the tyre weighs less than other models of the same class, thus significantly reducing fuel consumption.
The Michelin ENERGY SAVER also has a long lifetime since the tyre is durable and wears evenly. This not only ensures that it lasts longer, but also guarantees a safer journey by providing an optimal performance throughout the tyre's lifetime. Using innovative solutions, the tyre's developers managed to reduce braking distances on wet surfaces by up to 3 metres compared with the previous generation of tyres. This is a significant difference, especially for drivers paying particular attention to safety when choosing a tyre. The Michelin ENERGY SAVER is one of the new generation of Michelin tyres that use silica instead of soot (previously used as one of the components of building tyres). The tyre therefore meets the highest ecological standards and is environmentally friendly both during its production and when in use.
