(1) Greater range and lower CO2 emissions – New, the MICHELIN e-PRIMACY tyre offers an average of 2kg/t less rolling resistance than the competition, equivalent to a fuel saving of up to 0.21L/100km. This corresponds to a 5g reduction in CO2 emissions for a VW Golf 7 1.5 TSI, and a 7% increase in range for a VW e.Golf. Rolling resistance tests, conducted on machine by Applus Idiada on Michelin’s request, in June (new tyre) and August (2 mm buffed) 2020, on dimension 205/55 R16 91V.
(2) Better range for high-performance electric vehicles –In-house rolling resistance study, carried out in 10/2020, on dimension 255/45 R19, comparing the MICHELIN Pilot Sport EV tyre (6.47kg/t) to the MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4 SUV tyre (8.8kg/t). For an electric vehicle weighing 2,151kg, with a range of 540km, this difference of 2.3kg/t results in a range increase of over 60km, equivalent to a 10% improvement over the original range.
