Michelin Energy Saver+
- Save up to 60 litres of fuel compared to its predecessor (1)
- Plus the excellence of MICHELIN tyres in safety and longevity
- Optimised Profile
- Eco N Grip
- Under-Tread Layer
Optimised Profile Increased safety: 10% larger tyre footprint gives better contact with the road and excellent grip (2).
Eco N Grip Increased fuel savings with excellent longevity: The new patented Eco ‘N’ Grip technology uses a tread compound with improved molecular cohesion to reduce heat build-up.
Under-Tread Layer Increased fuel savings: Michelin has added a special under-tread layer containing very low rolling resistance polymers to reduce fuel consumption.
Legal mentions: (1) Estimate of average savings with Michelin ENERGYTM Saver+ compared to its predecessor, for petrol vehicles, based on rolling resistance tests carried out by TÜV SÜD in 2012 (on 175/65 R 14 T and 195/65 R 15 H) and calculated over the average life span for MICHELIN tyres (i.e. 45 000 km - 2012 internal survey). Compared to its predecessor, 16” sizes, 205mm section width and over.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
