Michelin Is India’s First Tyre Brand To Get A Star Rating For Fuel Efficiency

French tyremaker Michelin,  has become the first tyre brand in the country to be accredited with the recently introduced star labelling program of Government of India which is aimed at improving sustainability and newly introduced performance standards for tyres.

The new regulations will demand that all tyres sold in India meet crucial performance and safety standards such as rolling resistance, wet grip, and rolling sound emission. Domestic and foreign tyre makers and importers for automobiles, buses, and heavy vehicles will be required to follow the proposed mandatory standards starting 2023.

Ranganathan BHUVARAHAMURTHY, Executive Director, Michelin India Chennai Plant said “The introduction and standardisation of tyres performance and fuel efficiency parameters is a historic milestone for the Indian automotive industry, and we want to congratulate the Government of India for this initiative.”

This first 4 Star rating for Michelin X MULTI ENERGY Z opens a greater opportunity for us with fleet customers, who are environment and total cost of ownership conscious.”

“With the introduction of the star labelling, customers will now be better placed to select tyres that are best suited for their driving usage, at the same time keeping their vehicles fuel efficient and safe. More and more certified low rolling resistant tyres on Indian road will lead to better fuel savings for Indian fleets and will lead to reduction of CO2 emissions in the country.”
