Michelin Launches Most Fuel-Efficient Drive Tyre For The U.S And Canada Market

Michelin North America launched the Michelin X Line Energy D+ tyre- an ultra-low resistance, dual- drive line-haul tyre for the North American replacement market. The tyre was developed over a three-year period through an advanced-engineering project with the objective of reducing the fuel consumption of the next-generation Freightliner Cascadia Class 8 heavy-duty trucks, Michelin said. The project yielded a product with the lowest rolling resistance offered by Michelin in a dual-fitment drive tyre.

“The Michelin X Line Energy D+ sets a new standard for Michelin,” Adam Murphy, vice president, B2B marketing for Michelin, said. “With about 35 per cent of vehicle fuel consumption attributed to overcoming tire rolling resistance, this tire delivers both fuel savings while providing exceptional traction for driver confidence.”

Michelin X Line Energy D+ Tyre

As Michelin’s most fuel-efficient drive tyre for long-haul applications, the Michelin X Line Energy D+ tyre 275/80R22.5 size is designed for fleet looking to save hundreds of dollars in fuel spend with an estimated annual saving of around $725, said the tyre maker. The Michelin tyre meets SmartWay requirement and is greenhouse-gas 2 regulation and CARB compliant.

The X Line Energy D+ features a tread compound designed for exceptional fuel-efficiency. The Infini-Coil technology wraps 1/8-mile of steel cable around the casing to eliminate casing growth and ensure a consistent footprint and even wear. The casing designed with high-tensile-strength steel belts is capable of supporting multiple retreads, according to Michelin.

The tyre also features interlocking, edge-biting tread sipes and regenerative tread grooves designed to provide improved grip and traction throughout the life of the tyre. It has the ability to get a tractor up and running 35 per cent faster than a leading competitive tyre.
