Michelin Launches New Tyre For Electric Sports Vehicles

Michelin has launched its first tire designed to address the specific demands made by electric sports cars.

According to the tyre maker, the MICHELIN Pilot Sport EV benefits directly from the progress Michelin has achieved over six seasons in Formula E and incorporates ElectricGrip CompoundTM technology which features a hard compound for the center of the tread to provide the grip required to handle high torque characteristics of electric sports cars. The sidewalls carry over the same pattern and velvet-finish markings of Michelin’s Formula E tire.

About Michelin Sport EV Tyre

  • Optimal grip on dry and wet roads – irrespective of the tire’s level of wear – taking into account the higher weight and weight-distribution characteristics associated with electric sports cars.
  • Outstanding resistance to wear in response to the high torque and acceleration forces of electric sports cars.
  • The MICHELIN Pilot Sport EV’s low rolling resistance extends range by up to 37 miles.
  • 20 percent less perceptible road noise thanks to MICHELIN Acoustic technology which takes the form of a custom-developed polyurethane foam that reduces cabin noise.

Michelin Launches New Tyre For Electric Sports Vehicles

The MICHELIN Pilot Sport EV is already available in China and will be available on vehicles released in Europe and North America from the third quarter 2021.
