Michelin Energy Saver A/S
The Energy Saver A/S is Michelin North
America’s most fuel-efficient All-Season Passenger car tire
developed for the drivers of hybrid and fuel-efficient passenger
cars that want to exploit their vehicle’s fuel economy without
abandoning dry, wet and wintertime traction. Representing the
forefront of Michelin Green X technology, Energy Saver A/S tires can
enhance vehicle operating efficiency and environmental impact by
reducing fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions while
delivering year-round traction, even in light snow.
Expanding on the technologies of the Michelin Energy Saver summer
tires introduced in Europe during 2007, the Energy Saver A/S
All-Season Passenger car tire introduced in North America during
2009 offers exceptionally low rolling resistance at or below the
levels offered by its European summer tire counterpart.
The Energy Saver A/S features Michelin’s EnergySaver Construction
combined with a unique silica-based tread rubber that helps improve
engine fuel efficiency by keeping the tire cooler. This compound is
molded into a symmetric design that features siped, independent
tread blocks to combine predictable handling, no compromise stopping
performance and all-season traction without trading fuel efficiency.
Circumferential and lateral grooves direct water through the tread
design to help resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction.
Michelin Comfort Control Technology uses computer-optimized design
and precision manufacturing to reduce vibrations and road noise to
keep the vehicle quiet. The tire’s internal structure includes twin
steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped polyamide on top of a
polyester cord carcass to combine strength, efficiency and comfort.
