The newest addition to the MICHELIN Energy family that give you stopping super-power; breaking shorter when new and when worn.
Michelin has launched a replacement for its popular Energy XM2 entry-level tyre, simply called the Energy XM2+. Aimed at city car and compact SUV car owners, the new rubber is touted to offer greater durability and shorter wet weather braking distances even when worn – a claim it shares with the Primacy 4.
While it sports the same tread pattern as its predecessor, the XM2+ features a newly-formulated full-silica tread compound that Michelin says is highly flexible, enabling micro-scale contact with the ground and ensuring better grip throughout the life of the tyre. It is also claimed to have a stronger bond that makes it more durable, resulting in minimized wear and thus, longer mileage.
As such, the tyre is said to allow for wet weather braking distances some 1.5 meters shorter than tyres from other premium manufacturers, extending that lead to 2.6 meters when worn. It also delivers up to 25% greater mileage compared to other tyres, according to Michelin, and it wears the same Green “X” marking as its predecessor, indicating optimized fuel efficiency as a result of low rolling resistance.
