Michelin has expanded its regional tyre range, with the launch of 315/80 R22.5 X Multi Energy Z (multi position) and X Multi Energy D (drive) sizes. Aimed at regional and national haulage fleets, they join the 315/70 R22.5, which was first launched in 2018.
According to Michelin, the new 315/80 R22.5 X Multi Energy tyres offer a marginal fuel efficiency improvement over regular X Multi tyres in the same size.
Chris Smith, MD of Michelin UK, said: “Traditionally, low rolling resistance Energy tyres have been aimed at long-distance fleets where the bulk of the work is on trunk roads at sustained high average speeds. However, the growing X Multi Energy range means we can now offer a fuel-saving tyre to even more regional hauliers. They are perfect for firms which want the benefits of low rolling resistance, but also have to cope with roundabouts and stop/start operations.”
Like all Michelin truck tyres, the X Multi Energy range is designed to be regrooved and retreaded.
