Michelin, one of the worldâ€™s leading tyre company recently introduced MICHELIN Energy XM2+ in India replacing the widely successful MICHELIN Energy XM2 tyres. Targeting young and commuting consumers who look for a tyre with performance and safety that lasts till end of the tyreâ€™s life, the MICHELIN Energy XM2+ is the ideal fitment for small- and mid-size passenger cars. Developed to outperform its previous generation, the MICHELIN Energy XM2+ offers ultimate safety â€“ both when new, and throughout its useful life.Mohan Kumar, Vice President, Michelin India said â€œLong Lasting Performance is at the heart of Michelinâ€™s activity. In India, we are again raising the bar for daily commuting tyres with MICHELIN Energy XM2+, which improves on its predecessor, the MICHELIN Energy XM2, a leading mass-market tyre for 8 consecutive years. We are committed to bringing tyres to our customers that stay safe and offer high performance levels to their legal wear limit, and MICHELIN Energy XM2+ is a true testament of this commitmentâ€.With a new full-silica rubber compound, the MICHELIN Energy XM2+ stops 2.4 meters shorter on wet roads in new condition and 3.3 meters in worn condition compared to a premium competitor tyre.
MICHELIN Energy XM2+ offers longer mileage outlasting its leading competitor by 29%. The new rubber formulation with strong link of filler-filler molecular bond minimizes wear rate and its Alternate Bridge Technology ensures lesser shuffling in tread block, resulting in lower wear.
The â€˜+â€™ sign on the sidewall denotes the rubber compound upgrade that is behind the braking superiority of the MICHELIN Energy XM2+ versus its predecessor. The tyre also maintains the Green â€˜Xâ€™ marking of its predecessor, indicating optimized fuel savings. We hope the combination of enhanced safety and superior value-for-money will particularly appeal to the younger consumers.
In India, the new MICHELIN Energy XM2+ is now available starting from MRP INR 5090 at Michelinâ€™s authorized dealers across the nation. The tyres will be available in 30 sizes by early 2020 from 12 to 16 inch (30.48 â€“ 40.64 cm) diameter for a wide range of hatchbacks, sedans, compact SUVs and MUVs.
