This year’s British International Motor Show, held at ExCel London from 23rd July to 3rd August, will feature a demonstration of the benefits of low rolling-resistance tyres.
On their stand in the Greener Driving Pavilion, Michelin will be demonstrating the efficacy of their Energy Saver tyres. The demonstration involves two cars, one fitted with low rolling-resistance tyres, running down a ramp before coming to rest on an up-ramp. Michelin predict that the Energy Saver tyres will run further, enabling them to demonstrate the quantifiable advantages of their eco-friendly tyres.
Michelin state that the performance of its Energy Saver tyres translates into reduced fuel consumption of nearly 0.2 litres per 100km and reduced CO2 emissions, making the tyres good for the environment and good for the motorist’s bank balance.
