Notable Features

Michelin Energy XM2+ is a summer tire for small and midsize cars, whose key advantages are environmental performance and high fuel efficiency. This model was first presented in Thailand in 2019.

Essentially, the Michelin Energy XM2+ is a modified version of the Energy XM2 model, from which it inherited the tread pattern. Energy XM2+ Compared to its main competitor, the Bridgestone B290, the Michelin Energy XM2 + tire, both new and worn, slows down much faster on wet pavement, with the difference in stopping distance increasing with wear. The “plus” development is designed to ensure dependable overall performance, particularly on wet pavement, as well as a longer tread life. According to the manufacturer, the Energy XM2+ tires stay safe even when considerably worn out, which makes the driver confident in efficient braking performance of their vehicle long before the tires need to be replaced.

Among other things, this feature is ensured by sipes of varying depth, which “open up” as they wear, allowing the tire to dispel water from the contact patch in the same amount as when the tread is still brand new. Brake application Thanks to the new-generation silica-based tread compound, the stopping distance ensured by the Michelin Energy XM2 Plus from 80 km/h on wet pavement is shorter than that of other leading tire brands: on average, 1.5 meters shorter than that of new tires, and 2.6 meters shorter than used ones, the company says.

A better wet traction is ensured by functional elastomers included in the tread compound; a higher resistance to wear is ensured by stronger molecular ties between its particles.

It is also noted that the expected mileage of this “green” tire is 29% longer than that of its premium-brand analogues. The tread life of the new green Michelin model is up to 29% longer compared to premium brand tires The fuel-saving capabilities of this model are highlighted by a “Green X” sign on the tire’s sidewall.

It is also worth mentioning that the sidewalls of the Michelin Energy XM2+ are characterized by extra resistance to shock, which is ensured by the manufacturer’s proprietary technology called Ironflex. The high-strength threads of the carcass absorb peak loads, while the design of the sidewalls significantly reduces the risk of bulges or complete tire collapse.

Depending on the size, the Michelin Energy XM 2+ may have 2 or 3 circumferential grooves.
