Michelin e.Primacy

Manufacturer's description

The eco-responsible tire made to last.

  • CoolRunning Sidewalls (Thanks to an innovative component, these sidewalls absorb less energy when flexing, thereby reducing energy consumption and increasing EV range);
  • U-Shape groove (This Evergrip technology has proven its capabilities on the MICHELIN Primacy4, which is renowned for its performance on wet surfaces in both new and worn condition. The grooves’ unique shape ensures that water is effectively evacuated regardless of the depth of tread wear);
  • MaxTouch Construction (This Evertread technology maximizes tire contact with the road and evenly distributes braking, acceleration and cornering forces.This helps to extend tread life, underpinning the MICHELIN e.PRIMACY’s excellent durability);
  • Slim belt (These thinner top belts have a specific design that delivers the same resistance while requiring less raw material. As a result, they generate less rolling resistance compared to traditional designs, which helps to improve fuel efficiency and reduce vehicule CO2 emissions);
  • Energy Passive compound (This technology, which is the primary source of the MICHELIN e.PRIMACY’s low rolling resistance, is based on a high elasticity elastomer. Inside the compound, improved elastomer-filler coupling reduces energy loss, which lowers rolling resistance and therefore reduces the amount of fuel or electricity needed to move the vehicle);
  • Energy AirShield (The Energy AirShield is a highly hermetic belt that lowers energy loss, which also helps to reduce rolling resistance).

Notable Features

Michelin e.Primacy is a “green” passenger summer tire. According to the French tire maker, its key features include strong dry and wet grip, as well as long tread life and extremely low rolling resistance, which raised the bar still higher for other aftermarket tire manufacturers. Michelin e.Primacy When developing the Michelin e.Primacy, the Michelin engineers focused as much as possible on the tire’s environmental performance, and, most likely, it will replace a few tires from the Energy Saver line, even though its visual appearance is very much like that of the Michelin Primacy 4.

It is noted that the Michelin e.Primacy’s rolling resistance is 27% lower than that of other similar summer tires from the world’s top brands, not used anywhere as OEM equipment. Every 100 km of the way, a set of e.Primacy tires reduces fuel consumption by 0.21 l, which after 35,000 km will result in 80-Euro savings. CoolRunning Sidewall Due to the CoolRunning innovative design, the sidewalls absorb less energy during deformation, thus reducing energy consumption. A thinner breaker-strip ply requires less raw materials, but this did not compromise the strength of the “green” model. In comparison to standard-construction tires, such an approach made it possible to significantly reduce the e.Primacy’s rolling resistance. Energy AirShield The Energy AirShield technology has improved the air-tightness of the breaker strip, resulting in less energy loss. Energy Passive Compound The Energy Passive tread compound, based on an extra-supple elastomer, also reduces energy losses and rolling resistance of the Michelin e.Primacy, which, in turn, cuts down the amount of fuel or electricity necessary for keeping the car in motion. U-Shaped Grooves The use of U-shaped grooves as part of the proprietary EverGrip technology, which has already demonstrated its capabilities in the Michelin Primacy 4 model, ensured excellent wet braking performance of the e.Primacy both in a new and in a worn-out condition. Effectively, this means that regardless of the tread depth, the unique profile of the grooves guarantees that water will be dispelled from the contact patch with maximum efficiency. MaxTouch Technology The MaxTouch technology expands the Michelin e Primacy contact area and evenly distributes the pressure during the braking, acceleration, and maneuvering, which helps to extend tread life.
