Michelin Green X

Manufacturing tires for practically every type of consumer vehicle from cars, vans and crossover vehicles to full-size pickups and sport utility vehicles, Michelin has long been committed to better mobility through the "sustainability of the planet and society over the long term."

While many drivers favor environmentally friendly mobility, most are unaware of how tires influence their vehicle's energy efficiency and environmental impact.

Regardless of the source of power (gasoline, ethanol, diesel, hybrid or plug-in electric), energy is needed to keep a vehicle moving. Lowering tire rolling resistance by optimizing a tire's weight, internal structure, tread design and tread compound makes it possible to reduce vehicle energy consumption, as well as the CO2 emissions and other greenhouse gases emitted by fossil-fuel engines.

Many of Michelin's most fuel-efficient Original Equipment (O.E.) and replacement tires are branded with their Green X symbol to provide visual confirmation of the tire's positive contribution to vehicle fuel efficiency and the global environment.

The application of the Green X symbol is determined by laboratory testing on a model-by-model, size-by-size basis. It is Michelin's guarantee that the tire provides a level of energy efficiency among the highest in the market for its category without compromising other key characteristics, such as traction and treadwear.

NOTE: Michelin tires branded with the Green X symbol are identified as such on the SIZES & PRICING page, as well as the tire's SPECS page.
