Electric mobility, essential to the energy transition: a conviction for Michelin

In addition to the real growth potential in the electric vehicle market – whether for passenger cars, public transportation or even two-wheel and other electric micro-mobility options – Michelin sees another major benefit of electromobility: how it can accelerate the energy transition. Rolling resistance, rolling noise, wear resistance and energy consumption are all performance criteria that need to be integrated into the development of solutions for electric vehicles, and all require a high level of research and innovation, like Michelin.

Michelin is also convinced that hydrogen mobility will be one of the key components of clean mobility, complementing electric battery technology, and will play a key role in the large-scale expansion of electric vehicles, and therefore “zero-emission” mobility. It will also accelerate the energy transition by being one of the most flexible storage mediums for renewable energies. This is an opportunity for Michelin, which has over 15 years of expertise in the field of hydrogen.
