For more sustainable mobility

Because we partner original equipment manufacturers, listen to user feedback, are involved in motorsport and trade through every distribution channel, Michelin constantly innovates in its products and services to boost mobility today and invent the mobility of tomorrow. Each new edition of the Michelin Challenge Bibendum and the Shell Eco-Marathon show what the Group is doing to achieve more sustainable mobility.

Innovating to anticipate

A staff of 6,600 people on three continents, an annual R&D budget of close to €640 million and a portfolio of over 2,000 patent families give Michelin an unrivalled capacity for innovation in the tire industry. At stake: innovation in every field to achieve a more balanced blend of Michelin performances in safety, longevity and fuel savings.
