“Boughey Distribution are one of our launch customers for the new FH. They’ve ordered several i-save Tractor Units. To complement that, they’ve ordered it with MICHELIN X® Multi™ Energy™ tyres. The new regional pattern will give them the most efficiency they can, so, yes, a very much smart move on their behalf”.

“The decision to renew our entire fleet gave us the opportunity to analyse every aspect of the vehicle specification, and ensure it was fine-tuned for maximum efficiency. The team at Quinton Tyres recommended MICHELIN X Multi Energy tyres, and it just made perfect sense for us.”

Webinar – An ongoing journey toward sustainable transport

Let’s take up the regulation challenge and achieve a sustainable transportation together by decreasing the CO₂ emissions.

What does the new heavy duty CO emission regulation say?

The new CO₂ regulation implemented by the European Commission leads the change towards a more sustainable freight transportation.

From 2025 on, manufacturers will have to meet new CO₂ emissions targets. Various parameters such as tyre rolling resistance will still be calculated using the VECTO tool to simulate fuel consumption and CO emissions. This is where Michelin can help.

The ‘‘Euro Vignette’’ directive, which governs road tolls for heavy goods vehicles in the EU, was revised in March 2022. EU Member States will be required to set different rates of road tax depending on a truck’s CO2 emission class. The emission class will be determined by the truck’s VECTO calculation tool for measuring CO2 emissions based on data entered by the manufacturer.

Reduce your CO emissions with MICHELIN tyres

Trust Michelin to help choose the right tyre according to your usage and optimize your fuel consumption and mileage.
