The 2015 Ford Focus Electric will use Michelin Energy Saver tyres and have the tyremaker's dining guide loaded on its Ford Sync2 connectivity system.

The Focus EV will be fitted with 215/55 R17 Michelin Energy Saver tyres to, it says, give owners "the optimum combination of safety, comfort and handling".

The tyre also offer the benefits of low rolling-resistance to maximise driving range.


The Energy Saver is Michelin's latest LRR tyre and, the tyremaker says, highlights the brand’s ongoing commitment to a "total performance" strategy by combining a number of performance characteristics, among them safety, comfort, handling and low rolling-resistance with "no negative effects".

Michelin’s digital content will give drivers access to Europe's tourist, hotel and restaurant information from the famous Michelin Green Guides and Michelin Guides.

This will work with the car's satnav so drivers can plan their itinerary. Michelin has been a leader in the publication of tourist and culinary guides for more than 100 years.
