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 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".

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.
