Michelin North America, Inc. is partnering with Daimler Trucks North America on a key feature of the recently announced Freightliner Cascadia Class 8 heavy-duty truck. Three years in development, the MICHELIN X Line Energy D+ tire will be the featured long-haul drive-tire solution, contributing to the new Cascadia's 5 percent fuel-efficiency improvement over the 2017 model. With about 35 percent of vehicle fuel consumption attributed to overcoming tire rolling resistance, the MICHELIN X Line Energy D+ sets new standards for ultra-low rolling resistance in a dual drive tire (1) as one of DTNA's key fuel-efficiency building blocks in the new Cascadia.
