ERJ staff report (DS)
Detroit, Michigan -- Speaking at the Detroit Motor Show, Patrick Oliva, global vice president for Sustainable Development for the Michelin Group said Michelin expects the NHTSA to propose a final rule on tyre labelling early this year.
Oliva said, "While the expected US regulation does not currently include the specification of minimum tyre performance standards (unlike the EU legislation), Michelin strongly supports the establishment of such standards to assure the removal from the US market of tyres that are the worst performers in fuel efficiency." He said Michelin is working with other progressive stakeholders to request that Congress and NHTSA establish a low rolling resistance standard and has offered its full assistance and cooperation to advance this fuel saving and emission reducing standard.
