Top 3 Michelin Energy EV Reviews

Given 54% while driving a Renault Zoe (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 4,500 spirited miles
A surprisingly good tyre given the rubbish eco-boxes that they're generally fitted to; good grip levels in both the dry and wet even when compared to the Michelin PS3's, premium vredestein's & continentals we've had on our other cars...

The only downside is the lifetime... The fronts only have a couple of mm of tread left after 4500 miles.

Renault Zoe (195/55 R16 Q) on mostly country roads for 43,000 easy going miles
Had the Michelin EV tyres since new on a Renault Zoe. Had two replaced due to sidewall damage, one from a sharp curb while parking, the other my wife was driving so no idea why that one went flat. The tyres presently have 43 000 km on them, but the front steering would turn side to side at very low speed, nothing perceptible at normal speed. I took them to a garage to get the balance checked and he told me they were deformed and that they needed replacing. Said they were old! I have serious doubts as to his analysis.
Only been 4,5 years since I bought the car and it looked like they would have run to 60 000 km before wear was at the limit of 1,6 mm.

Given 80% while driving a Renault Zoe (195/55 R16 Q) on a combination of roads for 18,000 spirited miles
Came new with my Zoe. I have not rotated the tyres and I've found the fronts are now past it, however they've lasted 18,000 spirited miles. Wearing on outside shoulder and some of the blockwork is beginning to break up so I'll be changing out of safety than because they are too worn. If the shoulder and block had survived i don't doubt 20,000 would have been easily achievable. The back tyres are still like new.

Biggest issue is price, £100 for what is basically a small, skinny tyre! Outrageous!

Given 42% while driving a Renault Zoe (195/55 R16 Q) on a combination of roads for 16,000 easy going miles
These came on our Renault Zoe, we try and maximise range so can't comment on their performance and handling but premature ageing is definitely an issue. After 16,000 miles/4 years the front's have plenty of tread but the blocks are starting to break up and the sidewalls and shoulders are badly perished. Rears are in better condition than the fronts were but still have aged badly. Following an (all too common) front puncture we replaced both fronts with generic brands. The OEM Michelin EV are expensive and hard to source.

Given 37% while driving a Renault Zoe (195/55 R16) on mostly town for 3,000 easy going miles
I got this with a new Renault Zoe. Within 6 months I've had to replace 3 of them and fix one due to punctures.
As a comparison to my previous car which I used for the same journey I've had one puncture in 4 years.
They are so thin. Especially the sidewalls.

I purchased generic replacements and they have lasted much better.
