Michelin CrossClimate cooking with British Gas

Energy provider British Gas will fit its entire fleet of 13,000 vans with Michelin CrossClimate tyres.

After comparing the new tyre technology to Michelin’s summer and winter ranges as well as some competitors’ all-season tyres, British Gas Fleet Manager Colin Marriott was “impressed by the performance”.

He continues, “On dry roads they performed as well as Michelin’s summer tyres, and outperformed the winter tyres and all-season tyres by some margin. It was a very easy decision.”

The CrossClimate has been designed to offer the benefits of a summer tyre for dry or wet braking, total mileage and energy efficiency, combined with the traction and braking performance of a winter tyre on cold and snow-covered roads.

Andy Fern, Michelin’s Head of Fleet, says, “By fitting CrossClimate, motorists can drive safely the entire year without needing to change tyres. CrossClimate fitments address an increasingly urgent need among business motorists to feel safer when faced with unstable, unpredictable weather.”
