Electric car subscription service, Onto is to fit Michelin replacement tyres across its fleet.
“We want to work with a tyre partner which truly understands EVs, the Onto brand and our sustainable mobility strategy,” said Onto co-founder and CEO, Rob Jolly.
“Michelin is already the original equipment fitment across much of the Onto fleet and has one of the broadest ranges of EV tyres on the market. Tyre choice can have a huge impact on EV performance.
“Partnering with Michelin will ensure we can keep our customers mobile with safe, long-lasting, quiet-running and energy-efficient tyres.”
Michelin notes its EV range has been designed to handle the additional weight of battery packs, high torque when pulling away from a standstill, near-silent powertrains and the need to maximise battery range. Key products include the Michelin e-Primacy, which the supplier says has the lowest rolling resistance in its category and the Michelin Pilot Sport EV.
Onto was founded in 2017 and provides a way for motorists to drive electric cars without the need for long-term commitment.
It provides insurance and free charging at more than 11,000 charging stations in the UK, as well as maintenance and servicing.
