Michelin Offers Three Tyre Ranges for the New All-Electric Porsche Macan
July 5, 2024

Michelin is presenting three bespoke tyre ranges—summer, winter, and all-season—tailored specifically for the new all-electric Porsche Macan. Since 2014, Michelin has been the sole manufacturer to offer Porsche such a diverse and customised tyre selection.

The 14 available dimensions cater to the unique demands of the new electric SUV, ensuring optimal performance for various driving conditions. Michelin’s extensive experience with electric cars, SUVs, and low-emission sports vehicles is a key factor in meeting Porsche’s stringent requirements.

A Legacy of Innovation

For over 50 years, Michelin and Porsche have partnered to drive innovation forward. The new Macan, unveiled on 25 January, marks Porsche’s first all-electric SUV. Michelin’s involvement spans all generations of the Macan since its inception in 2014. The introduction of three tyre ranges for the new Macan reinforces Michelin’s role as a pioneer and preferred original equipment partner for Porsche.

Custom Tyres for the Electric Porsche Macan

The rise of electric vehicles has revolutionised the tyre industry. To meet the ambitious specifications of the new electric Porsche Macan, Michelin leveraged its expertise in electric vehicle technology, honed over eight seasons in the World Formula E Championships, where Porsche has competed since 2019.

Tyres for electric sports cars must match the performance of those for combustion engines while addressing unique challenges such as autonomy (the distance an electric vehicle can travel on a single charge) and rolling noise. The additional weight of batteries also increases vehicle mass, impacting tyre mileage and performance. Moreover, electric motors deliver full torque from zero speed, necessitating tyres that enhance drivability. Michelin’s three tyre ranges for the Macan address these considerations while meeting Porsche’s Original Equipment (OE) approval standards.

The MICHELIN Pilot Sport EV NE0 summer tyre is engineered specifically for the all-electric, four-wheel-drive Macan. Its internal structure and rubber composition ensure excellent drivability and durability under high power. The tyre optimises rolling resistance to enhance autonomy and provides maximum grip on both wet and dry surfaces, maintaining high performance throughout its lifespan. Special attention was given to reducing rolling noise, a significant concern for electric vehicles.


Designed for winter conditions, the MICHELIN Pilot Alpin 5 SUV NE0 offers superior safety and performance on cold, wet, and snow-covered roads. The siped rubber blocks in the tread improve drivability and shorten stopping distances in slippery conditions. The robust construction includes reinforced sidewalls, and the tyre features the 3PMSF (Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake) symbol, certifying it for winter use.


The MICHELIN Pilot Sport A/S 4 NE0 is an all-season tyre ideal for high-end and sports vehicles. It provides a balanced performance, combining the advantages of summer and winter tyres. This tyre performs well in hot conditions and retains its properties in temperatures below 7°C, making it perfect for climates with significant temperature variations. It offers a year-round solution for motorists who prefer not to switch between summer and winter tyres.


These three tyre ranges for the new all-electric Porsche Macan offer drivers comprehensive solutions for various surfaces and conditions. They meet the precise, sporty handling characteristics that define the Macan, now available in an all-electric version.
