and General Motors have presented a new generation of airless wheel technology
for passenger vehicles — the Michelin Uptis Prototype (or “Unique Puncture
proof Tire System”) — at the Movin’On Summit for sustainable mobility.
and GM also announced a joint research agreement under which the companies
intend to validate the Uptis Prototype with the goal of introducing Uptis on
passenger models as early as 2024. Michelin and GM are testing the Uptis
Prototype, beginning with vehicles like the Chevrolet Bolt EV. Later this year,
the companies will initiate real-world testing of Uptis on a test fleet of Bolt
EV vehicles in Michigan.
