The Dunlop Enasave 01 A/S, which stands for energy saver, is Dunlop’s number one eco-friendly grand touring all weather tire; it was developed as original equipment fitment for the Mitsubishi i MiEV. The Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle city car, was created to be a zero emission all electric car to prevent further city pollution. The Mitsubishi i MiEV was designed with no gas tank, no exhaust system, and no CO2 vehicle emissions, it is a completely electric subcompact vehicle, weighing in at 1500 pounds. In order to match the Mitsubishi i’s super high tech all electric drivetrain, the Dunlop Enasave 01 A/S was designed to combine eco friendly environmental performance, a smooth quiet ride, and all season, year round traction whether dry, wet, or wintry conditions, including in light snow. The Dunlop Enasave 01 A/S features an extremely low rolling resistant tread compound which is then molded into a sharp symmetric design that provides stable uniform footprint pressure to promote all season traction while also reducing tire energy loss. Independent tread and shoulder blocks surrounded by wide circumferential and lateral grooves help to blend dry, and wet, road capabilities, while strategically placed sipes add extra deep biting edges to help promote snow traction. The internal features of the Dunlop Enasave 01 A/S feature twin steel belts which are then reinforced by spirally wrapped polyamide on top of a strong polyester cord casing.
