History of the Michelin Group Michelin brothers André and Édouard embarked on a great human and industrial odyssey in 1889 – to develop modern transport solutions that assisted freedom and economic development through ceaseless innovation. Since then, the Michelin brand has been associated with many industries and world firsts: the first detachable bicycle tire (1891), the first paved runway in the world (1916), the first Radial tire (1946), to name a few.
In 1922, Michelin commissioned a market survey entitled "The National People's Automobile Survey" The aim was to collect data on consumer needs to draw up a design brief for a new, more versatile, and, above all, more affordable automobile. The result was the Citroën 2 CV.
Michelin was the first winner of a new type of race: the World Rally Championship (WRC) created by the Fédération Internationale Automobile (FIA) in 1973. It partnered with the Renault-Alpine team. That year, Michelin set up its Motorsport department. And to this day, Michelin tires are the most sought after tires in any motorsport.
Michelin UPTIS, with its innovative and revolutionary technology, eliminates any risk of punctures. Unveiled by Michelin at the "Movin' On 2019" summit dedicated to sustainable mobility, Michelin UPTIS, the airless tire, represents a significant innovation both in terms of safety and respect for the environment.
