Tradition and Progress
Looking back on more than 145 years of innovation and growth, we’re very proud of our heritage at Continental tyres. We invented the first ever patterned tyre tread. And the first ever tubeless tyre. Plus the world’s first driverless car. Also the world’s first eco-friendly tyre. And the world’s fastest road legal tyre. That’s a lot of firsts – and we haven’t even begun to list all of them. Founded in Hanover, Germany, in 1871, we’ve amassed a vast amount of knowledge and expertise. Decades of extensive research and testing, for example, have proven beyond doubt that tyres aren’t only crucial for a vehicle’s overall performance – they significantly influence braking power, too. With an emphasis on progress, we continually strive to optimise our product range. The Continental product development teams work to maximise all safety-relevant characteristics of our tyres, while simultaneously minimising rolling resistance. These aspects make a fundamental contribution to driving safety and sustainability.
Verified by Partners
The modern car operates through a complex interaction of sophisticated components – and that includes the tyres. The right set of tyres guarantees that the car’s performance on papertranslates into performance on the road. It’s a good thing, then, that one in every three cars in Europe delivered from the factory is fitted with tyres from Continental. As the leading OE supplier in the European market, gaining approval from our partners is a sign of a product’s exceptional quality.
