Best in braking. Best in know-how.
Curiosity is our main driver.
Continental understands the streets of the world – and how to brake on them. Every day, we put all of our passion and experience into the development of our innovations. Manufactured of only the highest quality materials, we are setting standards with every new product.
How? By applying the knowledge of our innovations to every new design: Our high performance tyres give us deep insights on how to develop a safer driving experience for everyday use. Technologies used in the Conti.eContact™ will help regular cars to be more efficient in the future. The ContiSeal™-principle made its way from the drawing board to being unstoppable on the road. Just a few examples why Continental is one of the Best in Braking.
And just one reason to it: We never stop exploring.
Learn from the past, reach for the future.
German engineering and accuracy is legendary. As the inventers of the first tread pattern tyre in the world, Continental seeks to prove this inventive spirit with every new product. Our centre of our engineering experience can be found in Hanover, Germany.
The research facility with its enormous and internationally renowned test race track, the Contidrom, bundles the expertise of over 1000 hard working scientists, engineers and designers in Europe and the US. And every new test follows one simple purpose: making driving safer. All that, of course, to the highest German standards – for over 140 years and counting.
Tested for your safety
Setting standards in standards.
Before any Continental innovation goes into production, it is tested intensively. Established and all new test methods guarantee everyday suitability. Continental uses and developes more and more advanced testing measuring technology to deliver matured and optimized products.
We test for your safety – around the world.
Throughout the year, we show time and time again that there are no limits to our tyre testing at our test sites in the USA, New Zealand, Sweden, Spain and, last but not least, on our in-house track near Hanover, the Contidrom – which is also a sought-after reference track for independent experts.
Each one of our winter and summer tyres from all over the world is thus tested under all kinds of weather and road surface conditions. It goes without saying that this all takes place using the most modern testing methods and measuring technology.
140,000 tyres alone are tested each year on a total 200 million kilometres. An international team of professional test drivers perform over 67,000 tests – and circle the world 500 times before an innovation is approved. This way, Continental ensures to deliver only the safest, most comfortable and reliable mobility solutions.
Looking ahead and further.
Since 1995, the Continental has already developed major key technologies for safer and more comfortable riving. Now it’s up to us to shape the future of the automobile.
The Continental Automotive Group is one of the world’s leading automobile suppliers with over 87,000 employees in over 170 locations. They all work in an unique setup from tyres to advanced safety systems with one common vision: making mobility safe, sustainable and interconnected. As cars get more intelligent, our three divisions Chassis & Safety, Powertrain and Interior work closely together to use this data for a better driving experience. From active and passive safety, data and fuel management right to the eye of the driver, Continental covers the entire process of driving a car – and maybe one day, even let it drive itself.
