Looking back on more than 145 years of innovation and growth, Continental is very proud of their heritage. They invented the first ever patterned tire tread. And the first ever tubeless tire. Plus the world’s first driverless car. Also the world’s first eco-friendly tire. And the world’s fastest road legal tire. That’s a lot of firsts – and that's not even all of them.
Founded in Hanover, Germany, in 1871, Continental amassed a vast amount of knowledge and expertise. Decades of extensive research and testing, have proven beyond doubt that tires aren’t only crucial for a vehicle’s overall performance – they significantly influence braking power, too.
With an emphasis on progress, they continually strive to optimize their product range. The Continental product development teams work to maximize all safety-relevant characteristics of their tires, while simultaneously minimizing rolling resistance. These aspects make a fundamental contribution to driving safety and sustainability.
