History of Continental tyres
Continental develops pioneering technologies and services for sustainable and networked mobility of people and their goods. Founded in 1871, the technology company offers safe, efficient, intelligent and affordable solutions for vehicles, machines, traffic and transport. Continental currently employs more than 227,000 people in 56 countries.
Over the years Continental has worked more and more closely with car manufacturers to provide the best possible tyres in terms of safety and performance. When you purchase a new car the tyres haven’t been randomly selected, they have been carefully picked based on precise criteria and are known as original equipment (OE). Continental are a big player in the OE market with one in every three new cars in Europe leaving the factory fitted with their tyres. Some car manufacturers make it easier to spot if the tyres are OE with the use of Homologation markings (e.g. MO for Mercedes, N1 for Porsche, AO for Audi, * for BMW, TO for Tesla). If for example a tyre carries the MO specified symbol (ContiEcoContact 5 205/55 R16 91 V MO) it will have been significantly influenced/determined by Mercedes themselves. To generate this marking Continental would have performed over 100 different tyre tests over a period of 2-4 years to fully meet the requirements set. So when the time comes to replace the tyres on your Mercedes the MO marked Continental’s are the ones you need.
Continental is more than just tyres and that’s evident in their partnership with adidas. Since 2010 they’ve been working with adidas to provide the exterior soles for a number of their running and outdoor shoes like the Ultra Boost, Supernova, Adizero and Terrex. Continental rubber gives the trainers up to 30 per cent more grip than other soles, so it’s no coincidence that since 2010 three men’s marathon world records have been broken using their technology.
They’re also partners of Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge, Surrey. This has allowed Continental to offer free educational driving experiences on winter v summer tyres, and 1.6mm v 3mm stopping distances.
Continental is known for setting the trend, they were the first tyre manufacturer to get involved with football. It all began in 1995 when they started sponsoring the Champions League. Over the last 22 years they’ve been involved in 3 FIFA World Cups (2006, 2010, 2014), 3 UEFA EURO Championships (2008, 2012, 2016) and the FA Women’s Super League.
Continental’s Vision Zero, a world with zero accidents, injuries or fatalities. An ambitious goal the business has set itself. And for good reasons. Only Continental knows the entire braking process in every detail – from pedal to tyre. Apart from its innovative tyre products, the Continental Automotive Group has already developed game-changing safety technologies that can be found in most of today’s modern cars: ABS, ESC and EBA, to name just a few. And this is only the beginning. With the on-going rise and evolution of the intelligent car, there is more potential than ever to reach Vision Zero. The vision aims to address all those active on our roads, from drivers, to fleet operators, to safety bodies and cyclists.
A partnership with the Global New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP) through its ‘Stop the Crash’ campaign has further enhanced Continental’s status as a leader in automotive technology and safety. At the London Motor Show in 2016 and 2017 they educated motorists about simple tyre safety checks all drivers should undertake, whilst highlighting its latest safety systems such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB). In 2016 over 1,200 people experienced first-hand the impact of safe tyres and AEB technology during live demonstrations. This highlighted Continental’s commitment to consumer engagement and how such safety systems can help contribute to its Vision Zero initiative.
