The first Continental tyre designed specifically for electric vehicles

The Conti.e.Contact™ has made significant performance improvements in the areas of rolling resistance and noise levels compared to standard tyres. There is estimated to be 2.8 million electric cars registered worldwide by 2020 and Continental aim be at the forefront in tyre development of this evolving market. New sizes such as 195/55R20 are expected to emerge in the future as narrow tyres with a large outer diamater will significantly improve rolling resistance. Nevertheless, as with all Continental products, the Conti.e.Contact™ will be the safest in its segment.

For electric vehicles in compact class. The first e-car tyre.

Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Minimal rolling resistance for highest mileage. The Renault Twizzy has been the first vehicle equipped with Conti.eContact tyres in 2011. Also the new Volkswagen eGolf is equipped with Conti.eContact.

  • Minimal rolling resistance for highest mileage
  • Unrivalled braking performance and low noise emissions
  • Aerodynamic sidewall design with golf ball structure

Reduced rolling resistance for highest mileage. The Conti.eContact features a completely new design. In addition to a larger outer and rim diameter, which allows the same load capacity with reduced tyre width, it has an optimized sidewall flexing zone with less material, optimized tread depth and rigid ribs, as well as a flat contour. Through the resulting flexible sidewall area and reduced tread movement, the tyre offers optimized rolling resistance for highest mileage.

Unrivalled braking performance and low noise emissions. The tyre's four circumferential grooves offer an even pressure distribution in the footprint. This leads to lower noise emissions. In addition, the high number of lateral sipes and no lateral grooves create a reduced acoustic excitation and an optimal 'wiper-effect'. Thus, the noise emission is further reduced and the braking distance in the wet shortened.

Aerodynamic sidewall design with golf ball structure. The sidewall's smooth off-shoulder design, which is aerodynamically optimized, features less edges so as to avoid air turbulence. This results in reduced fuel consumption.
