Continental receives trio of wins at the Tire Technology International Award 2024

April 2, 2024 11:56 am

The awards were presented at the Tyre Technology Expo at the Hanover Exhibition Centre in Germany on March 19.

Continental has scooped up three wins at the Tire Technology International (TTI) Awards for Innovation and Excellence this year. The German premium tyre manufacturer took home the top prize of “Tire of the Year” for its new AllSeasonContact 2. In developing the tyre, the manufacturer focused on the needs of vehicles of all driving types and produced a tyre with safe handling, and impressive grip in all weather conditions.

Continental also won “Environmental Achievement of the Year – Tire Design” for the UltraContact NXT, for striking the optimal balance between sustainability, safety, and efficiency. The third award is the “Tire Concept of the Year” for the Conti CityPlus. This state-of-the-art tyre technology increases the total energy efficiency of a tyre by up to 10 per cent. The results are lower CO2 emissions from passenger cars with combustion engines and longer driving ranges for electric vehicles. The awards were presented at the Tyre Technology Expo at the Hanover Exhibition Centre in Germany on March 19.

“We are committed to performance, safety, and sustainability. For us being the only manufacturer to win three awards this year, this is a strong acknowledgement of our high innovation power. It is also a testament to the extra mile we go to truly understand our customers’ needs”, said Edwin Goudswaard, Head of R&D at Continental Tires. “We are all very proud and I congratulate the whole team for this outstanding achievement. We all work very hard every day to make mobility safer, more cost-efficient, and more sustainable for our customers.”

The Tyre Technology International Awards for Innovation and Excellence recognize the latest advances and developments in the tyre industry and are voted on by a panel of over 25 leading professionals. Continental won “Tire of the Year” and “Environmental Achievement of the Year – Tire Design” for the second year in a row

AllSeasonContact 2

All-rounder with convincing winter qualities, dynamic handling and short braking distances on wet roads, quiet drive-by noise, and high mileage – this is how independent tyre testers describe the all-season tyre AllSeasonContact 2. Continental has increased the mileage of the AllSeasonContact 2 by 15 per cent compared to the previous model and at the same time reduced the rolling resistance by 6 per cent – without compromising on safety. The AllSeasonContact 2 ensures even better handling on dry roads and has an even shorter braking distance on wet and dry roads. With its performance values, it is an efficient all-season solution for vehicles of all drive types.

UltraContact NXT

With the UltraContact NXT, Continental offers a tyre with a particularly high proportion of sustainable materials. With up to 65 per cent renewable, recycled and mass-balance-certified materials, the series tyre combines a high proportion of sustainable materials with maximum safety and performance. All 19 tyre sizes received the top EU tyre label rating (“A”) in rolling resistance, braking in wet conditions and exterior noise.

Concept Tyre Conti CityPlus

Thanks to the balanced interplay of efficient and sustainable technologies and materials, Continental products are particularly efficient when driving. The technology of the concept tyre Conti CityPlus increases the overall energy efficiency of a car tyre by up to 10 per cent. This means lower CO2 emissions for cars with combustion engines and greater range for electric vehicles. This is achieved by optimising tyre behaviour in inner-city stop-and-go traffic, which can increase the range of passenger cars by up to three per cent. For electric vehicles, this corresponds to a saving of around 0.6 kWh per 100 kilometres.

Continental develops pioneering technologies and services for sustainable and connected mobility of people and their goods. Founded in 1871, the technology company offers safe, efficient, intelligent, and affordable solutions for vehicles, machines, traffic, and transportation.
