From the world’s first automobile tyre with patterned tread to smart tyres for self-driving cars, from natural and synthetic rubber to tyres made from dandelion, we have always pushed the boundaries of mobility. For 150 years we have developed innovative, safe and sustainable products for our customers – and we have no intention of stopping now. Even as we pause to review our history, we already have an eye on the road ahead. As this exciting journey continues, we invite you to join us in shaping the future of mobility – together.
Because tomorrow is what we make of it.
Tyre research and development at Continental
Innovation is a never-ending quest
We work hard to uncover the mobility solutions of tomorrow, looking beyond tyres to usher in electric mobility, intelligent connectivity, and state-of-the-art information and entertainment. Wherever the future takes you or your business, let’s go there together.
No matter what innovations automotive technology may bring, it’s the tyres that will transfer them to the road. Indeed, the tyres on the car you drive today are probably already smarter than you think. Continuing our long tradition of innovation and testing, we’re getting closer to the vision of the fully intelligent tyre.
While you already rely on your tyres to provide your car with grip, traction and stability in all weathers, smart tyres with intelligent sensors continuously check parameters such as your tyre pressure, so you don't have to worry about your tyres for a second. In the event of a puncture or other problems, these tyres will alert you immediately − preventing further damage to your tyres and minimising the risk of an accident. Which makes them an important source of confidence and that crucial sense of safety behind the wheel.

An accident-free future is possible
Whatever your age, vehicle or destination, we have always been dedicated to keeping you safe. Our heritage in tyre safety means that providing you with a sense of security on the road, no matter the conditions, is in our DNA. Today, the arrival of new technologies such as smart sensors, augmented reality and adapted lighting is shaping how safety will evolve in the future. Follow our journey towards a world with zero accidents.
Sustainable dandelion tyres
Looking after our planet is our responsibility, too
Sustainability is a theme that runs throughout our history. From developing carbon-neutral production processes to cutting emissions on the road, we are committed to looking after our planet. Today, we are already developing tyres made from dandelion and lowering fuel consumption and CO2 emissions through extensive material research and improved production processes, so just imagine what we could do tomorrow. Let’s work together to make mobility more sustainable.
