In the early 1960s, the equipment of cars was still very minimalist. Accordingly, the driver could operate only a few functions via the dashboard: there was no air-conditioning system, navigation system or heated seats.
With the integration of the controls into the cockpit, however, the development of the modern cockpit is still far from over. Thanks to Continental’s Integrated Interior Platform, drivers can project important traffic information directly onto their windshield and dashboard, while the passenger can enjoy watching a movie. They can also listen to music – without loudspeakers – thanks to the 2Acted Sound System.
On the occasion of the 150th anniversary, we will show you the essence of our mission for greater mobility: Embark on a journey through the eventful history of the company since its founding in 1871 with fascinating motifs and experience the development of Continental into an international technology company.
Behind every individual image there is a special story, which you can discover here: From enthusiastic Continental staff members at work and surprising product launches at the end of the 19th century, to the spectacular world records and technologies for a sustainable and mobile future.
