      150 Years of Continental

      Mobility. Our Heartbeat for 150 Years.

      2021 is a special year for Continental: On October 8, our company will celebrate its 150th anniversary. 

      The history of Continental has been shaped by major successes and no less by major challenges. Both have made us what we are today – a leading international technology company. Every day, an estimated one billion drivers trust us with their lives. They rely on us. Our pioneering technologies are on board in three out of four vehicles on the road today worldwide. Their mobility is an expression of their Freedom To Act. This is what drives us.

      We have every reason to be proud of our development over the past 150 years! That is why we will be presenting our past, present and – most importantly – our future as part of our anniversary celebrations under the slogan “Mobility. Our heartbeat for 150 years.”

      In our anniversary year, we want to make our mobility heartbeat come alive for our staff, customers and anyone who wants to feel our mobility heartbeat. 

      You can start right away with our Marble Adventure! Travel by digital marble through the history of Continental and learn more about the company’s development from a manufacturer of rubber products to a world-leading technology company. 

      In our Heartbeat Stories, we take you along on a journey through the lives of extraordinary people who are connected to Continental in a very special way. You can also experience our mobility heartbeat through twelve fascinating photo stories that will guide us through 2021. 

      And this is only the beginning! Together with you, we’ll make hearts beat faster in our anniversary year.
