      Continental and the Microbus Model Line

      An association dating back more than seven decades

      Launched on the market in 1950, the very first model of the microbus model line, the T1, or more precisely the VW Type 2 T1, soon became a symbol of mobility and leisure culture in the years of the German economic miracle.

      Even then, Continental and its subsidiaries VDO and Teves, at the time independent companies, equipped the T1 with numerous components. These ranged from tires and parts of the instrumentation to brakes and smaller vehicle components. The development of the microbus from an analog bus to the digital ID. Buzz, which Continental has closely accompanied and contributed to over the years, impressively bears witness to its transformation from a mere supplier into a technology company.
