      Continental to Supply Tires for New Volkswagen ID.3

      • Volkswagen’s new electric car to be factory-fitted with Continental tires
      • Summer and winter tires adapted to the electric vehicle’s specific requirements
      • Approval also granted for ContiSeal technology for automatic puncture sealing

      Hanover, November 14, 2019. Continental tires are to be factory-fitted to the recently presented Volkswagen ID.3. Volkswagen has granted approvals for summer and winter tires for 18- and 19-inch rims. The EcoContact 6 summer tire and the WinterContact TS 850 P winter specialist have both been adapted to suit the specific requirements of the ID.3. As an electric vehicle, the ID.3 will run on tires with low rolling resistance that save energy in order to deliver the maximum possible range between charges; with low tire/road noise for passenger comfort; and with aerodynamic sidewall design to help minimize the vehicle’s aerodynamic drag. Both the summer and winter tires also feature ContiSeal technology. ContiSeal automatically and reliably closes punctures in the tire tread with a diameter of up to five millimeters, thereby eliminating approximately 90 percent of all punctures. The Continental Corporation also supplies the on-board server that provides connectivity for Volkswagen’s electric ID. models.
