      Our Strategy

      The transformation in the mobility industry opens up many opportunities. To capitalize on these opportunities, Continental adopted a realigned strategy in the year 2020. This is based on three cornerstones:

      1. Strengthen operational performance
      2. Differentiate our portfolio
      3. Turn change into opportunity

      Our Sustainability Ambition

      Continental Reports Strong Tire Business in the First Quarter

      Continental performed well in the first quarter of 2022 despite an increasingly turbulent market environment, reporting strong tire business. Many external factors, such as the war against Ukraine, the coronavirus pandemic, electronic component shortages and cost increases in procurement and logistics, presented major challenges.

      Our Structure

      With effect from January 1, 2022, the Tires and ContiTech business areas (before consolidated in the Rubber Technologies group sector) have become independent group sectors. At the same time, Continental has comprehensively realigned the Automotive Technologies group sector (since 2022: Automotive) and has created five dynamic, flexible business areas whose future structure will be geared to the strategic action fields and market development of Automotive Technologies.

      Our Technology Highlights

      Technologies for future mobility

      In addition to trendsetting technologies such as automated and autonomous driving, electrification, smart infotainment and holistic connectivity, several very fundamental trends are influencing the sector: digitalization, sustainability, efficiency, and cost saving are as much a part of the automotive sector as safety on the roads and comfort and convenience while driving.

      Our History

      150 years of Continental

      On October 8, 2021, our hearts were beating faster! That’s because on October 8, we are celebrating a milestone: Continental’s 150-year anniversary. We have so much to look back on - right from the start we made our mark on mobility, explaining why millions of people place their trust in us every day.

      Starting with only around 200 employees, over time we have grown into a company with lasting success, and with almost 200,000 colleagues worldwide. Transformation and change have always been part of our history, which is why we are confident about the new changes in mobility.
