Electric vehicles represent some very different demands on the tires than conventional cars. The Continental E Contact is specially adapted to electric vehicles summer tires .
tires for electric vehicles must be completely different requirements than conventional passenger tires . For electric vehicles counts above all for the lowest possible rolling resistance and an especially good noise insulation, while the behavior of the tire can be practically neglected in high speed areas. With increasing proliferation of these vehicles and the development of specialized tires for this vehicle class is becoming increasingly important. Different technologies to reduce the energy consumption of electric cars and for better noise insulation are many manufacturers in testing, but the Continental E Contact is likely one of the most successful developments for electric vehicles to be so far. Around 30% reduced rolling resistance compared with conventional tires, the range can substantially increase. This high power level is primarily due to the narrow and high dimensions of Continental E Contact. The sidewall construction that reduces a compression and rebound of the tire helps to reduce the rolling resistance of the Continental E Contact.
The E Contact from Continental dispensed in his profile on lateral grooves - only four longitudinal grooves determine the profile of the tire. Thus, the noise emission of Continental E Contact is effectively reduced, at the same time also reduced the rolling resistance yet. The high number of segments and fin density and the stiff tread ribs good handling on dry and wet roads, and good braking performance is achieved despite the absence of transverse ribs. The order also very flat tire contour also contributes to a further reduction in rolling resistance.
The Continental E Contact is optimized for hybrid and electric vehicles summer tires, which carries out its low rolling resistance for a noticeably extended range of the vehicle, and at the same time cope with the high noise insulation and the quiet electric drive.More...
