With Australian demand for electric vehicles trending upwards upwards[1], the Continental eContact is designed to fit the escalating requirements of today's EV drivers.

Puncture protection in the form of ContiSeal extends tyre mobility and provides peace of mind for EV drivers who have had to forgo a spare tyre - a common situation in many EVs. This Continental technology includes a sticky, viscous sealant layer that instantly seals 80% of punctures up to 5mm in diameter. 

Tyre noise if often more pronounced in EVs, due to an absence of engine and exhaust noise. The Continental eContact overcomes this through ContiSilent technology and noise breakers, for a whisper-quiet ride. 

A ContiSilent tyre contains a special polyurethane foam within the inner surface of the tyre tread, acting as a noise absorber for a more comfortable ride. While the acoustically optimised tread pattern design and partition-type technology work to block the path of sound waves and inhibit tyre noise. 


POWR Up the Possibilities

  • Puncture protection - Extended mobility without a spare tyre
