Continental takes tire engineering beyond the extreme

Your personal guide to Extreme E is Mikaela Åhlin-Kottulinsky, a professional racing driver who’s smashing the glass ceiling in motorsports. Join her in a series of short films as she goes behind the scenes for the most exciting innovations in the most revolutionary of racing events.

Mikaela is the first woman to win a race in the VW Scirocco R-Cup in 2014, and the first woman to win a Swedish Touring Car Championship race in 2018. More recently, she kicked off the 2019 TCR Scandinavia Touring Championship season by winning the opening race and immediately taking pole position, the first female to achieve this remarkable double.

Follow Mikaela as she talks to some of the passionate professionals building a new kind of tire for Extreme E, while also providing a primer on some of the rules and technologies of this unique racing championship.

Stay tuned, and you’ll also see her test-driving the ultra high-performance tires equipped on Extreme E all-electric SUVs on the Continental test tracks. Together with Mikaela, you’ll be among the very first to experience Continental tire engineering at its finest and most inventive.
