Continental and MAN strengthen cooperation

18 May 2015

  • MAN TGX EfficientLine 2 equipped with Conti EcoPlus as standard fitment
  • Conti Hybrid and Conti Scandinavia product portfolio as MAN original fitment
  • Continental repeatedly participates in the MAN Trucknology® Days

International tyre manufacturer Continental, a major supplier to MAN, is strengthening its long-standing partnership with the truck and bus manufacturer further. Continental’s Conti EcoPlus tyres, part of its Generation 3 truck tyre range, are standard fitment on the highly fuel efficient long-haul vehicle MAN TGX EfficientLine 2. In addition MAN has added Conti Hybrid, as well as all standard sizes of the Conti Scandinavia truck tyre range, to its original fitment portfolio. 

“We have worked in partnership with MAN for many years now and we are very proud that our Conti EcoPlus tyres are contributing positively to the fuel economy of the new TGX EfficientLine 2”, emphasises Peter Matzke, Head of OE Truck Tyres at Continental. He adds: “We are also very excited that MAN has adopted our Conti Hybrid and Conti Scandinavia product lines for original fitment on their vehicles.”

The partnership between the two companies was also demonstrated in late March, when Continental supported the MAN Trucknology® Days. With more than 230 vehicles and participants from all over the world, this international event proved to be an ideal platform for customer engagement and for presenting the advantages of the Conti Hybrid product line.
