Continental EcoContact 6 Suitable for Hybrid and Electric Car
The company claimed that the features of EcoContact 6 fit perfectly with the model especially the hybrid versions.
For the EcoContact 6, Continental engineers have developed a special rubber compound that minimises energy absorption while the vehicle is in motion and, in turn, reduces friction and rolling resistance. This improves both wear and energy consumption.
In 2022, the German automotive magazine Auto Zeitung named the EcoContact 6 as the recommended choice for fuel economy. In addition to short braking distances, the premium tyre features an asymmetrical tread pattern that offers exceptional grip on dry and wet roads, as well as excellent cornering stability even at high speeds. The optimised tread design also helps to reduce tyre noise level inside the vehicle.
For more than a decade, Continental‘s engineers have been optimising their tyres to reduce rolling resistance and noise, as well as extending tyre life without compromising on safety. As a result, all tyres developed by Continental not only meet the specific needs of electric vehicles, but also help to reduce emissions from combustion engines.
For Tonale, tyres are available in sizes 215/60 R17 96V and 235/50 R18 97V.
