Continental PremiumContact 7 Is Auto Bild’s First Choice for EVs

Continental PremiumContact 7 has been awarded “Green the Tire of the Year” and “Eco Champion” by the German automobile magazine, Auto Bild.

The trade magazine recognized both the “exemplary” driving characteristics of the summer tyre and the “commitment to a clean environment in compliance with all safety standards”. In addition, Auto Bild also stated that PremiumContact 7 “ensures great driving pleasure”.

The editorial team tested a total of eight summer tyres in size 235/55 R 19, including two models specially developed for e-cars; the test vehicle was a Kia EV6. However, according to the editors, special e-car tyres are not necessary.

The good performance of normal tyres in the test shows that the “economical use of energy, whether in the form of electrical energy from the battery or fossil fuels from the fuel tank” is an important prerequisite. However, safety standards should not be lowered in the process.

In its summary, Auto Bild wrote that Continental PremiumContact 7 is a tyre with outstanding mileage and exemplary sustainability, the shortest wet and dry braking distances, precise dry handling, pleasantly quiet comfort, low tyre wear and low power consumption.
