Mercedes has opted for premium products from Continental to equip its new full electric SUV in the EQ family.
The new EQB will come off the line on EcoContact 6 tyres in 19 inches. Mercedes is also offering a high-safety Continental winter tyre ex-factory: the WinterContact TS 850 P.
The EcoContact 6 summer tyre is characterised by not only its outstanding energy efficiency but also its superior handling and brake performance. Continental has lowered the rolling resistance of the EcoContact 6 by 15 per cent compared with the previous model. The specially developed rubber compound minimises friction when the tyre is in contact with the road surface, which means that the tire absorbs less energy and, in turn, rolling resistance is reduced. The EcoContact 6 recently showed off its energy efficiency as part of the summer tyre test organised by German trade magazine Auto Zeitung (issue 6/22), in which it beat nine other tyres from European, Asian and U.S. manufacturers in a rolling resistance test. In addition, the tyre also offers excellent cornering stability even at high speeds. The tread profile constantly adapts to the road surface, ensuring a longer tyre life.
Mercedes EQB customers can also opt for matching winter tyres right when they place their orders. Here Continental offers the WinterContact TS 850 P. The tread of this tyre line has numerous blocks and longitudinal sipes, providing improved traction and short braking distances on snow and wet road surfaces.
