Around the world, three out of four vehicles are equipped with either Continental tyres or automotive technologies, with an estimated one billion people using Continental every day.

Continental partnered with DSL in 2014 when DSL endeavoured to provide replacements for the growing number of European vehicles on our roads, since Continental is one of the preferred Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for these European vehicles.
