Porsche relies on premium tyres from Continental as part of the Taycan’s original equipment. Continental’s PremiumContact 6 summer tyres and WinterContact TS 860 S winter tyres are approved – all with XL markings for increased load force. The PremiumContact 6, ADAC test champion in the 2021 major summer tyre test, was specially developed for sporty and comfortable driving, and offers not only short braking distances, but also special cornering stability even at high speeds. The WinterContact TS 860 S combines reliable performance in snow with good steering precision for outstanding dry handling.
"In electromobility, the lowest possible rolling resistance, low noise emissions and a high load-bearing capacity of the tyre all play an important role. In original equipment, of course, great importance is also attached to the tyre's handling characteristics, as these have a significant impact on the vehicle's driving behavior. The Porsche Taycan is a good example of a high-performance electric vehicle with exceptional driving pleasure. In these vehicles, safety and confidence at high speed and a perfect match of the tyre to the vehicle are the focus of tyre design," says Dr. Holger Lange, head of tyre development for Continental's original equipment business.
Approval for the Porsche Taycan underscores Continental's strong position in the segment of tyres for all-electric vehicles. In 2020, six of the ten highest-volume manufacturers of electric vehicles worldwide trusted in Continental’s advanced technological expertise for their tyre’s original equipment.
