The EcoContact 6 was specially developed for low fuel consumption and high mileage.

  • Continental gets OEM approval for the EcoContact 6 and WinterContact TS 850 P
  • With their low rolling resistance, both tyre lines are designed for long ranges, short braking distances and excellent mileage
  • Both tyres feature runflat technology for greater safety in breakdowns

Mercedes has opted for premium products from Continental to equip its new fully electric SUV. The new EQA will come off the line on EcoContact 6 tyres in sizes ranging from 18 to 20 inches, depending on the feature package. Mercedes is also offering a high-safety winter tyre ex-factory: the WinterContact TS 850 P.

Continental has lowered the rolling resistance of the EcoContact 6 by 15 percent compared with its predecessor. A special rubber mixture, optimised for low rolling resistance, reduces tyre deformation caused by heavy loads whilst driving. Lower rolling resistance means less energy consumption. For electric vehicles, this can increase the range by three to four percent. Continental’s efficient tyres also have a short braking distance and excellent cornering stability even at high speeds, plus very good mileage.

Mercedes EQA customers can also opt for matching winter tyres when placing their orders. Here Continental offers the WinterContact TS 850 P tyre. Its tread has numerous blocks and longitudinal sipes, providing improved traction and short braking distances on snow and wet road surfaces.

Continental tyres with runflat technology for continued safe driving

The WinterContact TS 850 P for the Mercedes EQA comes as standard with Continental runflat technology, which is available for the EcoContact 6 on an optional basis as well. In case of tyre damage, it prevents the sidewall from getting trapped between the road and the rim, in which case the tyre can slip off. Drivers can therefore continue driving for up to 50 miles to get to a garage.

In addition, Continental also offers a wide range of summer, winter and all-season replacement tyres in many countries. These include various test winning tyre models such as the AllSeasonContact.

Carmakers throughout the world rely on Continental as a leading tyre manufacturer. Almost every third vehicle produced in Europe comes off the line with Continental tyres. Continental supplies six of the world’s ten most successful makers of electric vehicles with tyres ex works.

The following products and sizes have been approved for the Mercedes EQA as standard equipment in many countries including the UK:


EcoContact 6, 235/55 R18 104T; 235/50 R19 103T; 235/45 R20 100T

WinterContact TS 850 P, 215/60 R18 98T
