Thanks to its reduced rolling resistance, the Conti.eContact has received the top rating for fuel efficiency. In addition, it boasts improved grip and stable handling.
The tyre is able to optimally diffuse and drain water away, leading to shorter braking distances and better handling in the wet, as well as better wet performance even at higher speeds.
Thanks to the tyre's unique design, air turbulence is easily avoided and less energy is lost when deflecting or rebounding. All this leads to reduced fuel consumption and optimised rolling resistance.
A selection of our Conti.eContact range come equipped with ContiSilentTM Technology. The technology absorbs vibrations inside the tyre, meaning that the interior noise is significantly reduced.
Tyres with high wet grip performance (A or B graded) have shorter braking distances on wet roads and are, therefore, safer in the rain. As with fuel efficiency, the D grade isn’t used and there are no plans to use G.
Tyres account for up to 20% of your vehicle’s fuel consumption so, if you want to get more miles per tank of fuel, you should choose tyres with a high fuel efficiency rating. You will also lower your CO2 emissions. It comes down to rolling resistance i.e. the energy lost when a tyre is moving. The lower the rolling resistance, the less energy is lost and the lower your fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The difference between an A-rated tyre and a G-rated tyre could be as much as 6 litres per 625 miles.
This is the external noise made by the tyre and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tyres.
