Hannover, May 11. 2015. The international tire manufacturer Continental is one of the major suppliers for MAN and is strengthening its long-standing partnership with the truck and bus manufacturer. Conti EcoPlus tires from Continental’s Generation 3 truck tires are standard fitment on the highly fuel efficient long-haul vehicle MAN TGX EfficientLine 2. Furthermore, MAN adds Conti Hybrid as well as Conti Scandinavia truck tires in all standard sizes to its original fitment portfolio.
“We have had a long-standing partnership with MAN for many years now. Thus, we are very proud that our Conti EcoPlus tires are contributing positively to the fuel economy of the new TGX EfficientLine 2,” emphasizes Peter Matzke, Head of OE Truck Tires at Continental. He adds: “We are also very excited that MAN has adopted our Conti Hybrid and Conti Scandinavia product lines for original fitment on their vehicles.”
The strong partnership of both companies was also demonstrated in late March, when Continental took part in the MAN Trucknology® Days with an information booth. With more than 230 vehicles and participants from all over the world, the international event proved to be an ideal platform for customer engagement and in order to present the advantages of the Conti Hybrid product line.
