pr_2014_10_08_trailer_innovation_price_uv-dataContinental achieves second place in the environment category of the “Trailer Innovation” awards at IAA, for its new trailer tire Conti EcoPlus HT3. The international industry award was awarded for the 7th time at the 65th International Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover. The award honors outstanding ideas and new products from the trailer and bodybuilding sectors. Continental, the international tire manufacturer and automotive supplier excelled in the “Environment” category. The prize is awarded every two years by eleven renowned European transport magazines together with the VDA, the German Association of the Automotive Industry.

Dr. Marko Multhaupt, Head of Sales and Marketing Bus and Truck Tire Replacement Business for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, sees the award as confirmation of the strategy that Continental is pursuing in developing the Conti EcoPlus tire range. “The Conti EcoPlus range is designed to provide the highest fuel efficiency and a long tire life. In a truck-semitrailer combination, around 60% of the rolling resistance is attributed to the trailer tires, so optimizing the rolling resistance of these tires delivers the greatest economic benefit to the carrier. In comparison to previous tires, the rolling resistance of the Conti EcoPlus HT3 has been reduced by 26%,” he said.
