tyre manufacturer and automotive supplier Continental has started production
and distribution of radial truck tyres in the Indian market. With an initial
annual production capacity of 220,000 radial truck tyres, a dealer network of
more than 1,400 outlets and sales and customer service teams in more than 70
cities across India, Continental has taken the next step in expanding its reach
in India after acquiring Indian tyre manufacturer Modi in 2011.
initial radial tyre product portfolio for India covers the Goods, People, and
Construction segments. In the Goods segment, the HSR2 steer tyre and the HDR2
drive tyre offer strong reliability and high mileage. For the People segment,
Continental launched a dedicated coach tyre, which stands out through its
smooth ride, good mileage and directional stability. The high-tech construction
tyre HSX2 and HDX2 offer excellent durability and strong off-road performance.
Continental radial truck tyres into the Indian market is a momentous occasion
for us. India is the second largest market for truck tyres in the Asia-Pacific
region (APAC) and we strongly believe that our premium technology products,
manufactured locally and distributed through our Indian market organisation,
will make Continental a preferred partner in the tyre replacement and original
equipment business,” stated Dr. Andreas Esser, Head of the Commercial Vehicle
Tires business at Continental.
