Did you know?
Almost 1 in 3 cars in Europe is delivered with tyres from Continental.

As one of the world’s leading safety experts, Continental has set itself a target: to evolve from ‘best in braking’ to zero fatalities, zero injuries and zero accidents. This is the company’s ambitious ‘Vision Zero’ pledge, starting with unrivalled tyre safety expertise and broadening into other technologies the company has developed including ABS, ESC, EBA and others.
Continental Tyres’ partnership with the Irish Car of the Year awards is part of that commitment to safety. By showcasing the best cars and vans, the awards help Irish motorists make informed decisions about which vehicles are best and safest for Irish driving conditions.

“The choices of the Irish Car of the Year jury are a great help in informing Irish consumers as to the bewildering array of high tech vehicles that are launched in Ireland each year. Continental is delighted to be associated with the Irish Car of the Year awards.”
