Continental lines up as original equipment for MAN vehicles12 May 2014

MAN Truck & Bus is now fitting all new vehicles with Continental third-generation tyres as standard.

These includes the Conti EcoPlus HS3 for steer axles and the Conti EcoPlus HD3 for drive axles.

Both are designed for long-haul use and offer fuel savings of up to 1.9 litres per 100km, thanks to specially adjusted rubber compounds, new tread design, and reduced rolling resistance. The steer axle tyres also have improved grip for wet conditions and have a visual alignment indicator.

For buses and coaches – both MAN and Neoplan – the Conti Coach HA3 will now be fitted as an all-round tyre, with the Conti CityPlus HA3 for regional operations.

All third-generation Continental tyres are based on a retreadable premium carcass with reinforced steel cord beads and are regroovable. They feature a patented AirKeep inner liner to minimise creeping air loss.
