About Us

Powertrain. Energy for Your Drive.

Safe, eco-friendly driving with your own vehicle – arrive relaxed at your destination. Few things fascinate people around the world like the issue of mobility. At the same time, mobility today is undergoing fundamental changes. Continental Powertrain is laying the groundwork for these changes in the drive technology area.

We are one of the leading developers and manufacturers of solutions for efficient combustion engines. We are advancing development in terms of power increases in injection, turbochargers, transmission control units, sensor technology, actuators and exhaust after-treatment.
 
However, the future of drive technology has already begun: We are pioneers in the field of efficient system technology and economical vehicle integration in electric vehicles using electric power as an additional energy source. Our mobility solutions span the entire breadth of the vehicle market: Using intelligent principles such as scalability and our ability to combine solutions, we cover everything from two-wheeled vehicles to passenger cars and a wide variety of commercial vehicles – both electric and with combustion engines.
 
Both fields of innovation ultimately pursue the same goal: Lowering CO2 and emissions. This is the goal pursued by the Powertrain Division in the five solution areas electrification, connected energy management, combustion, exhaust after-treatment and drivetrain efficiency. This is also mirrored in the work of Powertrain´s five Business Units Engine Systems, Fuel & Exhaust Management, Hybrid Electric Vehicles, Sensors & Actuators as well as Transmission.

  • Fuel & Exhaust Management
    For less exhaust emission despite growing vehicle density our products for Exhaust Management are in charge.
     

    Fuel Exhaust Management

    When it comes to fuel, the only task we can't take away from the driver is filling up. Our products for Fuel Managemant take care of the rest. And for less exhaust emission despite growing vehicle density our products for Exhaust Management are in charge.

    Our range of products includes fuel delivery modules and their components like fuel level sensors, fuel pumps and electronics for demand controlled fuel supply in the segment Fuel Management as well as catalysts, engine mounted emission aftertreatment and SCR dosing systems in the segment Exhaust management.
     
    The modularity of our components allows us to react flexibly to the different demands of vehicle manufacturers. Our strongly focused development, together with our partners, contributes to saving time and money.
  • Hybrid Electric Vehicle
    Powertrain electrification comprises a wide spectrum of applications, ranging from micro-hybrids over mild and full hybrids up to pure electric vehicles.
     

    Hybrid Electric Vehicles

    Business Unit Hybrid Electric Vehicle provides the main components for drivetrain electrification in hybrid and electric vehicles.
    Development and production take place at locations in Europe, Asia and USA, so that the specific requirements of the regional markets can be answered in the best possible manner.
    Electrical machines, power electronics and power net systems are available in various performance classes, ranging from 12V over 48V and up to 450V.

    Electrification tailored to fit
     
    Powertrain electrification comprises a wide spectrum of applications, ranging from micro-hybrids over mild and full hybrids up to pure electric vehicles. Continental has developed the main components in various designs and performance classes. The higher the degree of electrification, the greater the gain in efficiency and reduction of fuel consumption will be.
