The MK C1® is Continental’s latest innovative brake system and in production since 2016. It makes a major contribution to safe and dynamic driving, as well as energy efficiency. Thanks to the “brake-by-wire” design, it enables recuperation of braking energy in a much wider range than standard regenerative brake systems, reducing CO2 emissions of hybrid electric vehicles by around 5 g/km and extending the electric range of all battery powered vehicles with savings of around 30% regenerative energy compared to a non-simulator brake system. This measurement has been made according to the WLTP (Worldwide harmonized Light vehicle Test Procedure) and confirmed by the TÜV, a German Technical Inspection Association. The innovative “One-Box” system integrates the tandem master cylinder (TMC), brake booster and control systems (ABS and ESC) into a single compact and weight-saving (approximately 30%) module. Continental’s MK C1® can build up braking pressure in 150 ms (time-to-lock), which is twice as fast as conventional systems today.
