Continental continues to expand its localization efforts in India. Continental’s plant in Manesar reached a milestone of producing one million speed sensor units a month. The speed sensor product portfolio of Continental includes wheel, engine and transmission speed sensors for passenger vehicles, while for 2-Wheelers it is wheel and engine speed sensors. Continental is significantly increasing its capacity to produce speed sensors at its plant to meet the growing demand caused by recent safety and emission legislations in India.
“Continental has been an ardent advocate and promoter of integrated road safety technologies across different markets. On-road fatalities in India are significantly higher, as compared to other markets. For this reason, it becomes critical for us to have a strong focus on road safety technologies for the region. With our wide portfolio of safety technologies, we are supporting OEMs in India and in global market to achieve optimal level of vehicle safety”, says Prashanth Doreswamy, Market Head of Continental India and Managing Director, Continental Automotive, India.
Explaining further, “Our localizing approach has worked well for us. In the last few years we have been steadily increasing our capacity to meet the growing demand for integrated safety technologies in India. Safety legislation and increased awareness among the consumers have been the key drivers for the uptake of the safety technologies in India”.
