Continental except of tire manufacturing, is also experimenting with the future of motoring and they now present the New Wheel Concept, a wheel that incorporates the braking system and is intended solely for use in electric cars.
The concept wheel optimizes braking of electric cars, while reducing their weight. In addition it reduces maintenance costs and since the aluminum disc is designed to last for the entire life of the car, you will only need to change the brake pads. The wheel consists of two aluminum, concentric sections. The company did not indicate if and when this innovative wheel will pass into production.
