The high fitment rate for display vehicles at the Qatar Motor Show is testament to the popularity of Continental tyres: Continental tyres were to be seen on the display vehicles of almost all European manufacturers. Even the tyres on the highly acclaimed new arrivals in the sector, such as the Audi R8 e-tron, the A3 e-tron, the Mercedes V-class hybrid, and the VW Golf hybrid.
Same story on the luxury sedans from Rolls Royce, the off-road specialists from Land Rover, and the e-cars from Tesla. Less spectacular passenger cars were also fitted with Continental tyres – Opel's new cars in the small and compact class, vehicles from Peugeot and Renault, including the new SUV Kadjar, and the new Superb from Skoda. In addition to the European companies, visitors interested in tyres also found Continental tyres in use by Asian manufacturers. For example, Hyundai put the new ix 20 and Suzuki the S-Cross on tyres marked with the horse.
Continental ME can’t miss the opportunity to be there represented by Alfardan Sports Motors who unveiled the Ferrari 488 Spider for the first time in Qatar. Also featuring at Alfardan Motors were the limited edition BMW 7 Series Solitaire, the most expensive BMW ever built, and the regional premier of the BMW M2.
