Continental India Produces 50 Million Wheel Speed Sensors

Leading auto component maker Continental Automotive India has achieved a key milestone of producing 50 million wheel speed sensors at its Manesar plant.

Continental has been progressively manufacturing Wheel Speed Sensors at its Manesar plant since 2010. The localisation efforts substantially benefited from the safety regulations introduced in April 2019 mandating ABS in all the passenger cars, and 2-wheelers upwards of 125cc increased the demand for wheel speed sensors.

The recent milestone reflects its ongoing commitment towards Vision Zero: zero fatalities, zero injuries, zero crashes, supporting OEMs with localised products of the global quality standard at an affordable cost, the company said in a release.

The localisation efforts substantially benefited from the safety regulations introduced in April 2019, mandating ABS in all passenger cars and 2-wheelers upwards of 125cc caused a spike in demand for wheel speed sensors.

In August 2019, the company had reached a similar production milestone, achieving one million speed sensors a month.

Sukhdeep Sandhu, head of the Passive Safety and Sensorics (PSS) business unit, Continental Automotive India, said, “At Continental, we have a rich history associated with vehicle safety. Over the years, we have introduced several safety-critical products that have positioned us as pioneers of vehicle safety technologies. The road fatalities in India are record high. We have a critical role in bringing innovative integrated safety technologies to curtail on-road fatalities to a drastic extent.”

“With our standardised processes and systems, OEMs are greatly benefiting from our localisation initiative. We deliver quality products at an affordable cost with the support of our local development and manufacturing ecosystem. From design, prototyping, validation, and production, the business unit demonstrates product competence and contributes to the road safety value chain,” added Sandhu.

Ronan Le Roy, head of the global Segment Sensors and Subsystems within the Passive Safety and Sensorics (PSS) business unit, Continental said: “The Passive Safety and Sensorics business unit in India is a perfect example for ‘in the market, for the market,’ a systematic strategy that we follow. Supplying to local market aside, we are also exporting our products to Japan, ASEAN, and European markets.”
