Vitesco Technologies (known as Continental Powertrain until autumn 2019), headquartered in Regensburg, is a German automotive supplier for drivetrain and powertrain technologies. Vitesco Technologies is a business area of Continental AG[1] and develops solutions for electric drive as well as internal combustion engines.


On January 1, 2019, Continental Powertrain was carved out from the Continental AG[2][3][4]. As part of the overall restructuring of Continental AG, Continental Powertrain was formed as the first of three new group sectors. Together with Continental Automotive Technologies and Continental Rubber Technologies, the three sectors make up the new structure of Continental since January 2020.[5] The brand name was changed from Continental Powertrain to Vitesco Technologies. The new name was officially introduced on October 1, 2019.[6][7] The new brand name originates from the Latin word “vita” (life). With this, the company aims to express its ability to react quickly and flexibly to the changing demands of the industry.[3][8]
