Brussels, Belgium -- Tenneco Inc. said it has been awarded new ride control business from Volkswagen. The company will supply its Continuously Controlled CES shock absorbers as a component of Volkswagen's Adaptive Chassis Control DCC on the new Volkswagen Passat CC.
Tenneco initially introduced its CES shock absorbers in 2003 and is now adding larger volume platforms. By 2011, the company anticipates expanding its share of the global electronic suspension market by four times.
Tenneco's CES shock absorbers, developed in conjunction with valve supplier Ã–hlins Racing, eliminate the need to compromise between high levels of ride comfort and high levels of handling and performance. They are integrated into a system that continuously adjusts the shock absorbers based on driver inputs, road conditions and vehicle dynamics like speed and cornering. With valve adjustments that occur within 10 milliseconds and a broad damping force range, these shock absorbers are some of the most advanced electronic suspension components available today.
