SEEWALD, Ill., November 18, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The electronically controlled damping system CVSAe from Tenneco (NYSE: TEN) will be used in the luxury and intelligent SUV Lynk & Co 09 of the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group. The Lynk & Co. 09 is offered as a mild hybrid (MHEV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) with all-wheel drive. This is the first Lynk & Co model for the Chinese market and the second from a Geely brand to use CVSAe technology. The first Geely vehicle to be equipped with CVSAe was the battery-electric Shooting Brake ZEEKR 001. Tenneco’s CVSAe technology offers optimal suspension damping properties in all driving situations and is used in more than 75 European car models.
Owners of this new SUV will experience superb ride and handling, including a greater sense of control, thanks to CVSAe technology, one of several suspension solutions available through Tenneco’s Monroe® Intelligent Suspension portfolio. CVSAe technology continuously adapts to changing road conditions based on data from multiple onboard sensors. An electronic control unit processes sensor inputs and independently adjusts the current input to the electro-hydraulic valve in each of the four dampers in the system. The driver can choose his preferred driving mode from comfort-intensive to sporty via a controller in the cabin.
“CVSAe is an excellent choice for automakers looking for market-proven intelligent chassis technology that can be precisely tailored to any vehicle model, yet is easy to implement and has extremely low power requirements,” says Henrik Johansson, Vice President and General Manager, Tenneco Advanced Suspension Technologies (AST).
In addition to the system’s dampers, Tenneco supplies control software and works closely with vehicle manufacturers.
CVSAe systems for Lynk & Co 09 are manufactured at the Tenneco AST facility in. manufactured Changzhou, China. To learn more about CVSAe and other Monroe intelligent suspension technologies, visit www.monrointelligentsuspension.com.
