ZF TRW will introduce Electric Park Brake technology in India through its Brakes India JV. Will start production in 2017.

ZF TRW, through its joint venture, Brakes India, has announced that it has won the first business award for  its Electric Park Brake (EPB) system in India. Launching with a major global vehicle manufacturer, the technology will start production in 2017, marking the first launch of its kind for the Indian market.

EPB is part of ZF TRW’s ongoing commitment to enhance overall brake system performance and driver safety and comfort. In addition to providing park brake functionality, EPB is a fully integral part of the brake system with features such as dynamic actuation and brake pad wear sensing and reduces the degradation associated with mechanical systems. The EPB also helps enhance safety in emergency situations with full four-wheel anti-lock functionality versus standard park brake that provides emergency braking only on the rear axle.
