Self-leveling suspension

The concept

The self-leveling suspension on the rear axle assures a continuous ground clearance.

To do so, the height of the vehicle is measured by sensors at both rear wheels.

If the actual height deviates from the defined height, such as due to cargo in the vehicle, this difference is compensated very quickly. In addition, spring motions resulting from cornering or irregularities in the road surface are reduced to a minimum.

The system works automatically.
