Brake Assist

With an electronic braking system, brake assist helps the driver achieve maximum retardation in an emergency stop.

Experience shows that in stressful situations drivers often believe that they apply the brakes fully, yet there is more braking power available. This system, which is integrated with EBS, supports the driver by applying additional brake pressure, and by making full use of all available friction. Similar technologies have been in use on passenger cars for several years, and have proven equally effective for large transport, municipal and emergency vehicles.
