Monroe says the new Volkswagen ID.3 comes with the option of being fitted with an advanced semi-active suspension from DRiV that senses and adapts to changing road conditions for a more controlled and comfortable ride.
DRiV is a Tenneco Inc. division and leading global provider of aftermarket and OE ride performance products and services.
Volkswagen’s new electric vehicle can be equipped with a Continuously Variable Semi-Active suspension with external valve (CVSAe), one of several electronic suspension technologies available through DRiV’s Monroe Intelligent Suspension portfolio.
The system senses and continuously adapts to changing road and driving conditions via four electronically controlled dampers.
An electronic control unit (ECU) processes various sensor inputs and controls the electronic valve on each damper. The driver can select a preferred driving mode, either ‘Comfort’ or ‘Sport’, to experience the desired ride and handling characteristics.
The ID.3 is the first vehicle built on Volkswagen’s new modular all-electric platform.
CVSAe suspension technology from DRiV is featured in more than 40 popular vehicle models.
