Tenneco Inc. is supplying suspension components for the new Jaguar I-PACE battery-electric luxury crossover SUV. The vehicle features Tenneco’s passive front and rear dampers and coil and air spring suspension modules, engineered to improve ride performance and stability.
Reducing overall vehicle weight is critical to the efficient operation of electric powertrains, which can be heavier compared to traditional internal combustion engine powertrains. Tenneco’s suspension modules include plastic spring seats, an aluminum top mount and other lightweight components that can help offset the weight of electric motors and batteries, offering improved vehicle performance.
Tenneco will supply the vehicle’s suspension components and modules from its manufacturing facilities in Sint-Truiden, Belgium (front passive dampers); Hodkovice, Czech Republic (rear passive dampers and rear modules); and Birmingham, U.K. (front air & coil module assembly).
