- Aluminium running gear: pneumatic suspension coupled with roll stabilisation brings a new level of SUV comfort to the Touareg
- Roll stabilisation: New Touareg is the first Volkswagen to feature electromechanical anti-roll bars
- 48 volts: “Supercaps” build up high voltage extremely quickly in order to power the electric motors for the anti-roll bars
Technology in the new Touareg – Part 3: High-tech running gear with innovative roll stabilisation
The high-tech running gear in the new Touareg sets new standards for comfort and agility in the SUV segment: The most advanced version of the running gear, which is made largely of lightweight aluminium, features a combination of innovative four-corner pneumatic suspension with adaptive electronic damping control and – for the first time at Volkswagen - a completely newly developed electromechanical active roll compensation system (eAWS). The eAWS features active anti-roll bars which use electric motors and a 48-volt system to adapt instantly to the driving situation, bringing a level of agility and ride comfort that is practically unmatched by any other SUV.
