Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

Electronic Stability Control

ESC provides industry-leading comfort and pedal feel / pulsation with long-life durability.

ZF ESC systems combine ABS and traction control with a lateral stability control function. ESC systems help to control and maintain the lateral stability of the vehicle. If a potential loss of vehicle control is sensed, ESC automatically applies brake pressure to the appropriate wheel(s) and, if necessary, cuts engine throttle to help bring the vehicle back in line with the driver’s intended path. Further noise reduction is also obtained with the high frequency motor speed control option.
