ZF Aftermarket Ups the Ante on TRW Braking for EVs

ZF Aftermarket has expanded its TRW brand offering for electric vehicles (EVs), adding master cylinders, brake discs, and calipers to its existing portfolio. This move solidifies TRW’s position as a one-stop shop for EV braking solutions, encompassing everything from Electronic Brake Boosters (EBBs) to discs and pads.

Original Quality Matters:

ZF Aftermarket emphasizes the importance of using original-quality parts for EV brake repairs. The unique design considerations for EVs require specific performance characteristics, particularly sensitivity for seamless transition between electric and hydraulic braking and durability for extended periods of non-use.

The new TRW additions cover a wide range of popular EV models, including:

  • Master Cylinder: Volkswagen MEB platform vehicles (ID.3, ID.4, ID.5, etc.)
  • Wheel Brake Cylinders: Opel Rocks-E, Renault Zoe & Twingo III, Skoda E-Citigo, VW E-Up, Peugeot 208 II, Smart Fourtwo & Forfour
  • Brake Calipers: Audi e-tron, BMW i3 & iX3, various Stellantis models (Citroën, Peugeot, Opel), Ford, Fiat, and Iveco EVs

Don’t Forget the Hoses:

ZF Aftermarket recommends replacing brake hoses alongside caliper replacements. Often overlooked, worn hoses can compromise brake performance and contaminate newly installed parts. TRW offers an extensive range of hoses for virtually all European vehicles, solidifying its position as a complete braking solution provider.

A Comprehensive Solution:

With this expansion, ZF Aftermarket provides workshops with a comprehensive range of TRW-brand components for servicing and repairing EV brakes. This commitment to quality and coverage ensures optimal safety and performance for EV owners.
