Tenneco is supplying suspension components for the new Jaguar I-PACE all-electric luxury crossover SUV. The vehicle features Tenneco’s passive front and rear dampers and coil and air spring suspension modules.

“Our innovative suspension modules, like those featured on the new Jaguar I-PACE, are designed to meet each vehicle’s ride and handling targets as well as specific packaging requirements,” said Neville Rudd, senior vice president, Tenneco Global Ride Control. “These suspension modules incorporate designs and materials that offer important benefits for all-electric vehicles such as lightweighting, underbody space-savings and simplified vehicle integration.”

Reducing overall vehicle weight is critical to the efficient operation of electric powertrains, which can be heavier compared to traditional internal combustion engine powertrains, according to the company. 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).
