Trelleborg Automotive, a Swedish auto parts supplier, recently announced that the company has introduced a new type of brake pedal, made of metal and fiberglass, which can greatly cut costs while reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
According to Trelleborg Motors, compared with traditional metal brake pedals, the new brake pedal can be 30%-50% lighter due to its lighter materials.
The company’s product engineer Loic Lefebvre said that car manufacturers have been looking for lighter plastic materials instead of expensive, heavy metal parts. The most important thing is that lightweight materials can reduce the total weight of the car by 10% while reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 5%. . In addition, the new pedal also eliminates the need for stamping and welding processes for metal brake pedals, which ultimately reduces production time.
