Start Improving Safety

The Lightning Hybrids ERS can improve the safety of your fleet. Faster acceleration makes it easier and safer to merge into busy traffic, and the ERS works like a brake retarder, controlling your speed on long downgrades and protecting your brakes from over-heating and fading (read more…).

The ERS has been designed to disengage automatically if wheel slippage is detected, which means that in icy or slippery conditions the vehicle’s traction control will operate normally. And in the case of an emergency stop, the ERS works in parallel with the standard brakes, allowing ABS to do its job while also in some cases reducing the overall stopping distance of the vehicle.
