Brakes
EBS (Electronically-controlled Brake System) provides superior response, performance and brake feel, while providing access to a number of handy features. EBS is now available for disc brakes.

Volvo Dynamic Steering
Active steering system with torque overlay. Delivers more steering force at low speeds, reduces steering kicks and keeps the steering wheel straight forward when braking on split friction. The steering wheel returns automatically to neutral position both when driving forward and when reversing.

EBS medium

EBS status control
EBS status monitoring via the TEA2+ vehicle electronic system and Volvo Tech Tool.

Hill start aid
The brakes are only released once there is sufficient engine torque to propel the vehicle forward.

Lining wear analysis
Brake lining warning – calculates the remaining mileage available with the current brake linings.

Automatic parking brake release
The parking brake is released when the driver pushes the accelerator pedal and a gear is selected.

Additional options(Only EU6)

Stretch Brake
Enables the driver to request pulse braking of the trailer. The brake is then automatically activated and the risk of jack-knifing is minimised.

ESC (Electronic Stability Control)
The brake stability system applies the brakes individually on each wheel, thereby providing stability for the entire vehicle combination and counteracting jack-knifing, rollover and trailer swing.
