Car wheel end
17 April 2013
The new SKF Low Friction Hub Bearing Unit, an energy efficient wheel end for cars, is said to reduce friction by more than 20% compared to previous generations of SKF standard hub units, and provide CO2 savings of up to 0.6 g per km.
When based on an annual mileage of 14,500km, the saving is 9 kg CO2 per year. This equates to a reduction of 9000 tonnes of CO2 per year if one million cars were equipped with the SKF solution. The SKF Low Friction Hub Bearing Unit is included in the SKF BeyondZero portfolio.
