Chassis technology today is one of the key functional areas responsible for overall performance in terms of vehicle dynamics, safety and fuel efficiency, and these functions can be seen as the key contributor to competitive advantage.

At its simplest the chassis can been defined as the frame of the vehicle plus its running gear' consisting of steering, suspension, wheels and brakes. However, today this description misses an essential point in that the chassis now is a complex set of components that are responsible for the vast majority of the ride, handling, comfort and safety. Furthermore, through the use of advanced materials and systems it has a significant role to play in reducing CO2 output.
