Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) (All)

What’s the Benefit?

EBD helps optimize braking performance for a more enjoyable driving experience.

 

The Feature:

EBD helps ensure that proportionate braking forces are applied to each brake. 

  • During braking, most of the vehicle’s weight shifts to the front wheels, giving them the greatest amount of traction in most braking situations. 
  • In order to avoid unnecessary ABS cycling during a non-emergency stop, EBD uses the ABS sensors to detect rear-wheel lockup. 
  • It then controls ABS solenoids to reduce braking force to the rear wheels, leaving maximum braking force in the front, thereby maximizing overall braking force and controllability.
