Active Hood Lifters

Active hood lifters aims to mitigate head impact to hard structures beneath the hood i.e. engine, suspension tower battery and more.

凯发登录The active hood lifter use pyro technique in order to quickly lift the rear edge of hood in case of a pedestrian impact. The lift of the bonnet edge creates an additional distance to the hard structures in the motor compartment and also absorb some energy from the impact. Active hood lifters reduce head injuries and are important to save more lives.
