The newly launched second-generation Volvo XC90 is equipped with SKF wheel hub bearing units, for both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive
The new XC90 is the first car to be built on Volvo Cars’ new platform, Scalable Product Architecture. With Volvo Cars’ new architecture the focus is on weight and stiffness, offering designers more flexibility in terms of proportion and design as well as incorporating innovative safety technology.
SKF’s wheel hub bearing units are optimized to meet the high performance requirements specified by Volvo Cars. The hub bearing unit is fitted with a low-friction seal, which shows an improved performance under changing road and weather conditions and prolongs the life of the unit. The hub bearing unit is also designed for optimized weight-to-performance ratio, supporting the goal of reducing the overall fuel consumption of the car.
