With larger vehicle bodies, offering better impact absorption and complex axle designs delivering more predictable and precise handling, modern vehicles are often subjected to a weight penalty. Recognising excess weight as a hindrance to fuel efficiency, Boge has been weight-optimising suspension components including their range o aluminium shock absorbers for several years. This is in effort to help conserve natural resources, lower fuel consumption and reduce emissions.
No longer exclusive to cutting-edge motorsport development, weight-saving aluminium housings are now available for a number of popular BMW applications such as the E60/61 5-Series and E65/66 7-Series, with a limited range for the E39 5-Series from Boge.
This development is becoming increasingly important with the rising popularity of hybrid and full electric vehicles, where lightweight construction can significantly extend driving range.
