KAYABA GIVES NEW GENERATION OF COMPACT CARS ITS SHOCK TREATMENT08.05.2005
Kayaba supplies shock absorbers for PSA Peugeot Citroen Group and Toyota Motor Corporation
Kayaba has increased its original equipment (OE) business with PSA Citroen and Toyota by supplying shock absorbers for the Citroen C1, Peugeot 107 and Toyota Aygo.
The three cars share the same platform and will be manufactured at the Toyota Peugeot Citroen Automobiles (TPCA) plant in Kolin, Czech Republic.
Kayaba’s shock absorbers will initially be supplied from the company’s factory near Pamplona, Spain, its key production base for Kayaba in Europe. Supply will then change to its purpose-built factory in the Czech Republic, when production begins in 2006.
PSA and Toyota have jointly developed and designed these new B segment cars in just three years. Although the cars feature many of the same structural components, they have distinct bodies and equipment levels reflecting the unique design cues from each of the individual marques.
