Case Study

Freno - Sweden

Anders Sjölund, engineering and managing director of the firm, designed and brought to market the concept of the VW Caddy Maxi lowering air-suspension under the name “Bee-Free”. 

Their very close relationship with VW in terms of successful vehicle designs and solutions earned them full VW approval for the conversion of the VW Caddy as the new “Class 4”   WAV vehicle of choice in Sweden.  The vehicle consists of a lowered floor and a low angle of entry facilitated by Drive-Rite Intelliride electronic lowering air suspension. 

The suspension fabrication was the design of Freno.  DriveRite designed the specific airsprings to offer the correct load and comfort coupled with the automatic levelling lowering technology provided by the Intelliride electronics and ECU. 

The Freno-DriveRite partnership has existed for over 10 years and has been instrumental in providing comfort solutions to the disabled and elderly in Sweden and beyond.
