OPTIMAL – The optimal choice for electric and hybrid vehicles



Over the last decade, modern cars have been getting bigger and heavier, which puts steering and suspension components under ever greater stress. This is recognised with the charging elements for hybrid and electric vehicles. For over 30 years the OPTIMAL range has gained a reputation for uncompromising engineering, with all parts manufactured in line with OE methods, using quality materials and equipment. These technical standards prevent spare parts from failing prematurely.
