Traction Plus by Fiat
The Traction Plus™ is a recently new system developed by FCAgroup. Traction Plus™ is integrated in the two front wheels. It’s an electronic differential lock system which is very useful to overcome special driving conditions like snow, heavy rain and mud.
What this system does is using the ESP and ABS systems to slower the wheel that has lost traction and is slipping. An open differential will only send power to the slipping wheel and due to that the car will come to a standstill. Traction Plus™ slows down the slipping wheel and causes the differential to power the other wheel that otherwise would not get powered due to the open differential construction.
In short: the system is sending power to the wheel with the most grip and is braking the other wheel. The Traction Plus™ system is actually very similar to ESP but it works smoother and works at lower speeds and has several advantages compared to other differential system. Traction Plus™ doesn’t affect the fuel consumption and maintenance costs and is competitively priced.
