The product release adds coverage to an additional 3.8 million vehicles.


Akebono Brake Corp. has expanded it lineup of ultra-premium disc-brake pads by eight: three ProACT and five EURO part numbers. 


Premium stainless hardware is included in the five parts that require it, and four of the EURO kits include an electronic wear sensor.

“This release includes ProACT brake pads for several Honda, Hyundai and Kia models, including the new CR-V, Optima and Sonata, but most importantly is a continued expansion of our award-winning EURO Line, adding coverage for BMW X1, X2, Land Rover Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Mini Cooper and Volvo S, V and XC90,” said Kirby Pruitt, product development manager, Akebono Brake Corp. “With this release, we added coverage to an additional 3.8 million vehicles – all late-model vehicle coverage. Last month, we released front pads for several Land Rovers; this month we added coverage for the rear.”
