Nexteer Automotive announced the Dongfeng Nexteer Steering Systems Co, Ltd joint venture with Dongfeng Motor Parts and Components Group Co Ltd starts mass production of Single Pinion Assist Electric Power Steering systems. Electric Power Steering uses an electric motor to assist driver steering. Nexteer's EPS hardware and software are developed concurrently and work together to connect the driver with the road taking into account driving dynamics and the operating environment. This "connection to the road" provides the driver with an experience consistent with the vehicle's brand (such as luxury, sport, etc.), while also giving important safety cues regarding road surface (such as icy, gravel, etc.).

Nexteer's EPS also enables Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) features, such as lane keeping, park assist, active return to center, traffic jam assist and more. For drivers of tomorrow, Nexteer's EPS systems share the same building blocks needed for future semi-automated and automated driving experiences.

Jun Li, Nexteer Global Vice President and Asia Pacific President said that "The start-of-production of the JV indicates an increasing alignment between two companies. We will be closer, faster and more focused on serving customers such as Dongfeng Motor Group, and we will further lay the solid foundation for Nexteer's strategy for long-term profitable growth.”
