Among the mass segment manufacturers, GM has been using electric parking brake on select models since 2009, PSA and VW since 2008, Mazda Since 2015 and Ford Since 2009.



The electric parking brake market was earlier driven by weight savings (which can range from 10lbs in compact cars to 20lbs in pickup trucks), cockpit enhancement and now vehicle electrification.


In terms of interior space, the absence of lever frees up space, which can be used to accommodate a bigger storage space or semi-autonomous feature in future, especially when vehicle refresh/new generation launch timelines have been declining globally.


A major issue plaguing the electric parking brake market globally is the amount of recalls issued in past 2-3 years owing to faulty gear, circuit board and software. The issues are particularly pronounced in the MY 2015-2016 manufactured vehicles affecting 5 or more platforms and ~ 0.8 Million vehicles.
