Akebono Brake Corporation is proud to announce that their ceramic brake pads are original equipment on the 2011 Motor Trend Car of the Year, the Chevrolet Volt.
 
“Since Akebono was the originator of ceramic brake-pad technology, we’ve had a reputation of having the smoothest, quietest, cleanest long-lasting brake pads,” commented Tommy Rivera, product development director for Akebono North America. “From the time we entered the Aftermarket in 2000, it was apparent there was a demand for our products. Our OE presence helped us establish our strong leadership in the Aftermarket and we are fortunate to have an innovative R& D department that helps us maintain this position.”
 
Akebono is the only manufacturer to offer application-specific brake pads for each vehicle model. This customization assists in the powerful braking precision demanded by consumers.
