Title: VEHICLE TORSION BEAM AXLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a vehicle torsion beam axle comprising two longitudinal links, a transverse profiled element that connects the longitudinal links, and a drive unit which drives, via an input shaft, at least one of the wheels guided by the torsion beam axle and which is mounted in the immediate vicinity of the common axis of rotation of the wheels in the design position. The drive unit is mounted on the vehicle body in such a way as to be rotatable about an axis running parallel to the common axis of rotation of the wheels, and said degree of rotational freedom is aided by a pivoted support.
