About Steering Column Electrics

Most modern motor vehicles are built with a power assisted steering system. This is invaluable, especially in heavier, less manoeuvrable vehicles, where the effort required to steer the car would be excessive without it. For many years the majority of power assisted steering systems used hydraulic pressure to aid the operation of the steering wheel. However, electric power is now gaining considerable popularity as an alternative means of managing the power steering and the traditional mechanical steering rack is now being powered by an electric steering column.

A basic electric steering system will consist of a pinion shaft, a steering torque sensor, a rack and pinion housing, a ball screw mechanism, a steering rack, a drive belt and an electric motor to provide the power. 

Many manufacturers and owners take the view that this technology has three main advantages over hydraulic systems. Firstly, it is felt that an electric steering column provides greater control. Secondly, it increases fuel efficiency. Finally, it is considered to be friendlier to the environment.

Furthermore, unlike the conventional hydraulically-assisted power steering system, electrical steering column systems have the capability of automatically reacting to motoring situations such as velocity, road conditions and even the manner of driving. There is also a reduced load on the engine and the system has greater reliability and durability.

Jaguar trivia

  • The 2014 Superbowl advert for Jaguar featured Brit actors Ben Kingsley and Mark Strong, with a terrified Tom Hiddlestone hanging out of a helicopter as it flew across London. Not many people know that the driver used for this advert was The Stig (Ben Collins).
  • The iconic Jaguar ornament on the bonnet isn't included as standard anymore. Lots of people seem to think it's illegal, but they're not, as long as the ornament is spring-loaded. The jaguar ornament is known in-house as The Leaper, and you can still buy the Leaper as an after-purchase accessory.
  • Jaguar was bought out by Ford in 1990, but they didn't really capitalise on the investment. Eventually, Ford sold Jaguar to the current owners, the Indian company Tata Motors.
  • The Jaguar XJ has that luxurious leather interior, but did you know that all of that leather comes very specifically from Scottish Angus Bulls? Bulls don't get stretch marks, and they don't get bitten much by mosquitoes either. Belly and neck skin becomes the dash and door finish, while the backbone and the rump are used for the seats.
  • Steve McQueen was a huge fan of the Jaguar XKSS and even found himself with two driving bans because of his passion for driving fast. He was one of the few people to ever drive an XKSS because only 16 were ever made! McQueen did eventually sell his car, but regretted it immediately and paid more to get it back. The car is now owned by US TV host Jay Leno.
