In case of an emergency braking or when the service brake fails, pushing the EPB button can bring the vehicle to a standstill.
Hot brakes lead to a loss in clamping force in mechanical parking brakes. But with EPB, roll-off protection monitors and controls the clamping force in order to ensure a safe parking brake condition irrespective of temperature and friction loss. This prevents the vehicle from rolling off even under extreme temperatures. This provides important added safety especially in mountainous regions.
