DETROIT--TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. is launching its electrically powered steering-rack drive system on the 2010 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan cars.

Electric steering uses 7 percent less energy than a conventional hydraulic system, decreasing fuel consumption and reducing carbon dioxide emissions. It also eliminates such components as the steering pump, pulley belt, reservoir, and hydraulic lines.

TRW, of suburban Detroit, makes steering, suspension, braking, engine, and occupant-restraint components and systems.
