LONDON – Delphi Technologies, a global provider of aftermarket service solutions, has added to its highly-proven braking program in Europe. In 2019 the company launched more than 130 new brake pads and discs for popular new vehicles, including a growing market of Asian applications and hybrid and electric cars.
Fitted to an additional 19 million vehicles, the company now offers more than 97 percent coverage on brake discs and 98.58 percent on pads, in Europe. The latest introductions, on top of an already extensive line-up, will allow independent garages to meet the needs of a rapidly evolving vehicle parc with the very highest quality replacement parts, for fast, money-making repairs.
Quick off the mark for new vehicle applications
Delphi Technologies is quick to bring the right parts to the aftermarket, in the shortest possible timeframe.
Delphi First to Market Brake Pads for New VW Golf
For pads, one of the first critical items to be replaced, that typically means within six months of vehicle launch, 12 months for discs. Last year, as an example, it launched new components for the Range Rover Evoque, Volvo S60, BMW 7 series and Mercedes B-class.
“We’re particularly proud of our many first-to-market applications,” commented James Tibbert, EMEA Marketing Director, Delphi Technologies Aftermarket. “By being first on vehicles such as the Audi Q8 and Toyota Supra, Land Rover Defender and Volkswagen Golf MK8 the independent aftermarket can access the repair opportunity on the latest vehicles even sooner. As well as generating additional revenue from a best-practice, OE-quality service, garages will be primed to lock in future high-value repairs too.”
Fast-growing service opportunity on Asian vehicles
To meet the rapidly growing demand for replacement parts, the company is extending its line-up for Japanese and Korean applications. The expanded range includes more than 2,600 parts (the whole braking range for Asian vehicle makers) fitted to popular vehicles such as Mazda 3, Hyundai i30 Fastback, Nissan Qashqai and Toyota Corolla, and covers over 99 percent of the European parc on pads and 97.7 percent on discs.
Leading the charge on hybrid and electric vehicles Delphi Technologies is also introducing new product lines to support the rapidly growing hybrid and electric (HEV) market.
Leveraging its expertise as a pioneer in propulsion technologies, solutions and services, coupled with a rich heritage as a leading braking manufacturer, the company already covers more than 95 percent of the European HEV parc on pads, and 93 percent on discs.
