Delphi Technologies is launching a new service solution for high performance, fuel efficient gasoline direct injection (GDi) system at Automechanika Frankfurt later this month.
The comprehensive programme consists of pumps and injectors fitted as OE to more than 2.1 million popular French vehicles.
Other important applications will be added in 2019.
It also includes electronic and hydro-mechanical diagnostic tooling, prototype test equipment and training.
With the GDi new vehicle market expected to grow by more than ten per cent annually through 2026, the programme gives garages the parts, tools and know-how they need to tap into this high-growth, high-profit market.
Delphi Technologies invests in GDi
The company will also exhibit its industry-first Multec® 14 (M14) 350-bar pressure injection system at the show.
This next generation of injectors can reduce automotive particle emissions from GDi technology by up to 70 per cent.
In 2017, Delphi Technologies launched the latest generation 350-bar GDi system with VW in Europe and has programmes with other major automakers in China, Korea and North America ramping up in 2018 and 2019.
The new system features a family of injectors, M14, that increase injection pressure from the industry norm of 200 bar to 350 bar, resulting in a 40 per cent increase in compression performance and 30 per cent faster injection speeds.
This technology positions the company to help automakers meet both Euro 6d and China 6 emissions standards with a single solution.
“Preferred option to help meet tough emissions regulations”
Alex Ashmore, president at Delphi Technologies Aftermarket, said: “Whilst the technology has been in OE production for some years, it is fast becoming the preferred option to help meet tough emissions regulations.
“Today more than a third of light duty vehicles produced in the world are fitted with a GDi fuel system, and this is expected to gain further share, growing at around eight per cent per annum for the next ten years, meaning there will be an increasing flow of vehicle owners seeking high-quality independent repairs.
“As an OE supplier, we understand the challenges of maintaining and repairing these highly advanced, high pressure systems.
“And as an aftermarket supplier, we understand how important it is for garages to be able to do this quickly and efficiently.
“With OE-quality parts, complemented by diagnostics, test equipment training and support, our new GDi service programme will give garages, factors and distributors the support they need to capitalise on this fast-growing market.”
