Delphi Tapped for Global Hybrid Debut

Delphi will provide its high-performance 500bar GDI fuel system for Changan's hybrid launch in Q2 2024.

Delphi, a brand of PHINIA Inc. announced that it will provide its high-performance 500bar Gasoline Direct injection (GDi) fuel system to Changan Auto, a Chinese automotive manufacturer. 

The advanced system can significantly reduce particulate emissions and lower fuel consumption without requiring an expensive redesign of the engine, the company said. The 500bar fuel system will make its global debut as part of a Changan Auto hybrid vehicle launch set to take place in Q2.

“This is our first global mass-produced 500bar project. We are delighted to cooperate with Changan Auto, a leading player in the Chinese automobile market. Our high-pressure 500bar GDi fuel system provides customers with a cost-effective solution, which improves vehicle fuel economy and is designed with emissions reduction in mind. Together, we will champion the development of hybrid vehicles in China,” said Yang Hongyong, general manager of PHINIA Fuel Systems China.

“This innovative 500bar GDi fuel system boasts several key advancements designed to optimize engine performance and minimize emissions. An enhanced pressure vessel and improved fuel rail interface ensure consistent high-pressure fuel delivery. Moreover, a significant increase in electromagnetic force empowers injectors for more precise fuel metering and more stringent closed-loop control,” Delphi said.

It is expected that Changan Auto’s hybrid vehicles equipped with the 500bar GDi fuel system will be launched to the market in Q2 2024.
