Delphi Technologies Aftermarket is expanding its gasoline direct injection (GDi) full-service solution for Hyundai and Kia vehicles. The program consists of pumps and injectors fitted as original equipment (OE) to more than 3 million popular Korean vehicles. The company also is introducing an aftermarket solution for a new innovation in GDi technology: Multec 14 (M14) 350-bar pressure injection system as it begins to enter the aftermarket.
Profitable end-to-end service opportunities for a growing market
As a leading manufacturer of OE GDi technology with 30 percent market share worldwide, Delphi Technologies extends its pioneering OE expertise to the aftermarket. Its comprehensive GDi solution already consists of pumps, injectors and service kits fitted as OE to more than 3.9 million popular PSA vehicles. Along with its pioneering GDi product portfolio, the aftermarket solution features comprehensive training, advanced diagnostics, testing and cleaning equipment, technical service, cataloging and market data. By expanding its product offering to more than 3 million Hyundai and Kia models, the company increases its total number of premium end-to-end service opportunities by more than 75 percent for its aftermarket customers.
“The GDi equipped new vehicle market is expected to grow by more than 10 percent annually through 2026, which presents an exciting opportunity for the aftermarket,” said James Tibbert, EMEA marketing director, Delphi Technologies Aftermarket. “Building on our pioneering OE expertise, our GDi solution provides technicians with everything they need to perform premium end-to-end service with access to leading all-makes diagnostics and test solutions that can increase vehicle uptime and garage profitability over 30%.”
GDi testing in as little as five minutes with Hartridge
The growing GDi injector market introduces new and fast-changing technologies for which Hartridge and Delphi Technologies can provide cutting-edge test solutions to the workshop. The Excalibur GDi Master is a plug-and-play test bench capable of powerful flow and high frequency injection rates that allow it to test coil and piezo injectors of both GDi and PFI technology types in as little as five minutes. With the Hartridge Excalibur GDi Master, aftermarket customers can differentiate themselves from the local competition with a fast return on investment in this easy market entry for new workshops.
The Multec 14 (M14) 350-bar pressure injection system, launched in 2017, increased injection pressure from the industry norm of 200 bar to 350 bar to help automakers meet both Euro 6d and China 6 emissions standards. Fitted as OE to more than 3 million vehicles, this GDi technology has begun to enter the aftermarket with owners seeking high-quality independent repairs. Delphi Technologies’ GDi full-service solution will enable garages to quickly and efficiently provide high-quality service for this new technology.
“As an OE supplier, we understand the challenges of maintaining and repairing these highly advanced, high-pressure systems. That is where the support of an original equipment manufacturer can give garages a competitive advantage,” adds Tibbert. “Our expanded GDi service program will give independent garages the support they need to capitalize on this fast-growing market.”
