Delphi's new multi-charge ignition coils deliver OE technology

Jul 4, 2019   Supply Chain

To meet the growing aftermarket demand, Delphi Technologies, a leading global supplier of advanced ignition systems, is launching two new OE ignition coils, featuring its proven multi-charge technology.

Fitted to popular Mercedes applications, more than 14 million coils have been produced so far. And with OE business committed through the next decade, this represents a significant and growing opportunity for both distributors and garages.


“By making this innovative technology available in the independent aftermarket, garages can now offer their customers a competitive and guaranteed quality ignition repair. As well as the immediate business on offer, this provides garages with an opportunity to tie in a high-value, growing fleet of vehicles, that will need high-value repairs throughout their lifetime,” said Jean-Francois Bouveyron, Vice President, Delphi Technologies Aftermarket – EMEA.


Delphi Technologies’ OE ignition coils are fitted to more than 150 Mercedes models including A220, C180, C200, E200, GLA200 and Vito. The latest additions take the company’s ignition range to more than 500 part numbers, covering nearly 9,000 applications (make/model/engine size) and a total parc of 114 million vehicles, making it one of or the most comprehensive in the industry.


With Delphi Technologies’ multi-charge ignition, the initial spark is followed by several additional sparks to ignite the fuel-air mixture under challenging operating conditions, such as high exhaust gas recirculation levels and lean fuel mixtures. The very-fast, consecutive spark events allow ignition to occur at the desired spark timing. This results in optimal combustion and helps achieve significantly improved fuel economy – up to 20% - and reduced emissions in GDi engines, compared with competitor time-controlled multi spark ignition systems.
