The manufacturer added: “By continuously expanding our braking program, Delphi Technologies Aftermarket enables new business opportunities for our customers by providing access to high-quality replacement parts for a rapidly growing car parc in Europe.
“While top vehicle manufactures are planning electrification goals for Europe, we’re gearing up our braking program to provide a full-service solution for the new electrified car parc, with plans to expand our HEV and BEV brake pad line-up in 2021.”
