DELPHI AUTOMOTIVE TO BECOME APTIV PLC

Following the recent split of Delphi into powertrain and automotive divisions, both departments have taken new names.

The powertrain segment will become Delphi Technologies, while the department formerly known as Delphi Automotive will be called Aptiv PLC.

As aftermarket products are made by Delphi Technologies, the brand will remain on products in factors.

“Despite recent debates around the future of the internal combustion engine, market experts predict that around 95 percent of vehicles on the road will still have an engine in 2025, albeit with increasing degrees of electrification,” said Liam Butterworth, newly appointed CEO, Delphi Technologies.. “This means we have the opportunity to make significant step changes in vehicle performance on the way to a fully electric market. ”

Apiv President and CEO Kevin Clark said: “Aptiv is built on a strong foundation of industry firsts, and has the knowledge, capability, and agility to win with traditional OEM customers and emerging mobility players. It is a remarkable time to be in our industry, and we are very confident about our future.”

Both Aptiv and Delphi Technologies will officially set out their stands as separate entities at CES, held in Las Vegas in January.
