After announcing 24 first-to-market brake pad applications last year, Delphi Technologies, a brand of BorgWarner Inc., continues to prove itself a first-mover supplier in Europe by starting 2021 with yet another first-to-market application: front brake pads for the 2020 Volkswagen Caravelle, Transporter, Multivan, and California 2.0D.
This latest release contributes to a bigger picture of market leading Volkswagen model coverage across Europe by Delphi Technologies. The new front brake pads enable the company to achieve 99.89% Volkswagen brake pad coverage in multiple key markets such as Germany UK, Italy, France and Spain.
Delphi Technologies also offers leading Volkswagen brake disc coverage in Europe ensuring the right mix of parts for a high-quality repair.
Delphi Technologies’ provision for new models represents an exciting opportunity for the aftermarket

The newest model, which has already won awards in 2021, looks to follow the success of the 2016 model.

Increased vehicle use will require sooner than anticipated repairs.
