Delphi Technologies launches new global steering and suspension offering for the Tesla Model S unlocking a path to a new repair prospect
New components for the Tesla Model S application join our steering and suspension range and carry the hallmarks of a Delphi Technologies portfolio; engineering excellence, safety focus, and OE expertise. Delphi Technologies, a brand of BorgWarner Inc., enables a considerable service opportunity for workshops looking to embrace newer electric vehicles which are entering their service life. The launch is comprised of several new parts, including control arms, link stabilisers, tie rods, and ball joints. Collectively, these parts will allow a workshop to offer a variety of repairs and replacements for the popular Tesla Model S.
Industry Leading Safety and Handling - Paramount to Design
Delphi Technologies offers aftermarket solutions with clear focus on two of the most important factors of vehicle ownership; vehicle safety and driver experience. These new Tesla Model S parts have shown impressive performance and safety testing during development. The heat-treatment in the design of Delphi Technologies control arm body shows better strength and fatigue life than that of the OEM design.
Additionally, the tested push and pull force of the ball stud indicates the Delphi Technologies design also has superior strength compared to the OEM component. These market-leading results denote optimum durability of these safety-centric components during braking and steering.
“Our new steering and suspension line-up is additional proof of our unwavering commitment to quality and safety. The latest testing data is very impressive and makes these parts the go-to solution for workshops wanting to offer a high calibre service,” says Neil Fryer, Delphi Technologies Vice President Global Marketing, Product and Strategic Planning.
“We believe there should be no compromise on the standards for an aftermarket part, especially when safety and driver experience are fundamental measures of a high quality product. This steering and suspension portfolio shows how our pioneering OE engineering pays dividends for vehicle owners and workshops.”
Steering and suspension replacements for the Tesla Model S specifically carry more significance than the average repair of its type, because these parts are uniquely involved in the vehicle’s driving modes. Smart Air Suspension is a feature responsible for comfort, safety, and Cheetah Mode performance, which has helped to make the Tesla Model S P100D so desirable; and therefore, a high priority for vehicle owners to find like-for-like replacement of original components.
Sustaining a Revolutionary Generation of Vehicles
Providing aftermarket parts for electric vehicles goes above and beyond our extensive application coverage for the latest models; it is a key element of our commitment to a sustainable future.
These new products join existing parts available for this application. We have brake pads, discs, and accessories which are already popular with workshops currently carrying out high quality and reliable servicing. Together, these parts form the groundwork for a complete chassis aftermarket solution for the model. Our end-to-end solution including parts, diagnostic capabilities and training help workshops unlock the latest technologies for the newest models.
