Delphi Technologies plans to introduce what it says is the first combined inverter and DC/DC converter in China.
The addition of these components is expected to create a more efficient and cost-effective way to deliver increased power density in a smaller and lighter package. The potential to deliver more efficient electric propulsion systems has already attracted the attention of major automakers who have selected the technology to power their EVs, Delphi said.
Delphi has invested $80 million in a 180,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Suzhou, in Jiangsu Province. Delphi said the product launch underpins the technological advancements it is pursuing to meet standards required in the Chinese market.
“This launch marks another major step forward for Delphi Technologies’ pioneering position in electrification and another development of power electronics as an enabler,” said Kevin Quinlan, Delphi’s General Manager of Electronics and Electrification. “We bring two decades of expertise to this product, which began with an initial investment in advanced engineering of electric vehicles.”
