Delphi highlights 2020 first-to-market brake pad achievements

Brand gearing up to provide a full-service solution for a new electrified car parc in 2021

Despite 2020 being an unprecedented year for the global automotive industry, Delphi Technologies says its braking program has made great strides to become the first-mover supplier in Europe.

The brand recently announced two more first-to-market brake pad applications in its European braking program; front brake pads for the new Toyota Yaris Cross (09/2020>) and front brake pads for the Toyota Prius PHV (05/2019>).

The new applications join an already extensive list of first-to-market brake pad applications.

The total of first-to-market applications added in 2020 covers 24 models across 12 vehicle manufacturers – a company record for the aftermarket braking program.
