Delphi Plug Top Ignition Coil with Multi-Charge

With Delphi Technologies’ new OE ignition coils for Mercedes applications, garages can now offer a highquality,
competitively priced ignition repair for a growing fleet of high-performance vehicles. Featuring the company’s multi-charge technology, the system delivers multiple sparks and increased spark energy for
fewer emissions, up to 20 percent better fuel economy and improved engine performance.

To meet the growing aftermarket demand, Delphi Technologies, a leading global supplier of advanced
ignition systems, is launching two new OE ignition coils, featuring its proven multi-charge technology. Fitted
to popular Mercedes applications, more than 14 million coils have been produced so far. And with OE business committed through the next decade, this represents a significant and growing opportunity for both distributors and garages.


“By making this innovative technology available in the independent aftermarket, garages can now offer their
customers a competitive and guaranteed quality ignition repair. As well as the immediate business on offer,
this provides garages with an opportunity to tie in a high-value, growing fleet of vehicles, that will need highvalue
repairs throughout their lifetime,” comments Jean-Francois Bouveyron, vice president, Delphi
Technologies Aftermarket – EMEA.


Delphi Technologies’ OE ignition coils are fitted to more than 150 Mercedes models including A220, C180,
C200, E200, GLA200 and Vito. The latest additions take the company’s ignition range to more than 500 part
numbers, covering nearly 9,000 applications (make/model/engine size) and a total parc of 114 million
vehicles, making it one of or the most comprehensive in the industry.

Improved fuel economy of up to 20 percent


With Delphi Technologies’ multi-charge ignition, the initial spark is followed by several additional sparks to
ignite the fuel-air mixture under challenging operating conditions, such as high exhaust gas recirculation
levels and lean fuel mixtures. The very-fast, consecutive spark events allow ignition to occur at the desired
spark timing. This results in optimal combustion and helps achieve significantly improved fuel economy – up
to 20 percent – and reduced emissions in GDi engines, compared with competitor time-controlled multi spark ignition systems.
