Delphi’s Common Rail

Delphi Diesel Systems has been involved in Common Rail technology from the beginning. Some of the very first systems were pioneered by Delphi with systems fitted to, among others, Ford, Jaguar, Renault, PeugeotCitroen, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, SsangYong, Kia and Hyundai applications. The number of vehicle manufacturers fitting Delphi’s Common Rail systems continues to grow, with new contracts regularly being announced. Delphi Diesel is committed to supporting vehicle manufacturers and the automotive aftermarket in harnessing this growing market, with total Delphi Diesel Common Rail parc expected to reach 14 million vehicles by 2011.



With European emissions regulations for new light duty vehicles (cars and light commercial vehicles) getting tighter and tighter, it is imperative that the Common Rail system meets these requirements. European emissions standards are evolving regularly and Delphi has always reacted accordingly to ensure that its Common Rail systems meet the latest requirements, and are in a position to be at the forefront of emission-controlled technology. The current European emissions standard is Euro IV, with Euro V coming soon. The accompanying table shows movement through the European standards.


The Future

From the current environmental and market trends, it is easy to see why Common Rail technology is going to play a major part in the business of everyone involved in diesel vehicles. Delphi has made a substantial investment in preparing its authorised distributors to deal with the new technology, both in new Common Rail product technology and in diagnostics, equipment and training. With increasing numbers of vehicles equipped with Delphi components coming out of warranty, this spells exciting opportunities in the future.
