Its power electronics technologies include products such as high-voltage inverters, DC / DC converters, and built-in chargers that transfer electrical power to enable electric and hybrid vehicle propulsion systems.
The complete powertrain product portfolio, combined with its proprietary software and controls, enables industry-leading powertrains for internal combustion, hybrid and electric vehicle engines.
Delphi Technologies has a presence in the world’s major regions and has positioned itself as a leading provider of advanced vehicle propulsion technologies, including electrification, tailored to meet the needs of its customers in each region.
The company is focused on providing technologies and solutions that solve some of its customers’ most complex powertrain challenges, by enabling its customers to meet increasingly stringent local regulatory requirements while improving vehicle performance.
Globally, Delphi Technologies plans to expand margins by focusing on higher-value product lines, such as electronics and services, which include diagnostics and remanufacturing.
It expects demand for these product lines to grow faster than the general aftermarket industry as the electronic content of new vehicles continues to increase, providing a solid foundation for profitable scaling in the future.

Delphi Technologies continues to take steps to address its cost competitiveness through increased operational efficiency, by reshaping and realigning its engineering footprint, maximizing manufacturing production and locating its facilities in countries with the best cost.
The sector and Delphi Technologies
The automotive and commercial vehicle parts industry provides components, systems, subsystems, and modules to original equipment manufacturers for new vehicle manufacturing, as well as the aftermarket for use as replacement parts.
In 2019, global production of vehicles (including light and commercial vehicles) decreased by 6% compared to the previous year, reflecting a decrease of 9% in China, 4% in Europe, 4% in North America and 4% in South America.
The demand for automotive components in the OEM market is generally a function of the number of new vehicles produced in response to consumer demand, which is mainly due to macroeconomic factors such as credit availability, interest rates, fuel prices, consumer confidence, employment and other trends.
In the commercial vehicle market, vehicle production is primarily driven by industrial production, the amount of cargo tonnage being transported, and the availability of credit and interest rates.
