Expanded Product Range Starting January 2006 - Siemens VDO to supply broad spectrum of engine management sensors.

Paris, France, October 13, 2005

Siemens VDO is further expanding its range of original replacement parts for the independent aftermarket. Starting January 2006, the company will be adding approximately seventy new engine management sensors. At the international Equip Auto trade show at the Parc d’Expositions in Paris, the company will be presenting its new products to interested industry specialists. The Siemens VDO replacement parts range already includes instrumentation sensors, fuel systems, engine actuators, HVAC blower and fan systems, screen and headlight washer systems as well as actuators for central locking systems.

When a combustion engine works optimally, it consumes less fuel and produces fewer harmful emissions. To achieve this, sensors are used which relay diverse data such as temperature and engine speed to the engine control system, thus helping to improve engine efficiency and enhance driving comfort. Starting January 2006, Siemens VDO will be adding approximately seventy new engine management sensors to its range of original replacement parts for the aftermarket. This range also includes mass air flow sensors, camshaft sensors, crankshaft sensors, knock sensors, manifold air pressure sensors and wheel speed sensors. All manufactured to strict OEM quality standards. Like all original replacement parts from Siemens VDO, the sensors can be replaced simply and quickly on a one-to-one basis.

The Siemens VDO replacement parts range consists of six product lines: engine management and instrumentation sensors, fuel systems, engine actuators, HVAC blower and fan systems, screen and headlight washer systems and actuators for central door locking systems for all major Asian, European and US vehicle makes and models.


Engine actuators from Siemens VDO alone cover well over 200 models and 650 vehicle types from all the leading manufacturers, currently representing a total of more than 25 million cars in just the TOP 5 countries in Western Europe. With its replacement parts for fuel systems (pumps and fuel delivery units), Siemens VDO also serves an extensive target group and covers the replacement demand of 6.5 million cars just in France. In Europe, one in every four vehicles is equipped with a fuel system supplied by Siemens VDO.


The parts for the Siemens VDO's aftermarket range come directly from original equipment production for the vehicle manufacturers, thus guaranteeing maximum safety for the consumer. They meet all OEM quality specifications. For example, the actuators for central door locking systems are designed for 100,000 operating cycles.


With such a comprehensive product range for the aftermarket, Siemens VDO ensures wholesalers and independent garages a smooth and cost-efficient material flow and replacement parts supply. The companies can procure all the replacement parts they require from just one sales and distribution channel. At the same time, replacement parts from Siemens VDO ensure easy replacement in conjunction with the highest quality standards and minimum effort and expense, since it goes without saying that parts have a precise fit and feature optimal attachment points and pre-defined plug connectors. Improvised solutions and time-consuming detailed adjustments are therefore a thing of the past.
