NGK has a wide range of products from the NGK Ignition Parts and NTK Vehicle Electronics brands for hybrid vehicles, responding to the demand for replacement parts for this type of vehicle.
The circulating stock of hybrid vehicles is increasing, as is the need for replacement parts for this type of vehicle. NGK offers a wide range of products through the NGK Ignition Parts and NTK Vehicle Electronics brands.
The product range for hybrid vehicles comprises spark plugs, heaters, ignition coils and cables, lambda probes, exhaust gas temperature sensors (EGTS), MAP/MAF sensors, engine speed and position sensors and recirculation valves. of exhaust gases (EGR).
As far as spark plugs are concerned, most hybrid cars use gasoline engines with start-stop technology and are equipped with the latest generations of this product.
Despite consuming less fuel thanks to electrification, hybrid vehicles weigh more than traditional vehicles with an internal combustion engine, which means that hybrid spark plugs have the same lifespan and the same service intervals as those used. in vehicles with an internal combustion engine.
In order to satisfy the highest technological requirements of hybrid cars, precious metal spark plugs offer optimal performance, and around 95% of hybrids coming off the production line incorporate this type of technology. For the minority of hybrids that are factory equipped with nickel plugs, NGK SPARK PLUG offers a range of precious metal plugs on the aftermarket that offer better performance in terms of fuel efficiency, ignition optimization and longer life. .
Wellthe glowing ones
About 10% of hybrid vehicles use diesel technology with heaters mainly in vehicles in the upper/middle class segment. NGK SPARK PLUG offers both metallic and ceramic heaters.
engines. Find out why they lose power over time
Ceramic heaters, however, have a technical advantage over metallic heaters, as the latter have greater wear due to overheating in “stand-by” in hybrid mode. The expected life of heaters is the same as that of diesel engines in general.
Ignition coils and cables
NGK ignition coils meet the highest quality standards on the market and perfectly adapt to the highest technical requirements of hybrid vehicles, but the latter demand a higher level of performance from the ignition coils due to a wider load range. .
Due to the rise of advanced direct-connect coils (pencil coils and spool coils) ignition cables, on the other hand, are less needed in hybrid cars. However, they are still needed by around 41% of the petrol car parc.
Gama da NTK Vehicle Electronics
NTK Vehicle Electronics’ offer for hybrids (both petrol and diesel) includes lambda sensors, exhaust gas temperature sensors (EGTS), MAP/MAF sensors, engine speed and position sensors and exhaust gas recirculation valves. exhaust system (EGR) to meet the latest emission standards.
All NTK products cover the latest automotive technologies and standards, regardless of whether they are used in combustion or hybrid configurations. In addition, the NTK product range offers coverage of the ever-growing EMEA car parc.
