Delphi has won a $US180 million contract from Renault to provide the complete electrical/electronic distribution system for a future vehicle on the firm’s B-segment small vehicles platform. 

Delphi is a long-standing supplier of electrical/electronic distribution systems to the Renault group.

With this future programme, Delphi Packard Electric has grown its new business with Renault in Europe to $790 million since 2001.

“We have had very good relationships at all stages of our projects on the engineering activities. When you establish that kind of confidence with the customer so far up front of vehicle’s final design, you move with authority from ‘supplier’ to ‘partner,’ which will position a supplier to grow,” a spokesman said.

Delphi Packard Electric currently provides electrical and electronic systems for the Clio and Twingo and also supplies engine harnesses for the new Modus.
