Robert Bosch is broadening its coverage of gasoline fuel injectors for domestic, Asian and European applications with 11 new gasoline direct injector (GDI) part numbers covering 4.1 million new vehicles in operation (VIO) and 12 new gasoline port fuel injector part numbers covering 2.4 million new VIO.
The expanded coverage includes Audi, VW, BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Ford and Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini Cooper and Porsche. These late model applications can be found in the current Bosch ACES/PIE catalog beginning in October 2013.
With more and more automakers opting for downsizing, the international market for gasoline direct injection systems is steadily growing. In fact, after marking the production of 25 million gasoline direct injectors in 2011, Bosch increased its total output to 50 million units by November 2012. Bosch estimates that by 2015, 18% of global new vehicle production will feature gasoline direct injection.
