Rear brake pads for the Ford Mustang Mach-E 07 from 2020 on, have been unveiled as the latest first-to-market release from Delphi.


“We’re really excited to announce the launch of our new EV brake pads,” said Carl Lester, Global Product Line Manager at Delphi. “Delphi EV brake pads have been engineered to provide instant friction and exceptional braking performance straight from the box.”

Delphi carried out extensive research and development into OE-quality EV-specific brake friction materials and found a wide range of wear characteristics. Most electrified vehicles can provide sufficient braking power through the electric motor alone to slow it in the majority of daily-driving scenarios. However, Delphi says regenerative braking has given rise to an entirely new problem.

“Friction braking is self-cleaning but because hydraulic brakes are essentially a back-up system on electric vehicles, they are used much less often,” said Carl. “With less use, rust and contaminants can quickly build-up, affecting both the disc’s friction surface, the pad mounting, and the caliper piston/slider pins.”

Delphi is renowned for releasing first-to-market premium quality braking parts to the aftermarket, allowing workshops to generate additional revenue by accessing the repair business on newer vehicles sooner, increasing profitability and customer retention. The Mustang discs open up a new opportunity while also combating the challenges set by electric vehicle configuration.
