New Launches of Automotive Spark and Glow Plugs

The automotive industry has seen some major ups and downs in the past few years, and this is majorly attributed to the paradigm shift in the market toward electric vehicles and alternative energy vehicles. Demand for IC engine components is expected to see some major changes as the world heads toward the trend of electric vehicles.

Robert Bosch, LLC., a renowned name in the automotive industry, recently added more than 400 aftermarket automotive parts to its portfolio. Of those, it has also released its new EVO spark plugs that are aimed at ensuring reliable ignition throughout their long service life even under extreme conditions, and are built for modern engines. These plugs have high dielectric strength (>45 kV) and can withstand irregular combustion.

Similarly, Pulstar has also launched a new spark plug in 2020, which is an improved and upgraded product with better performance and is long-lasting. The new iridium-based plug is claimed to be 20,000 times more powerful than standard spark plugs. The plug also has a capacitor that stores energy from the vehicle’s battery so that when the ignition is turned on it provides a massive pulse, providing better performance and uses less gasoline.
