Christina Bergstrom, Senior Product Manager for Continental Commercial Vehicles and Services (CVS) noted, “The introduction of these new hybrid coolant pumps adds an important element to our growing coverage of hybrid vehicles replacement parts. Hybrid powered vehicles have been on North American roads for the past 15 years and are now coming in for inverter coolant pump service. As a result, the demand for replacement parts is constantly on the increase, but parts availability outside of the dealer network has been limited. We are delighted to be able to offer our aftermarket customers a reliable and affordable source of OE-quality hybrid replacements parts.”
