Klarius Products has announced a range of updates and additions to its Euro 5 catalytic converter (CAT) and catalysed diesel particulate filters (CDPF) range. These include new CATs for the hybrid Lexus CT200H from 2010-2013 and the popular Ford Ranger 2.2TDCi pick-up truck from 2011-2013, plus CDPFs for the Fiat Doblo 1.6d MultiJet van from 2010-2015.
Doug Bentley, Head of Research and Development at Klarius, said: “It has been especially important for us to make sure we cover light commercial fleet vehicles such as the Fiat Doblo, which have seen a large increase in usage during the current pandemic as people choose to stay at home and use home-delivery options instead.
“With hybrid vehicles such as the CT200H making up to 31% of new vehicle sales in January 2021, we are also working to stay ahead of the curve and will continue to develop and release new products to supply this ever-increasing market. Hybrid light commercial vehicles are an area of focus too, as increased miles and intermittent engine operation places more strain on exhaust system reliability.
“Additionally, as part of our ongoing work to maximise our range and improve catalogue efficiency, we have reduced our part number complexity by condensing multiple applications into one part number with improved coverage. For example, amalgamating our Gen-1 Honda Jazz offerings into a single new part number.”
Mark Brickhill, CEO at Klarius, added: “In addition to these new parts, we are upgrading many of our existing CATs and DPFs from Euro 3 to Euro 4/5 standards to offer the best product performance we can in an ever-changing market. We signpost these updates to ensure our customers always have the latest part number and vehicle fitment information.
“This focus on improvement ensures that Klarius retains its market-leading position with the greatest car parc coverage of exhausts, CATs and DPFs – supported by next morning deliveries to our partner distributors, buying groups and auto-factors across the UK.”
