AAPEX Live 2022 Coverage
Continental, an aftermarket supplier of OE-engineered replacement parts, has expanded its Hybrid Battery Cooling Fan program to address the growing demand for hybrid cooling components that meet OE specs for true fit, form and function. With the addition of seven new direct-fit OE replacements, Continental says it is now able to deliver coverage for popular hybrid vehicles from 11 makes for model years 2003 to 2021. The line features 21 SKUs that can cover over 19 million vehicles on the road in the U.S. and Canada.
Continental OE Hybrid Battery Cooling Fans are now available for Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac ELR, Chevrolet Impala and Volt, Ford C-Max and Fusion, Honda Accord, Civic, CR-Z, and Insight, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Lexus CT, RX 400h, RX450h, RX450hL, and UX250H, Lincoln MKZ, Mercury Milan, and Toyota Avalon, Camry, Highlander, Mirai and Prius.
Christina Bergstrom, Continental senior product manager, explains, “Hybrid battery cooling is critical to battery life and proper vehicle performance. As hybrid vehicles age, their battery packs can begin to weaken after only five years of service, and the cooling fans may need to be replaced in the seventh and eighth year in order to maintain required cooling. Because we are seeing more vehicles coming into shops for battery service and fan replacements, we have increased our offering to meet the demand.”
Continental hybrid battery cooling fans are designed to restore original battery cooling performance to maintain the health of the battery and optimize overall efficiency, the company noted. These fans feature an OE design that includes identical mounting locations and plug-and-play electrical connections to ensure a proper fit and easy installation.
