Glow plug assortment of NGK

In past years increasing numbers of automobile manufacturers have chosen glow plugs from NGK for their serial production. For example, BMW, Citroën, Fiat, Ford, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Opel, Peugeot, Renault and VW/Audi use glow plugs from NGK.

One reason for this trust is the competence of NGK in the field of technical ceramics, which enables the development of new glow plugs for increasingly strict emissions targets. In this connection, NGK technicians in Japan constantly research new materials, designs and production processes.

This know-how is reflected in the glow plugs which NGK supplies to the aftermarket. Whether it is a glow plug from the complete assortment or a glow plug from the fast-moving D-Power assortment.
