Electrical Distribution Systems

The world’s leader in electrical architectures for vehicles
We engineer and manufacture a full range of power and signal distribution systems, including the high-speed data and high-power electrical systems needed to build feature-rich, highly automated, electric vehicles.

Enabling safer, greener and more connected solutions

Signals transmission and power distribution at the right time to the right place

We have been designing electrical architectures for more than 100 years and leading the industry in the evolution of vehicle architectures.

We like to think of the electrical distribution system as a nervous system, moving power and data throughout a vehicle. High-speed data transmission systems send information from the vehicle’s eyes and ears (sensors) to the brain (computing platforms).

We bring our deep experience and systems integration expertise, whether we are building to print or providing full design services of the entire vehicle electrical architecture. We solve our customers’ most challenging problems.

Powering the EVs of Today and Tomorrow

Aptiv’s signal and power distribution solutions accelerate the electrified, automated, sustainable and software-defined future of mobility by optimizing electrical architectures in ways no one else can.

Aptiv Core Capabilities

Solving Automation’s Greatest Challenge

As OEMs automate the assembly of their vehicles, there is one element that is still not automated – and it is one of the largest and most complex. Our experts discuss how Aptiv is helping OEMs tackle this challenge.

Engineering Tomorrow’s Car

A Track Record of Innovative Technology Solutions and Systems Integration

Designing all-electric vehicles requires a fundamental rethink of all aspects of vehicle architecture. Aptiv engineers and manufactures a wide range of technologies that enable the electric vehicles being designed today, including:

  • High-voltage cabling
  • High-voltage connectors
