The addition of 261 new part numbers brings the full line VDO program up to 1,505 SKUs and offers wide coverage and availability for import and domestic cars, SUVs, vans and light trucks up to model year 2011.
Continental has added 215 new SKUs to its offering of OE-quality VDO fan assemblies and 46 new blower motor part numbers to its VDO blower motor program. The complete electric motors line is featured in the 2012 catalog, which also presents the fan assemblies in a special look-up section designed to make it easy for technicians and counter personnel to choose between a complete fan assembly and a motor-only replacement.

The new part number additions to this program, alone, represent over 75 million additional sales opportunities for our customers and illustrate Continental's ever present and ongoing commitment to innovation, quality and coverage. It is our pledge and obligation to keep our customers profitable and ahead of the competition."

Features include thick windings, large commutators and dual bearing technology for optimal operation and long life. All VDO motors are made to OE quality standards in TS/ISO certified facilities to the same specifications and quality standards as the OE components supplied by Continental to automakers worldwide.
