MAHLE Letrika starter motors: for all gasoline and diesel engines

Starter motors from MAHLE Letrika are perfect for gasoline and diesel engines in passenger cars, commercial vehicles, construction and agricultural machinery, ships, and stationary generators. Little wonder, as we have developed them for well-known global engine manufacturers. We meet their increasing requirements with ever more efficient, smaller, and lighter reduction gear starter motors that replace our previous direct ones. Thanks to our ISO 9001-certified processes, our customers can rely on MAHLE Letrika products for any application—even under the toughest conditions.


The demands on our starter motors are pretty tough

Salt spray, humidity, water, dust, mud, vibrations, heat, cold, and aggressive fluids: the list of challenges is long. And yet starter motors from MAHLE Letrika function reliably. Extensive tests at our test facility and decades of practical experience have paid off. Our designers know that it not only concerns regulations for electromagnetic compatibility or international directives and standards: they also incorporate expertise from our repair shops into our starter motors.


For the safety of people, engines, and the environment—only the best

Our alternators are made of high-quality, proven materials: bronze, copper, steel, and metal graphite. Moreover, their designs are also adapted to the particular application and its requirements.

For example, the alternators for construction and agricultural machinery have extremely durable brushes and bearings, special support points for dust covers, and connections for intake air hoses. In addition, their components are also well protected. The alternators for passenger cars and commercial vehicles remain very quiet even at high rotational speeds, and have especially compact designs.
