    TROY, Mich., Dec. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Delphi Corp. (NYSE:   DPH) plans to
 extend its track record of announcing game-changing entertainment technologies
 at the 2005 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Jan.
 6-9, 2005.
     (Logo:  http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20020315/DEF002LOGO )
     At the show, Delphi will showcase its market-leading original equipment
 entertainment offerings for new vehicles, as well as retail plug-and-play
 products.  Product highlights include 802.11 (Wi-Fi) capable audio and video,
 satellite radio, streaming video, and premium audio systems.
     "In two years, Delphi has become the premier provider of satellite radio
 products for the car and in the home," said Dave Wohleen, president, Delphi
 Electrical, Electronics & Safety sector.  "During this time, we've sold more
 than 3 million satellite digital audio receivers to OEMs, retailers and
 consumers -- more than any other company worldwide.  Now, we're building on
 that success by expanding our portfolio and working quickly to deliver new
 products that consumers want."
     Delphi is currently scheduled to announce new entertainment-related
 products at CES, Wohleen said.
     Beyond entertainment, Delphi will highlight its product portfolio in the
 areas of information, connectivity and safety.  "Many companies specialize in
 one area, but very few have the capabilities to provide more," Wohleen said.
 "The great thing about Delphi is that we can deliver great electronics to OEMs
 and consumers alike for the vehicle, the home, and for on-the-go.  We're
 helping create a 'cocoon of safety' for the vehicle.  We've introduced easy-
 to-use touch-screen navigation systems.  We're advancing the use of Wi-Fi to
 allow consumers to access 'hot spots.'  When it comes to innovative
 electronics technologies in a variety of product areas, Delphi is bringing it
 all together."
