The ongoing backlog, defined as cumulative remaining life-of-program booked sales, was approximately US$ 16.7 billion as of March 31, 2017, up from US$ 16.5 billion at the end of 2016.

Total revenue for the electronics product group had a smaller increase of 2.1% to US$ 810 million.

The infotainment and connected car solutions developer and manufacturer owns manufacturing plants in Reynosa and Chihuahua, where it also operates a Customers Center and a Technical Center.

Visteon’s customer portfolio includes brands such as Ford, Renault/Nissan, Mazda, BMW, General Motors, Honda, PSA, Jaguar-Land Rover, Volkswagen and Daimler.
