The CAV name comes from Charles Anthony Vandervell (born in 1871), an inventor and industrialist who’s work focussed principally on the manufacture of diesel fuel injection equipment for diesel engine manufacturers worldwide. He also made electrical equipment for commercial and military vehicles.

A highly innovative company, based in Acton, London, it made the world’s first lighting system for use on a double decker bus. It also brought the dynamo-charged battery principle to the world.

CAV was bought by Lucas in 1926, and subsequently in 1931, CAV partnered with Robert Bosch Ltd., to make fuel injection pumps for the ever-expanding diesel industry. In 1937, Lucas bought out Bosch’s part of the business, and the company changed name to CAV Ltd in 1939. It changed name again in 1978, becoming Lucas CAV. The production of diesel fuel injection parts had been moved to more modern and larger factories in Suffolk, Kent and Gloucestershire, alongside overseas facilities.  

A specialist diesel fuel injection division was created and became known globally as Lucas Diesel Systems Ltd. Since 2000 has been owned by the US corporate Delphi. The Lucas name has changed to Delphi and it has been a major element of the Delphi Powertrain Division for some time.
