Bosch invented the automotive oxygen sensor in the late 1960s. In 1976, the Volvo 240/260 series became the first passenger car fitted with this new component.
Some 45 years later, the oxygen sensor – also known as the O2 sensor or the lambda sensor – is a vital part of the vehicle’s fuel and emission-control system, and it’s hard to imagine a vehicle without them. In fact, oxygen sensors are required on all gasoline engines and most diesel engines around the world.
