*The Valeo Power division will implement a lean organization structure based on 7 Regional Operations and will progressively replace the former Valeo Thermal Systems and Powertrain Systems business groups until the completion of all social and legal procedures. During this transition period, the current organization by Product Groups/Regional Operations will co-exist with the future organization by Regional Operation.

We offer comprehensive powertrain systems, such as our recent Smart eDrive concept. It integrates not only the motor and inverter (depending on the voltage level), but also the gearbox equipped with a disconnection or parking system, and a pump to ensure lubrication and autonomous system cooling.

At the forefront of transforming mobility, we are also paving the way for more responsible mobility by developing small and new mobility solutions such as delivery robots, electric bicycles, electric two- and three-wheelers, and light electric vehicles. We will be in the vanguard not only in reducing carbon dioxide emissions from our means of transport—which aligns perfectly with Valeo’s carbon neutrality strategy—but also in helping people to manage their energy consumption through smart devices that adapt energy demand to its availability, such as vehicle-to-grid technology or electric charging stations.

In the post-Covid era, the energy transition will gather momentum. Curbing CO2 emissions is  a top priority. Our teams are committed and working to meet the challenge of accelerating electrification.
