At the heart of the electrification revolution, Valeo Powertrain Systems develops and produces innovative powertrain solutions to improve today’s engines and design the electric mobility of tomorrow.
We develop smart solutions in terms of electrification, automated transmissions and clean engines for vehicles, enabling us to anticipate and respond to future market trends in the automotive industry.
We offer comprehensive powertrain systems, such as our recent Smart eDrive concept, which integrates not only the motor and its inverter, from Valeo or Valeo Siemens eAutomotive depending on the voltage level, but also the gearbox equipped with a disconnection or parking system, as well as a pump to ensure lubrication and autonomous system cooling.
At the forefront of the process 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 when it comes to reducing carbon dioxide emissions from our means of transport—which lines up perfectly with Valeo’s carbon neutrality strategy, thereby contributing to reducing the environmental impact of human activities—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 pace, and curbing CO2 emissions will become a top priority. Our teams are committed and working to meet the challenge of accelerating electrification.
