R-1234yf Heat Pump System with Water Cooled Condenser

Valeo is also developing several architectures of heat pumps that offer optimal cabin heating and superior air conditioning performance with minimum impact on the electric vehicle’s driving range.

We use the latest standard refrigerant, R-1234yf, with ultra-low GWP (Global Warming Potential). Indirect heat pumps include the Valeo Water Cooled Condenser – winner of the PACE Award 2016 – which optimize driving range for electrical battery-powered vehicles, allowing up to 30% more driving range in winter conditions.
