Valeo 48V technology at the Place de la Concorde

For the very first time, the Place de la Concorde turns into a green test drive center during the Paris Motor Show (October 4-14).

48V at Place de la Concorde in Paris

The world’s largest cities have committed to reduce CO2 emissions and the French capital is no exception. During the Paris Motor Show, an unprecedented green test drive center is taking place to showcase some of the best ‘clean’ technologies: electric, hybrid, hydrogen and natural gas (NGV).


Valeo's 48V technology demonstration at the Paris Motor Show


In the magnificent surroundings of Place de la Concorde, two cars fitted with Valeo’s innovative 48V low-voltage solution: the hybrid Golf and the fully electric e-City were presented during the opening ceremony on October 4th.

48V is ideal for urban mobility: the vehicles fitted with this technology are smaller, lighter and its relatively low cost makes it accessible to all.
