Valeo is studying the Indian market closely and developing India-specific technologies to address the future mobility needs in our country
Valeo is all geared up for participation at the third edition of the International Transportation Electrification Conference (iTEC) India 2019. The company will be showcasing the 48V technology, which is best suited for electrification of two-wheelers, three-wheelers as well as hybrid cars. The company said its showcase at iTEC India 2019 will include powertrain solutions for electric two-wheelers, electric three-wheelers, hybrid electric vehicles and battery electric vehicles.
Valeo is working on addressing the electrification needs right from droids to drones and two-wheelers to trucks. The company is developing solutions for multiple modes of transport such as hybrid to electric, low voltage to high voltage/two-wheelers to four-wheelers, commercial vehicles to tractors. Valeo’s portfolio comprises e-Drives (motor+invertor+reducer), Onboard chargers, and DC/DC converters.
Ashok Belani, Group President & Managing Director, Valeo – India said Valeo is excited about developing the electric vehicle market. “Vehicle electrification is picking up enormously in India and strongly believes that the early candidates for electrification would be two and three-wheelers as well as hybrid cars,” he added.
On whether the future of powertrain energy mix in India will be internal combustion engine vs hybrids vs. pure battery EVs, the company expects the future trends to be diverse, driven by end application, which is either personal use or for public use such as shared and mass mobility.
Valeo expects electrification of two and three-wheelers in India to be driven by good total cost of ownership. Continued popularity for shared mobility and adoption by fleet operators would hold the key to the electrification success, the company noted. Valeo is bullish that electrification of mass transport vehicles such as buses aided by state governments and local administrations will give a big push to electrification in the country.
The company is studying Indian market closely and developing India-specific technologies to address the future mobility needs in our country. Valeo has been infusing substantial investments on technologies aimed at contributing towards reducing CO2 emissions.
