How Valeo wants to make itself indispensable when it comes to electric motors
The electric Mercedes EQS is the German brand’s prestige sedan (from 135,850 euros). Gone are the big V8 or V12 internal combustion engines that made their predecessor, the thermal S-Class, famous. Make way for… a French Valeo engine with a total output of up to 524 hp. “We put the complete set together,” says Geoffrey Bouquot, director of strategy and innovation for the three-color car equipment manufacturer, in an interview with Stolz Challenges. Certainly the contract with Mercedes had been brought in by the German company Siemens. But last July, Valeo acquired 100% of the Valeo Siemens eAutomotive joint venture, a leader in high-voltage electrification, previously shared 50:50 by the two companies. Thanks to this activity, Valeo now has “about twenty German, French, American and Chinese customers and already equips 90 models”, Geoffroy Bouquot continues. deliver Mercedes? A great business card. Valeo can also be found under the hood of electric Volkswagens like the ID.3 and ID.4.
