Our company

Leading the industry of electric mobility

Valeo Siemens eAutomotive is characterised by powerful innovations and a strong know-how in the field of electric mobility. Our mission is to electrify the world of mobility and make a difference.

Electric mobility –
thinking ahead with the latest technology

 

Electric vehicles are making traffic in our cities cleaner and quieter. Using innovative technologies and the latest developments – ranging from electric motors, inverters and chargers through to fully integrated electric powertrain units – Valeo Siemens eAutomotive is contributing toward a low-emission future.

The Franco-German joint venture, established in December 2016, is fully exploiting the advantages emerging from the fusion of the high-voltage technology divisions of Valeo S.A., a global supplier to the automobile and commercial vehicle industry, and Siemens AG, a global technology powerhouse focusing on the areas of electrification, automation and digitalization.

On the basis of the complementary product ranges and the expansion of the portfolios, the joint enterprise is exploiting significant synergy effects in production and purchasing, thereby establishing a foundation for sustained growth and profitability. In this way, the joint venture is combining the best of two corporate worlds.

This excellent symbiosis has made it possible for Valeo Siemens eAutomotive to establish itself within a very short time as a leading supplier in the growth market of electric mobility. The company is currently involved in several development projects, whose projected sales total 10 billion euros.
