Valeo presents five major innovations in China at the Beijing Motor Show

Monday, 23 Apr 2012

Beijing, China, 23 April 2012 - Valeo presents five major innovations designed to make driving more enjoyable, while reducing fuel consumption.

These include:

- Park4U®: the second generation of this parking assistance system allows drivers to park their vehicle without touching the steering wheel, in a perpendicular or parallel parking space with just 40cm of clearance at each side.

- Air intake module: a new air intake architecture for diesel and gasoline engines. The air intake module, integrating a water cooled charge air cooler, contributes to an increase in energy efficiency and enables more compact charged combustion engines with lower emission levels.

- BeamAtic® PremiumLED: smart LED lighting system. Headlamps equipped with BeamAtic® PremiumLED provide maximum visibility, similar to high beam, without blinding oncoming or overtaking motorists.

- Hybrid4all: an electrification solution for the powertrain. Hybrid4all is based on a belt mounted motor-generator and a low-voltage architecture (48V). By combining the Stop-Start function, regenerative braking and engine assistance, this system offers fuel savings of over 15% at an affordable cost. It is suited to all vehicles in all categories.

- Double Dry Clutch Transmissions: a system that enables the motorist to combine the sportiness of a manual gearbox with the comfort of an automatic, while offering fuel savings of up to 10% compared to a conventional automatic.

Valeo's continuous investment of over 5% of its annual sales in Research and Development has enabled us to bring to market the innovations that will support the Group's development in China in the coming years.

Valeo has a total of 21 production sites, 12 R&D centers and almost 9600 employees in China, serving most local and international automakers.

Valeo stand: China International Exhibition Center (New Venue) Outdoor Space West of W1-W09.
