PARIS, September 22, 2010 -- At the Paris Motor Show, Valeo will be presenting its innovations on an electric show car.

Specially created for the event, the electric show car features all technological innovations specifically developed by Valeo and its partners for electric vehicles. From driveline components to thermal management systems or detection systems, each has been designed with the aim of extending the range of an electric vehicle without undermining its comfort.

The goal is to offer automakers realistic, high-performance solutions for mass production at an affordable cost.

More generally, Valeo is focused on the reduction of CO2 emissions and is already developing a wide range of products for internal combustion engine vehicles and hybrids. These technologies, which offer significant fuel savings, are presented under three different ways: reducing carbon dioxide emissions, weight reduction and energy efficiency, and smart driving.
