and Valeo Siemens eAutomotive will develop and produce the stator, which is
based on Valeo's technological expertise in copper wire assembly. Thanks to its
unique know-how in this field, which allows it to use a higher density of
copper in the stator, Valeo is able to generate more power without having to
use more electrical energy.
Group, Valeo and Valeo Siemens eAutomotive will be the first to mass produce a
200kW electric motor without using rare earths, starting in 2027. Production of
the motor for the automaker's own needs will be based at Renault Group's Cléon
plant in Normandy, France.
de Meo, Renault Group’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We are
delighted to be partnering with Valeo, whose know-how is recognized the world
over. Together, we will design and develop a new generation of high-tech
electric motors, produced at our Cléon plant. This partnership is further
demonstration of our capacity to be at the forefront of the electric revolution
taking place in the automotive industry and to anchor the new automotive value
chain in France".
Périllat, Valeo's Chief Executive Officer, commented: "This strategic
partnership will result in a major step forward for electric mobility.
Alongside Renault Group, we are creating a new-generation automotive electric
motor that eliminates the use of rareearths. This new motor will meet the most
stringent environmental requirements and the highest performance
pioneers of automotive electrification, Renault Group, Valeo and Valeo Siemens
eAutomotive are turning a new page in technology for electric mobility.
