Group, Valeo and Valeo Siemens eAutomotive announced that they have signed a
memorandum of understanding to form a strategic partnership for the design,
co-development and manufacture in France of a new-generation automotive
electric motor, eliminating the use of rare earths.
three partners will combine their know-how and recognized expertise to design a
unique electric powertrain system that is unparalleled worldwide, offering more
power on less energy, without the use of rare earths.
this partnership, each of the three partners will contribute to the development
and production of the two key parts of the electric motor: the rotor and the
will develop and produce the EESM (electrically excited synchronous motor)
rotor technology, Designed without the use of rare earths, it officers enhanced
energy performance. In addition to the supply of components based on each
company's best expertise, the overall architecture of the all-in-one motor for
Renault Group will also be designed by Renault.
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
