New Delhi: Global automotive supplier Valeo on Monday announced that the company will be revealing a slew of its latest technological innovations for electric, autonomous and connected vehicle segments at 2019 Shanghai auto show.
Valeo is presenting its low-voltage (48 V), all-electric urban vehicle prototype, just one example of its electrification solutions for all the different mobility needs and uses, the company said in a release.
The fully functional two-seater electric vehicle can reach speeds of up to 100 km/h, with a range of 150 km. It can be charged via any power socket, offering an idea of what an affordable, compact vehicle that is perfectly adapted to urban mobility could look like in the future. In a world first, Valeo is also unveiling its reversible charger, a major innovation enabling vehicles to become links in the power grid. Developed in collaboration with the Chinese company Xcharge, this system makes it possible to send excess electricity back to the grid.
To cater to autonomous and connected vehicles, the company is planning to display a wide variety of sensors. The sensors portfolio includes Valeo Scala, which the company claimed is first and only series-produced LiDAR in the automotive industry. In addition it will also showcase sensor cleaning solutions, including Valeo everView.
