Valeo is showcasing its new low-voltage (48V) all-electric vehicle prototype motorisation system at CES 2018, an innovation the French supplier maintains is 20% more economical than existing high-voltage solutions.
The solution gives a small two-seater car a range of 100km and a top speed of 100km/h.
Valeo technologies are also central to Autonom Cab, the world's first robo-taxi, to be presented by its French designer Navya at CES. The all-electric, driverless vehicle is fitted with seven Valeo Scala laser scanners.
The Scala is the first and only mass-produced LiDAR scanner on the market designed specifically for cars, and is a key component of the autonomous vehicle.
In addition, Valeo will be displaying a new system which allows the interior climate of a vehicle to be adjusted to each passenger's physical condition and sensitivity to temperature, when and where they need it.
The system can also detect the driver's mood and release stimulating or soothing fragrances and ions in the event of tiredness or stress.
