Vitesco Technologies China has moved into new regional headquarters in Shanghai with space for around 450 staff.

“The Chinese market remains essential for the further development of e-mobility and thus also for Vitesco Technologies,” said Vitesco CEO, Andreas Wolf.

“With the new regional headquarters, we now have a firm foothold there to drive forward the mobility of the future hand-in-hand with strong partners in the market.

“Together we are shaping electrification at all stages and across all vehicle segments in order to reduce emissions, especially in cities, while at the same time designing environmentally friendly mobility for everyone and creating modern and sustainable mobility solutions.”

Vitesco Technologies says it is “one of the few system suppliers worldwide” able to offer the whole range of electronics, software and system integration for the electrification of the drive train. The supplier also cites its portfolio of solutions for 48-volt systems and plug-in hybrids through to fully battery-based electric drives.

This encompasses power electronics, sensor technology, integrated axle drives, battery management systems and energy and heat management systems. This makes it possible to provide fully developed individual components and to develop complete systems from a single source.

The e-axle drive EMR3 has been delivered to six car manufacturers including PSA, Hyundai and Dongfeng with more than 20 vehicle models since 2019.  

Vitesco Technologies operates several production, research and development sites in China. Its newly built R&D Centre in Tianjin is expected to open before the end of 2021.
