Continental Powertrain has been renamed as Vitesco Technologies. The company will exhibit at EICMA 2019 from November 7–10, 2019 in Milan, Italy. Organizational independence gives Vitesco Technologies the required entrepreneurial scope to respond promptly and individually to the wide range of requirements. The name “Vitesco,” derived from vita (Latin for life), stands for energy, speed, and agility, said the company.
Vitesco Technologies has a wide range of innovative products in the two-wheeler and Powersports field—from engine control units to a variety of sensors and actuators and fuel and exhaust gas management systems. These provide the customized solutions for the special requirements of each respective market and meet the latest emission standards such as Euro 5 (from January 2020), China 4 including On Board Diagnostics (OBD, since July 2019) and Bharat 6 including OBD (from April 2020 in India). Besides, Vitesco Technologies is working intensively on electric drives for two-wheelers, focusing primarily on the Asian markets.
“As a first step, we are concentrating on solutions for vehicles which were previously driven by combustion engines with an engine displacement of up to 150 cc,” states Torsten Bellon, head of Non-Automotive Product Line at Vitesco Technologies. “For this vehicle class, we will offer a 48-volt electric machine with corresponding electronics. We are in the process of completing the conceptualization and will shortly be starting the series development.”
Vitesco Technologies presents its new product updates together with Continental at the Milan Trade Fair, in Hall 9, Stand O68.
