Faurecia at the 2014 Paris Motor Show
On its 290 sq. m. booth located in Hall 1, Booth D521, Faurecia will exhibit numerous products illustrating the role which Faurecia will play in fuel economy, in particular in weight reduction, within the frame of the Group’s participation in the French initiative for affordable vehicles offering mileage in excess of 117.6 mpg (U.S.). Faurecia will be part of the concept vehicles to be unveiled by French automakers and to which it will have largely contributed, mainly in terms of lightweighting and energy efficiency.
Faurecia will also present a physical demonstrator « center-piece » allowing visitors to get a very clear illustration of new technology developments. These innovations will largely feature new materials such as aluminium, magnesium or glass fiber and carbon fiber composites, all lighter than steel.
« Faurecia is proud to introduce the innovations developed for its French customers in the frame of its participation in the French initiative for affordable vehicles offering mileage in excess of 117.6 mpg (US). These innovations allow automakers to save up to 7.5g of CO2 per kilometer, or 12g per U.S. mile. Our demonstrator includes structural and semi-structural parts, especially in composites, an exhaust heat recovery system as well as a lightweight seat using an innovative architecture enabling to reduce vehicle length by more than one inch”, stated Christophe Aufrère, Director of Technology Strategy of Faurecia.
Faurecia will hold a press conference on its booth on Friday, October 3 at 9:00 am, with speeches by Yann Delabrière, Chairman & CEO and Christophe Aufrère.
