In 2018 Faurecia made significant progress in the deployment of this strategy whilst at the same time managing some headwinds that disturbed the market in the second half of the year. We demonstrated our agility to manage the short term and deliver on our commitments, whilst at the same time investing in our future.

At the CES in Las Vegas in January of this year, we highlighted the rapid progress we have made in developing new user experiences for the Cockpit of the Future. Many of these were developed with our innovation ecosystem which was expanded during 2018 to include Hella and five new start-up investments to complement the existing partnerships of Accenture, Mahle and ZF. In addition to completing the acquisition of Parrot Automotive, we announced a major strategic project to acquire Clarion, the Japanese supplier of in-vehicle-infotainment (IVI) and full digital audio systems, HMI and advanced driver assistance systems, connectivity and cloud-based services. With its core competences in electronics and software integration, this acquisition would significantly strengthen Faurecia’s offer for cockpit systems integration.

For Sustainable Mobility, we are focused on technologies for hybrid vehicles, which could represent 50% of the market by 2025, as well as for zero emissions vehicles, be they fuel cell or battery electric vehicles. We are also deploying our emissions reduction solutions into the High horsepower and Commercial Vehicles markets and to this end we completed the acquisition of Hug Engineering and re-negotiated our contract with our partner Cummins.

Even though the growth in the Chinese market slowed down in the second half of the year, it will still be the main driver of long term growth for the global automotive industry and will in particular see a rapid rise in electric vehicles. Faurecia continued its strategy of developing partnerships with Chinese OEMs, and concluded two new Joint Ventures with FAW and Wuling Industry. Our objective is to have 40% of our sales with Chinese OEMs, matching their share of the overall Chinese market.

I’d like to invite you to discover the main events as well as the strategic announcements that made 2018 a great year for Faurecia.
