      Continental Powertrain is now Vitesco Technologies and is exhibiting innovative motorcycle solutions at EICMA

      • A wide product portfolio, from engine control units to sensors and actuators, fuel and exhaust gas management—customized for the latest regional emission regulations
      • Series development of a 48-volt electric drive is in the starting blocks
      • Vitesco Technologies presents its two-wheeler innovations in Hall 9, Stand O68, together with Continental

      Regensburg, 30. October 2019. Vitesco Technologies is a new player in the motorcycle market at EICMA 2019 (public days 7–10 November), but it is also an old acquaintance: Continental's Powertrain division was carved-out as part of the corporation's realignment process and now operates under the name of Vitesco Technologies, with its own corporate design, its own online presence, and its own social media accounts (addresses below). The reason for the carve-out of the Powertrain division is because the market environment has changed very quickly and very differently from region to region due to the more stringent exhaust emission regulations globally. Organizational independence gives Vitesco Technologies the required entrepreneurial scope to respond promptly and individually to the wide range of requirements. This is expressed in the name: “Vitesco," derived from vita (Latin for life), stands for energy, speed, and agility, and “Technologies” underpins the innovative aspiration to offer pioneering technologies, systems, and services.

      Just like Continental Powertrain, 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). In addition, Vitesco Technologies is working intensively on electric drives for two-wheelers and is thereby benefitting from extensive know-how in the passenger vehicle sector, where Continental has been a pioneer of drive electrification for many years. This focus is 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. Experts from various divisions will be available at the stand to answer any questions you may have.
