SIA Powertrain Versailles 2017

June 7 & 8, 2017 – Versailles

For his comeback, Mov’eo is partner of the famous Sia Powertrain Versailles 2017 edition.

The 2015 edition was a fantastic success: more than 400 participants, 50 technical papers, from more than 18 countries. Be part of this adventure and the Gasoline Powertrain revolution. Submit an abstract before November 2, 2016

The automotive industry is entering one of the most exciting periods in its history: driving aids, high-tech embedded systems, connected cars, large-scale hybridization… in an ultra-competitive environment.

Automotive powertrains, especially gasoline, are first in line to benefit from these opportunities but also to meet future challenges: provide global solutions at reasonable costs and provide performance benefits with increasing respect for environmental issues. Implementing overall powertrain optimization strategies plus hybrid energy distribution will also confirm transmissions’ key role.

In this context, the 2017 SIA Powertrain Congress in Versailles will address “The low CO2 gasoline engine of the future and its hybridization.”

The gasoline engine, hybrid or not, has a major role to play:
– It supports the international development of the automotive industry by meeting most global market needs,
– It now offers leading performance through downsizing, and its strong synergy with hybridization helps optimize benefits vs. costs.
