Stellantis it is transforming itself into a mobility technology company with the implementation of the latest technology on all fronts. Innovation, disruption and various technologies guide the production processes and the way in which the company relates and interacts with its customers, and are present in the cars that make up the range of its 14 iconic brands, six of which are present in Brazil: Abarth, Citroën, Fiat, Jeep, Peugeot and RAM.
Stellantis is sponsor of the 29th International Mobility Technology Congress and Exhibition SAE BRASIL
Sponsor of the 29th International Mobility Technology Congress and Exhibition SAE BRASIL, Stellantis will show some of its innovative technological solutions during the event. The show will take place on 24 and 27 November, at the Fundação Bienal de São Paulo, in Ibirapuera Park, and will bring together professionals and students interested in producing knowledge for technology and innovation in mobility in Brazil.
As part of the program of the event, on November 25, at 17:45, the president of Stellantis for South America, Antonio Filosawill participate in the panel “The path to the future of mobility: the C-Level vision” , which will discuss the constant transformation of society and the need to achieve the decarbonisation of mobility, linked to good socio-environmental governance practices.
In the Stellantis space, the company’s vision will be presented with the megatrends they summarize the future of mobility, including showings of combustion, hybrid and electric engines, showing audiences the difference between technologies and the importance of ethanol paired with an electric motor as part of the energy transition to electrification.
Also, visitors will find the Citroën Ami, an electric mobility solution and a smart alternative for urban commuting and logistics, and the Fiat 500e, an iconic model which is the brand’s first 100% electric car sold in Brazil. Other highlights are the technological applications already used by the company, such as thermography and the exoskeleton, which bring the concept of ergonomics of the future and Industry 5.0 technology to improve ergonomics in the company’s production lines.
With the advancement of new technologies and efforts towards decarbonization, different engines are being used around the world, such as combustion, hybrid and electric engines. To reinforce the vision of Stellantis, which works on hybrids with ethanol associated with an electric motor as a bridge to electrification, an animation will be shown showing how they work and the difference between them, facilitating public understanding.
The video shows the versatility of the hybrid engine by showing the two phases of the electric motor: in acceleration it assists the internal combustion engine, providing additional torque, and in deceleration it acts as an electric generator, recharging the car’s batteries. Other components of the hybrid vehicle are displayed, confirming that this technology saves fuel, increases range and reduces CO2 emissions.
These benefits are in line with Stellantis’ vision for electrification in Brazil, which it will advance in the form of hybrid models, combining electric propulsion and ethanol. Ethanol is a strategic asset of the country for cleaner propulsion. If we consider the well-to-wheel concept (“field to wheel”), ethanol is highly efficient in terms of emissions, because sugar cane absorbs 70% to 80% of CO 2 released in the production and combustion of fuel.
