In Tianjin, Vitesco Technologies develops battery, motor and electronic control systems for battery electric, full hybrid and 48 V mild hybrid vehicles. The portfolio includes high-voltage drive systems, high-voltage control systems, high-voltage battery management systems, electrified 48 V drive systems and 48 V battery systems. In addition, the R&D center has a versatile laboratory for testing and validation. 

    "Our new R&D center will be an important hub for us in the Asia-Pacific region," said Changsong Yu, general manager of the Electrification Technology Business Unit in Asia. "We are unlocking great growth potential for the electrification business across the region and driving the transformation towards e-mobility with local resources in terms of research, development, production and marketing."
