The future, today

Research and development is at the core of our growth strategy and our identity as a technology company. We are committed to developing new automotive technologies and finding solutions that meet and anticipate market demands, promote intuitive and safer driving, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (such as CO2) and pollution. This strong commitment to innovation is why we invested more than 10% of our original equipment sales in R&D.
