    BMW y PSA colaborarán en híbridos pequeños

    #91367

    BMW y PSA Peugeot-Citroën han anunciado en un comunicado conjunto que van a ampliar su colaboración para sacar adelante un desarrollo nuevo para coches híbridos con tracción delantera. Ambas marcas ya disponen de tecnología híbrida, pero pensada para modelos más grandes, como el BMW 7 ActiveHybrid o el Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4.

    El acuerdo permitirá a estas empresas ahorrarse un dineral en costes. Es pronto para anticipar si solo se beneficiarían en la parte alemana los Mini o tal vez futuros modelos de la Serie 1. En cuanto a la parte francesa, hablamos de coches pequeños donde el sistema HYbrid4 es demasiado grande o demasiado pesado.

    De momento no hay detalles técnicos revelados, pero podemos hablar de híbridos puros o semihíbridos, con ambos motores dentro del vano, sin un eje trasero eléctrico (HYbrid4). Si la gama Mini 2010 ya es muy austera, no quiero pensar a dónde podrían llegar con un sistema híbrido.

    Me parece muy bien por la parte francesa el dar este paso adelante, hablé de ello con anterioridad.

    A fin de cuentas, los franceses ya tienen experiencia de campo en coches híbridos con los prototipos Citroën C4 Hybride y Peugeot 307 Hybride, que no han llegado a producción. Ambos prototipos funcionan con motor diesel, al igual que los proyectados 3008 y 508 híbridos, que saldrán a la venta a partir de 2011.

    BMW tiene actualmente en su gama dos coches híbridos, aparte del 7 ActiveHybrid tiene el X6 ActiveHybrid, el primero semihíbrido y el segundo híbrido puro. Por el tamaño de los componentes y de las baterías, estas soluciones son irrealizables para un coche pequeño, por lo que la base francesa se aproxima más al objetivo.

    Ayer se firmó el acuerdo entre BMW Group y PSA Peugeot Citroën.

    BMW Peugeot Citroën Electrification

    The BMW Group and PSA Peugeot Citroën have decided to enter into a new phase of their collaboration, by signing an agreement to set up a 50-50 equity joint venture named BMW Peugeot Citroën Electrification. The agreement was signed on February 1st by Norbert Reithofer, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, and Philippe Varin, Chairman of the Managing Board of PSA Peugeot Citroën. In October 2010, the two companies had signed a Memorandum of Understanding designed to expand their existing cooperation to hybrid systems.

    BMW Peugeot Citroën Electrification will focus on developing and producing hybrid components, including battery packs, E-machines, generators, power electronics and chargers, while also developing software for hybrid systems. Joint research and development, production and component purchasing will leverage significant economies of scale for both companies.

    First and foremost, this initiative of BMW Group and PSA Peugeot Citroën aims to develop standard hybrid components for the electrification of their vehicle ranges. Its goal is also to create an open European platform on those technologies that will help the European industry to structure itself in the field of hybridization. To that extent, the joint venture will both integrate suppliers by outsourcing development work and could sell hybrid components to other companies beside its two shareholders.

    Subject to approval by the relevant competition authorities, the joint venture is expected to launch its operations in the second quarter of 2011. The new hybrid components will equip both partners’ vehicles from 2014 onwards.

    The joint venture’s management, as well as the rest of its workforce, will be drawn from employees of both companies. Additional external staff will also be hired. The key management positions will be equally shared among the two companies. Wolfgang Güllich, currently responsible for BMW Group’s Purchasing Strategy, will be appointed Chief Executive Officer of BMW Peugeot Citroën Electrification, and Jean Leflour, currently Director Customer Satisfaction and Quality Planning at PSA Peugeot Citroën, will be appointed Managing Director.

    “This cooperative venture will enable us to achieve significant economies of scale in the field of electrification. It also represents an important step on the road to sustainable mobility,” said Norbert Reithofer. “With this joint venture, we are sure to develop and expand our expertise and to build a European leader in the field of automotive hybrid innovation,” noted Philippe Varin.

    The BMW Group and PSA Peugeot Citroën have been successfully cooperating on engines for several years, building together more than 1.8 million units from 2006 to 2010. In February 2010, the two companies agreed to develop the next generation of their jointly designed 4-cylinder petrol engine, which will also meet EU 6 requirements. The joint engine is currently built into a number of MINI, Peugeot and Citroën brand models.
