The choice of performance and innovation

Brittany’s automotive sector has redefined its business model, betting on performance and innovation, impulsing optimisation and industrial processes. Larger companies (PSA Peugeot-Citroen, Legris SA etc) and SMEs, as well as a network of research and technology transfer organisations (Insa Rennes, Maupertuis Institute and others) have gathered around the pôle Productique de Britain centre hat works to improve competitiveness (mechanics, materials, mechatronics , robotics, prototyping etc.), and finally around the ID4CAR competitiveness cluster driving innovation in 4 sectors: automotive; special vehicles; agricultural machinery, off road vehicles and mobile robotics; and finally mobility services.

A pioneering territory of carbon-free mobility

Relatively recent home to the automobile industry, Rennes and Brittany have now adopted a veritable culture of mobility issues. In support of the businesses, communities rapidly committed to an innovative positioning: the carbon-free mobility. From 2011, Rennes has been the national leader of electric mobility cities.

While the ID4CAR cluster combines ICT and sustainable mobility in one of its strategic priorities – alongside materials and embedded innovative systems -, the Brittany Green Vehicle plan is quickly being rolled out: supporting R & D projects and territorial deployment of experiments.  There is one single ambition: to make Brittany a reference in eco-mobility.
