THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY: THE FUTURE OF MOBILITY
The automobile industry, another major sector of excellence in Normandy, generates around 45,000 direct jobs and 150,000 indirect jobs, which places it as the leading industrial employer in the region!
This dynamic sector, led by the Mov’eo competitiveness cluster, covers the entire supply chain with the presence of world-famous manufacturers (Renault, Alpine, PSA, Renault Trucks), major equipment manufacturers (Faurecia, Bosch, Valeo) and a network of competitive subcontractors. The presence of all the players involved in the challenges of clean and intelligent mobility (industrialists, research centres, high-level academics and local communities) as well as its integration within the Seine Axis, have helped make Normandy a territory of excellence in automotive research and development. As for innovations, did you know that Normandy is truly the cradle of the French electric engine? In fact, it is at its Cléon plant in Seine-Maritime that Renault, a pioneer and European leader in electric mobility, is developing the assembly of these engines to meet the challenges of ecological mobility transition.
