ABOUT

QINOMIC, BRINGING INNOVATIONS FOR A LOW-CARBON MOBILITY

AUTOMOTIVE PASSION AND MASTERY OF INNOVATION

Our story begins in 2020. Four passionate partners from the automotive industry (Bertrandt, PSA, etc.) and major international groups realized that the transition to low-carbon mobility would necessarily include the emergence of retrofitting. 

 

Convinced that the sector requires specialized expertise, and with their experience in engineering for automotive suppliers and manufacturers, they decided to create QINOMIC. 

 

Their objective: bring to the market technological solutions to clean the mobility sector and accelerate its mutations thanks to the circular economy.

 

Since then, QINOMIC has partnered with a highly qualified team of engineers and mobility experts.

 

The ambition is to become the leader in sustainable and innovative mobility engineering and a major retrofitting equipment manufacturer, and thus accelerate the deployment of low-carbon solutions (electric or hydrogen) by creating value throughout the vehicle's life cycles.

 

Headquartered in Aix-en-Provence, QINOMIC also has a secondary office in Dieppe.

MOBILITY, ENERGY TRANSITION AND RETROFIT

In France, the automotive fleet is aging. Of the 38.3 million cars in circulation, the share of diesel is very high (57%) compared to low and zero emission engines.

 

Yet mobility must reduce its impact on the climate, public health and our dependence on fossil fuels, and support the energy transition.

 

Recent legislation has responded to these environmental challenges with :

  • The Loi d'Orientation des Mobilités (LOM), in 2019, which aims to transform mobility policy deeply. More specifically, it introduces Low Emission Zones (ZFE-m) for metropolitan areas with more than 150,000 inhabitants, to restrict circulation of the worst polluting vehicles.
  • The ban on sale of new gasoline and diesel vehicles from 2035, voted by the European Parliament in June 2022.

 

The traffic restrictions for the worst polluting means of transport will eventually affect more than 8 million vehicles.

 

Retrofitting, an innovative practice that allows thermal vehicles to be transformed into 100% electric or hydrogen-powered machines, complies with the major challenges of the energy transition in a circular economy dynamic: : we do not destroy, but rather rehabilitate, by virtue of innovative technologies, vehicles that are in perfect running order.

THE INDUSTRIALIZATION OF RETROFITTING, BY QINOMIC

On March 13, 2020, the General Directorate of Energy and Climate published in the Official Journal a decree legalizing the serial certification of retrofitted vehicles.

 

Qinomic sees in this decree a major potential for the massification and emergence of the retrofitting industry. With an experience of more than 30 years in the automotive industry and an expertise in upcycling engineering, QINOMIC teams know how to answer the technical complexities of conversion and industrialization. By developing technological bricks allowing the industrialization of retrofit, Qinomic immediately positions itself as an equipment supplier for the industry. 

 

"Innovation and performance are our daily driving forces to make our vision of future mobility a reality. To achieve this, we capitalize on an expert team and implement large-scale industrial partnerships." Frédéric Strady, CEO of Qinomic

 

The "Qinomic Inside" brand is positioned at the heart of the transition to clean mobility’s ecosystem with a scalable offer adapted to individual needs. Its technology and market positioning offer multiple perspectives in the mobility sector (cars, trucks, railways, ships, etc.)

 

QINOMIC's core abilities are deployed in the fields of vehicle architecture, electrical and electronic architecture, on-board software, power electronics, and more generally, both electric and hydrogen powertrains.
