We join forces with Peugeot Sport

In April 2022 we signed a multi-year partnership with Peugeot Sport to provide the PEUGEOT 9X8 FIA WEC program team with advanced digital tools.

Capgemini has joined forces with Peugeot Sport to accelerate and optimize the development of its hybrid hypercar, the Peugeot 9X8, racing in the World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC), an international motorsport competition with several races including the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

We will be making our advanced data analysis and artificial intelligence expertise available to Peugeot Sport’s experts. This partnership has a strong technological dimension and reinforces our relationship with the Stellantis Group, while bringing to life our shared values and ambitions to shape the future of mobility through innovative, sustainable solutions.

Motorsport, and more particularly endurance racing, has always been a research laboratory for car manufacturers. For instance, the collaboration between Capgemini and Peugeot Sport will allow for more precise management of the energy used, both during acceleration and regeneration phase, which is one of the key elements in the performance and reliability of the 9X8 in the championship. PEUGEOT production cars will benefit from the advances made by the Peugeot Sport and Capgemini teams in improving the performance of the Hypercar racing in the championship.
