As well as on the other hand building up new businesses for the mobility trends”, adds Engelmann. “Here in China, we extended our roof business and setup successfully the development and production of our electromobility portfolio.

Highly efficient solutions for electric and hybrid vehicles

Webasto presents its high voltage Standard Battery System that has the advantage of its modular design. Due to the use of standardized modules the product development process is shortened and the battery system is applicable in several vehicle segments. In addition, the corresponding Vehicle Interface Box (VIB) was developed as an interface between the battery system and the vehicle for user-defined system configurations and programming. The smart chargers TurboDX and Webasto Live allow flexible and future-oriented networking via the mobile network or via Bluetooth and thus can be controlled via app. Further connections such as LAN and WLAN make it possible to connect several charging stations with each other or integrate them into existing networks. A unique selling point of the Webasto Live is that, in addition to authentication via RFID or smartphone, it already supports the activation of charging processes via Plug & Charge. Thanks to their connectivity, the chargers Live and TurboDX™ are not only designed for end customers, but also for automobile manufacturers and commercial customers with their own vehicle fleets. In addition to that, Webasto is presenting the basic charger Webasto Pure and the portable charger TurboCord for convenient charging on the go.
