Webasto announced Wednesday it is entering the North American Electric Vehicle charging market and will unveil a full service electric vehicle (EV) charging program next month.
“OEMs want partners who understand and quickly adapt to their development cycles, specifications and evolving engineering needs,” says Fabian Bez, globally responsible for the business unit Thermo & Comfort. “As a technology leader for thermal systems, it is our goal to become the leading system supplier of charging solutions for electric vehicles.”
Webasto says next month it will exhibit an array of Level-2 charging stations designed for North America, Europe and Chinese markets. Compatible with both Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles and Battery Electric Vehicles, these units are designed for home, business and multi-unit dwelling applications, Webasto says. Each are customizable to meet OEM vehicle-specific requirements. They are designed to meet the highest international standards for safety and once installed, will deliver reliable service and a positive end user experience, the company says.
