New driving technologies require an advanced heating and cooling strategy
Range anxiety is currently the main barrier to battery electric vehicles (BEV) ownership and operation. The driving range of a BEV is severely affected by limited battery capacity and the significant energy demand to run the heating and cooling system. A battery-powered electric bus, for example, uses up to 50% of its energy to provide appropriate heating/cooling to passengers, the traction battery as well as so called Power Electronics and Electric Motor systems (PEEM).
Webasto's goal is to accelerate the electrification of the commercial vehicles industry: We provide highly efficient heating and cooling solutions which positively impact a vehicle's availability, ensure overall TCO reductions and guarantee an increase in the driving range.
