Webasto is a pioneering German supplier of sunroofs, panorama and convertible roofs as well as heating systems for all drive types. Recently, Webasto added charging solutions and battery systems to their range. The company shows that innovation pays off as it is continuously setting technology trends – and has been doing so for decades..
Based near Munich, Webasto is always looking for new business areas aligned with their expertise. At the moment, the focus is on the development of a product and service range for electromobility with charging solutions and battery systems.
Here, customers benefit from Webasto’s vast experience in thermos management, the automotive and electronic industries and, of course, the long-term partnerships with OEMs.
Webasto produces high-quality charging stations that enable electric cars to be charged safely, easily and quickly. Thanks to the combination of hardware, installation, service and connectivity, Webasto offers full-service solutions from a single source and concentrates on the private and semi-public sector.
The highly compatible stationary charging stations have an output of up to 22 kilowatts and comply with the highest safety and quality standards and OEM standards. Available since autumn 2017, the innovative ‘Webasto Pure’ wallbox charges with alternating current and enables end customers to charge easily at home.
Currently, Webasto is developing an ‘intelligent’, future-proof and globally usable charging station with network and SmartHome compatibility. It is designed for automotive manufactures and commercial customers and will be available by the end of this year.
