Open the convertible top and off you go. Driving a convertible can be pure joie de vivre. Since 1986, Webasto has been making it possible for passengers all around the world to enjoy fresh air and views with its convertible roofs. Webasto produced its first convertible roofs for the BMW 3 Series convertible, and since then, the company has worked on many other projects. Today's convertible roofs incorporate decades of engineering expertise. Our experts use this know-how to develop innovative convertible roofs that continue to set new technological standards. Webasto is also a reliable partner along the entire value chain.
Solutions for the highest demands
Convertibles today can be driven in any weather and throughout the year. Opening and closing a roof while driving a convertible is as important as having optimally tuned acoustics and thermal insulation when driving with the top closed. Even with the side windows fully open, air circulation is pleasant and nearly draught-free, making a ride in a convertible an experience with nothing more but a pleasant breeze.
As a world market leader for convertible roof systems, Webasto has been developing and producing soft tops, retractable hardtops (RHTs), and now, hybrid soft tops for many automotive manufacturers over the last 35 years. Webasto’s customers particularly appreciate our comprehensive service - from conception to series production or in providing customized solutions.
Our innovative functions
Opening and closing times, impermeability and isolation, acoustics and last but not least, its appearance—the demands placed on modern convertible roofs could not be higher. Webasto's solutions meet them with flying colors and continue to set new standards.
Fast opening and closing functions
Light and joy of life at the touch of a button: Convertible tops from Webasto can be opened while driving at the touch of a button in just a few seconds. In one fluid movement and with a minimum of noise, they disappear under a soft top flap despite the airstream. This complex, kinematic process incorporates the cumulative technological expertise of Webasto's developers from 35 years of experience in the convertible segment. The top is opened and closed quietly and efficiently using a hydraulic or electric drive. It can be triggered at a driving speed of up to 50 km/h or by remote control. The compact size of our convertible tops also benefits the opening speed: the large top of the VW T-Roc, for example, opens and closes in less than 10 seconds.
Our quality standards
Webasto relies on premium materials and experienced production staff to develop, offer and produce its extensive portfolio in such a way that the most diverse convertible tops meet high quality standards worldwide.
Webasto's processes and workflows in development and production are constantly being refined. In addition, the international competence centers ensure that the highly specialized products are delivered to customers in the desired quantities and in the highest quality after start of series production.
To ensure quality, convertible tops from Webasto have to pass extensive tests under extreme conditions.
