eMove360°: Webasto Presents Charging Solutions for Every Purpose

Stockdorf/Munich – October 16, 2018 – At this year's eMove360° (October 16 to 18) in Munich, Webasto, one of the 100 leading suppliers to the automotive industry, will present its comprehensive, global range of charging solutions for hybrid and electric vehicles in hall A5, booth 608.

Webasto presents two intelligent charging solutions as highlights: Webasto Live for the European market and Webasto TurboDX™ for the American and Asian markets. They enable flexible 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. The main difference between Webasto Live and other charging stations 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 charging stations Live and TurboDX™ are not only designed for end customers, but also for automobile manufacturers and commercial customers with their own vehicle fleets. The associated digital services include remote access via app, live tracking of all charging processes, reporting of charging data and cost-optimized charging.

Webasto shows two further convenient solutions for easy charging: The entry-level charging station Webasto Pure with high charging performance and maximum safety and the portable charging solution TurboCord™ for hybrid and electric vehicles. It is connected directly to the socket and therefore does not require the installation of a charging station.

Since 2017, Webasto has been producing high-quality charging solutions that enable safe, simple and fast charging of electric cars. Thanks to the combination of hardware, installation, service and connectivity, Webasto offers full-service solutions from a single source and concentrates on OEMs as well as the private and semi-public sector. Webasto leverages its automotive and electronics expertise and existing global aftermarket organization to provide charging solutions. With the recent acquisition of the Efficient Energy Systems (EES) business unit of California-based AeroVironment the product portfolio was expanded to include charging stations and services for industrial applications as well as solutions for the American market.
