PTC Heater for Bus

Webasto SE (Webasto) announced that it will present its electromobility portfolio at the IAA Transportation, under the motto “Ensuring mobility of the future”. Webasto will be exhibiting the successor to the standard battery system. The NextGen Battery further expands on the benefits of the first generation and delivers significantly more energy from the same installation space. The NextGen is expected to be available from 2024. An example of the passenger car battery, which Webasto manufactures for Hyundai-Kia and other automakers, will also be on display at the booth. Webasto supplies the battery, thermal management system, and so-called Vehicle Interface Box (VIB) – the interface between the vehicle and the battery for heavy-duty trucks. In addition to the VIB, Webasto has offered the Vehicle Interface Gateway (VIG) since June. This can control up to nine battery packs in a 400-volt system and up to 18 in an 800-volt system, up to a total capacity of 630 kWh. The VIG is used by Turkey’s leading bus manufacturer Otokar. The Webasto eBTM 2.0 is a stand-alone thermal management unit for traction batteries. With the High-Voltage Heater (HVH), Webasto also has a powerful heating system for hybrid and electric vehicles in its portfolio. Alongside its battery systems, Webasto is also exhibiting the Webasto Unite charging station, which offers a charging capacity of up to 22 kW. (From a press release dated September 14, 2022)
