Webasto Entering EV Market With Level 2 Charging Solutions

The auto parts supplier and aftermarket equipment firm Webasto is now slated to enter the North American electric vehicle charging technology sector for the first time. It’s offering a suite of Level 2 plug-in electric vehicle charging stations.

The auto parts supplier and aftermarket equipment firm Webasto is now slated to enter the North American electric vehicle charging technology sector for the first time. It’s offering a suite of Level 2 plug-in electric vehicle charging stations.

Webasto’s new suite of Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging products will comprise part of a broader full-service EV charging program — which will include a nationwide professional quality installation and service network.

Part of the new EV charging tech suite — the Level 2 wall-mount charging products — will be on display at the upcoming CES 2018, the company has revealed.

Green Car Congress provides details: “The company will exhibit a range of Level-2 charging stations designed for North America, Europe, and Chinese markets at CES. Compatible with both Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles and Battery Electric Vehicles, these units are designed for home, business and multi-unit dwelling applications. Each are customizable to meet OEM vehicle-specific requirements.

“The company’s wall mounted solution provides up to 50-amp or 12 kW of charging power and can be offered with connectivity and smart home capabilities. The wall mounted solutions with connectivity features comes complete as a UL compliant system with intelligent load management and SAE J1772; IEC 62196 – Type 1 plugs for the North American market.”

So, yet another major auto industry firm is dipping its toes into the plug-in electric vehicle sector. While nothing much notable may end up coming out of Webasto’s shift here, it’s certainly worth keeping an eye on what happens next.
