OEM-specific Battery Solutions: Tailored to your needs

Thanks to our ability to develop OEM-specific battery systems, we can respond to a wide range of customer requirements with a high degree of flexibility. We successfully develop customized or build-to-print battery solutions for passenger and commercial vehicles according to customer specifications.

Our strength

Established system supplier

More and more customers are relying on customized Webasto battery systems. In recent years, we have received orders from leading manufacturers of electric and hybrid vehicles.

Turnkey solutions

Based on customer needs, we offer flexible manufacturing options ranging from small batch production to multi-production lines and specialized single production lines for mass production.

Short time to market

From signing the contract to the start of production in just two years: Our broad competencies make a short time-to-market possible.

Global footprint

Our global network backs up one of our company's great strengths. In sales, we rely on a globally oriented, proven structure with local support through individual market knowledge.

We put it through its paces

The testing and prototyping center in Hengersberg, Germany, offers capacities for building up to 1,200 battery system prototypes per year, which allows us to guarantee a fast internal set-up and thus short development cycles. The heart of the testing facility is the e-MAST (electrified multi-axial oscillating table) for batteries. This unique structure allows complete battery systems to be charged or discharged according to customer specifications and tested under realistic conditions. Our in-house electronics development, testing and validation ensure reduced time-to-market from pre-development to the start of series production. Hengersberg is also the blueprint for other battery testing facilites, just like the chinese Webasto battery center in Jiaxing, China.

Production in Germany

Our battery production in Schierling, Germany

The Webasto plant in Germany is home to one of the most modern production facilities for battery systems - the highly flexible Multi-Product-Line, which can produce up to 40,000 battery systems per year.

 

The special feature of the plant is its flexible production as well as the modularity of the production stations.

 

Since 2019, battery systems for a European bus manufacturer as well as the company's own modular Standardized Battery Systems are produced here.

Production in Korea

Our battery production in Dangjin, Korea

On the 90-meter-long production line at the plant in Dangjin, around 100 colleagues at 39 stations together with 18 robots produce up to 100,000 batteries per year for our customer Hyundai-Kia Motors. A production cycle includes, among other things, the application of the thermal paste, the insertion of the cell modules and the assembly of the lid.

Sustainable battery production

In addition to technological progress, Webasto is also committed to its ecological responsibility. We think along the entire development, production and product cycle and actively work to reduce our ecological footprint with various initiatives and projects. At the Schierling site, a large part of the energy requirement is covered by our own photovoltaic system. With an output of up to 750 Kilowatt-Peak (kWp), battery production can be supplied completly with solar energy. Together with the 2 Megawatt (MW) combined heat and power plant, the PV system is an important building block in the overall strategy for sustainable battery production and a perfect example of a comprehensive energy concept. In the coming years, the site will be continuously developed - with sustainability as the guiding principle.
