Full Speed Ahead: Innovation for the Future Eberspächer’s research and development engineers are working today on the mobility solutions of tomorrow. They know their customers' requirements in the automotive and commercial vehicle industry, and they are key drivers of advances in the automotive industry.

At Eberspächer, pioneering technologies do not come by chance; they are the result of consistent and thorough innovation management. Some 600 developers worldwide are constantly optimizing our components, plants, systems, and manufacturing processes. Several new products come from this combined expertise in technology and process management. Good ideas systematically lead to strong solutions that offer our customers true added value. Following our company tradition, Eberspächer is building on its leading position as an expert technology partner for environmentally friendly and comfortable mobility around the globe. Year after year, six percent of our influenceable revenue (without monoliths) flows into research and development. Our strategy includes tracking technological trends and integrating them early on. This makes us one of the first ports of call in the automotive industry when it comes to trend-setting exhaust technology, vehicle heating and bus AC systems as well as automotive electronics.

It should supply commercial vehicles with on-board electrical power in the foreseeable future. Electrical Heating Our high-voltage PTC auxiliary heating elements control voltages between 200 and 500 volts, which is typical for electric vehicles. The emissions-free electrical heaters support air purification in congested urban areas. Bioethanol fuel-operated heaters work independently of the vehicle's power supply and don’t draw on the battery – the electric vehicle's range doesn’t suffer.
