Webasto and Samsung SDI to cooperate in manufacture of commercial vehicle batteries

Webasto, global systems partner to almost all automotive manufacturers, and battery manufacturer Samsung SDI signed a letter of intent envisaging collaboration in the manufacture of high voltage batteries for the commercial vehicle sector.

The agreement covers the development and supply of a Samsung SDI’s battery module that is the optimized solution for Webasto’s standard multi-pack concept for commercial vehicles. Webasto will integrate Samsung SDI’s prismatic Li-ion battery cell module into its battery packs which can, in turn, be assembled to create a battery system. This system-based design facilitates custom solutions for the respective requirements of commercial vehicle manufacturers.

The development of battery systems is one of several strategic expansions of the Webasto product portfolio. The company’s commitment to electro-mobility is embedded in a double strategy which is based on the two pillars of “strengthening” and “participating”.

This includes the rigorous strengthening of the core business areas and also the opening up of new fields of business that match the competence profile of the company. In addition to the development of battery systems, this also includes a product portfolio of charging solutions for private and commercial customers.
