Our electric air climate compressor with low weight and outstanding efficiency. Developed for the high-voltage classes HV2 and HV3, it is used in new energy vehicles of various classes. In cold outdoor temperatures, the compressor acts as a heat pump to reduce the energy flow from the high-voltage battery and thus increases vehicle range.

Nowadays, environmental protection has become one of the most concerned topics around the world.

This is where our vapor pump (EVAP) and fuel tank isolation valve come in play.
