Schwäbisch Hall, June 23, 2017. According to a study by management consultant PricewaterhouseCoopers, every third European new car registration could be an electric car by 2030. Hybrid and electric cars require electrically powered compressors since, instead of a combustion engine, a battery provides their energy. Thermal management expert Behr Hella Service has therefore been offering compressors for hybrid and electric vehicles for more than six years. As of early July 2017, the company will expand its portfolio by aggregates from compressor specialist Sanden. The Japanese automotive supplier already developed the first electric compressor for electric vehicles in 1990. Today, it owns various e-compressor patents. Behr Hella Service exclusively sells Sanden e-compressors on the Independent European Aftermarket.
"We're glad to welcome with Sanden yet another automotive supplier championing our sales network, simultaneously enabling us to expand our PREMIUM LINE range for our customers", says Jörg Laukenmann, Head of Marketing at Behr Hella Service. The company introduced a new product marking system in early 2017. The PREMIUM LINE identifies some 4500 products made by manufacturers with Original Equipment (OE) expertise. In addition to various articles produced by BEHR, AKG and Visteon, the latest Sanden compressor generation now also forms part of it. It comprises different vehicle models, among the Mercedes Benz B-Class or the Volvo V60 hybrid.
