Comfortable warmth simply by app
With the start of the cold season, for many drivers the day begins with annoying ice-scraping and a cold car. Eberspächer pre-heaters offer the possibility of setting off in a comfortably warm, ice-free car. The new EasyStart Web controller ensures more freedom and flexibility in winter driving: the pre-heater can be simply and conveniently operated using the app from any location in the world with network coverage. If your winter excursion is unexpectedly cut short, the pre-heater can be spontaneously activated via the app and your car will be warm and ready to go. In addition to comfort, it is safer to drive without winter jackets. Thick clothing increases the distance between the body and the seat belt and through this slack, the effectiveness of the seat belt can be reduced.
Eberspächer Sütrak wins sustainability award
Bus air-conditioning specialist Eberspächer Sütrak has won the International Sustainability Prize from the trade magazine busplaner. In the bus component category, the jury awarded the prize to the AC 250 – a roof-mounted air-conditioning system tailored to the central requirements of electric and hybrid buses. The integrated heat pump with innovative air-reverse function simplifies the previously complex refrigerant circuit: The air flaps change the direction of the airflow for a seamless transition between the cooling and heating mode. The refrigerant circuit remains the same in all operating modes. In comparison with conventional systems, this offers an advantage in terms of efficiency and at the same time reduces technical complexity and energy demands sustainably. The award once again confirms the outstanding technology of the bus air-conditioning experts. In 2014 Eberspächer Sütrak previously won the Sustainability Prize, which is awarded every two years, in the category of air-conditioning systems and heating.

ActiveSound System is "Innovation of the Year 2016"
Only a few months after the successful market launch for retrofitting, the Eberspächer ActiveSound System has been selected as the Innovation of the Year 2016. As part of the 15th Autobild Sportscars of the Year Readers' Choice, the jury voted for „Innovation of the Year“ and „Personality of the Year“ for the first time. With its ActiveSound system, Eberspächer was able to convince the jury and prevail against four competitors. The trailblazing technology enables diesel drivers to enjoy a sporty exhaust sound without having to sacrifice torque and the low fuel consumption of a diesel engine. At the touch of a button, the sound system produces a sporty, powerful sound – naturally within the legal limits – and, especially, raises the pulse rate of those diesel vehicle owners with sporty aspirations. The prize-giving took place at „Race Night“ in Essen on 25 November 2016.
