Those who drive forward innovations today will shape the mobility of the future

Innovation Is Happening Now

A climate of innovation that inspires

We Create the Future

Innovations are the foundation of our Company and the mobility of tomorrow. We systematically promote innovations, provide our employees with the necessary conditions and engage in close interaction with strong partners from research, teaching, and business. We have the courage to make changes and promote innovations in the profound belief that we can achieve a great deal using our own strength. We also invest specifically in new technologies and business areas. It is not for nothing that Smart Solutions are one of the four pillars of our Corporate Strategy. They lead directly to impressing our clients and give us joy in our work.

Clean and sustainable

The Future of Mobility

The mobility of tomorrow must be clean and sustainable. At the same time, users, whether in passenger cars, on trains, buses or on future modes of transport, expect a high level of ease of use and the comfort factor. This is precisely where we come in. Thermal management solutions from Eberspächer ensure optimum temperatures in vehicles of various kinds – in tropical heat and the bitter cold. In battery electric vehicles, a special kind of environmentally-friendly heating concepts is required as they must not put too much strain on the traction battery so as to maintain as great a range as possible. We also employ our expertise from heating and cooling in exhaust technology. In hybrid drives, the internal combustion engine cannot permanently maintain the optimum temperature due to switching between the electric drive and combustion engine. Or it loses it again when the engine control system switches from the internal combustion engine in urban traffic back to the electric drive. If the internal combustion engine is too cold, the exhaust system cannot work efficiently. Eberspächer develops reliable solutions here to guarantee optimum temperature control in the exhaust gas purification system. The electrification of mobility is making autonomous driving more important. The components from Eberspächer Automotive Controls ensure safety on the road and the efficient use of the available energy. 

Continuous progress – for a clean future


Low-emission and environ­mentally friendly

Innovative heating concepts are becoming increasingly important due to the require­ments of various drive technologies. Whether internal combustion engine, plug-in hybrid or electric vehicle: safety and comfort are always guaranteed with heating systems from Eberspaecher. To meet the challenge of the decreasing range of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in cold temperatures, modern heaters ensure the heating of the vehicle battery. This guarantees that performance is restored and the electric range is not impaired.


For a clean and quiet mobility

The innovative products of Eberspächer improve air quality and sustainably reduce traffic noise. Our experts find potential for reducing emissions in road traffic in the low- and high-temperature range of the exhaust system and the treatment of urea. The solutions are already fit for current international legislation such as China National 6, Bharat Stage VI and EPA Tier 3 and future ones such as EURO 7. In addition to the continuous improvement of pure combustion or hybrid engines, we are working on the trend topics of hydrogen and synthetic fuels.

Reliable energy supply

Autonomous and partially autonomous driving functions such as a lane departure warning system are based on electric functions. These must have a reliable energy supply to guarantee safe operation. Eberspächer high-performance switches and safety switches contribute significantly to safety in modern vehicles. Their job is to always provide electrical energy wherever it is needed. Components from Eberspächer allow for the safe, reliable further development of modern, future mobility concepts.


Automotive Electronics


Supporting "Mission Zero"

Hydrogen plays an important role in meeting global climate protection targets. By using hydrogen as an alternative energy source in industry and mobility, we can drive forward decarbonization. We are shaping the clean future with innovative solutions for hydrogen-based fuel cell systems as well as components and systems for hydrogen engines. Whether for stationary or mobile applications – we have many years of expertise and transfer this to new requirements.

Digital Services

In the digital age, simple products are transitioning towards networked systems that make users’ lives easier through intelligent solutions. Eberspächer offers digital services that give its clients the opportunity to establish new business models in the field of networked systems. The Eberspächer Digital Platform e-connected is a cloud-based solution to develop networked applications and implement digital business models. It combines the hardware in a wide range of application areas, analyzes their data, and specifically provides our clients with the most important information. Customized services can also be mapped on customer request without our clients having to develop and operate a dedicated system landscape. 

Next Shed

New business models with external expertise

Supporting startups as a customer right from the start

Next Shed is the venture client unit of the Eberspächer Group.

Next Shed aims to be an early customer for start­ups with promising solutions. This offers potentials for both sides: Close to our core business, we rely on bundled know-how to drive forward business cases in a future-oriented and scalable manner. For start­ups, Eberspächer offers support on the way to accelerated time to market since solutions can be tested in real situations in a very early stage and be demonstrated to the market. In a volatile environment, we offer valuable expertise, give access to an extensive network and the chance for sustainable growth.

The focus areas of Next Shed

As an early customer, we are supporting startups working close to our own business.
We are focusing on solutions within four focus areas:

Thermal Comfort for Mobile Use

Comfort covers many issues: Starting from heating and cooling, over solutions for an improved air quality, to noise reduction. Solutions are required for an optimized ambient climate.

Secondary Energy Supply

The demand for technologies for a self-sufficient energy supply is constantly increasing. The focus is on innovative approaches for energy storage, solar energy or other sustainable, mobile solutions for public utilities.

Temperature Sensitive Supply Chains

In several supply chains, the compliance with defined temperatures is crucial, for example when talking about pharma­ceuticals or groceries. Conformity with that is guaranteed by trace­ability. We are looking for digital, connected approaches to these trans­portation steps.

Digitalization & Connectivity

In a globalized and connected world, solutions and approaches for digitalization and connectivity are on everyone’s lips. Innovative approaches in the field of artificial intelligence or smart hardware solutions for thermal management, traceability and energy supply are needed for this.
