More than just comfortable

Together with the BHTC (Behr-Hella Thermocontrol) joint venture, which is managed as the Control Units profit center, MAHLE developed the ECO A/C system as an air conditioning system for heavy-duty commercial vehicles. Climate comfort in the cabin contributes to a pleasant working environment, helps the driver to concentrate, and improves safety thanks to simple and intuitive operation of the air conditioning system. At the same time, the ECO A/C system requires significantly less energy—a remarkable 83 percent less—than comparable systems. Climate comfort and transport efficiency are thus no longer mutually exclusive.
