Bosch is con­fi­dent that its new bat­tery will po­si­tion them us as a mar­ket leader for 48-volt bat­ter­ies. This in­no­va­tive 48-volt bat­tery is stan­dard­ized for easy in­te­gra­tion into new ve­hi­cle mod­els, thus elim­i­nat­ing long and ex­pen­sive de­vel­op­ment pro­cesses. “Bosch is an in­cu­ba­tor of elec­tro­mo­bil­ity. We help man­u­fac­tur­ers re­duce their de­vel­op­ment times and launch their prod­ucts faster,” says Dr Rolf Bu­lan­der, chair­man of Bosch Mo­bil­ity So­lu­tions. The com­pany es­ti­mates that some 15 mil­lion 48-volt hy­brid ve­hi­cles will be on the road by 2025 and, with its new bat­tery, Bosch in­tends to play a key role in mak­ing the 48-volt hy­brid af­ford­able for the mass mar­ket. Pro­duc­tion of the bat­tery is sched­uled to start in late 2018.
