MAHLE and Midtronics Join Forces for Battery Service

MAHLE and Midtronics Join Forces for Battery Service

Together, the two companies can offer shops a full range of services for electric vehicle batteries.

MAHLE and Midtronics, Inc. have agreed to jointly develop service equipment for battery electric vehicles. Both companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding.

This will empower workshops with safe, easy-to-use, and effective service for the important Li-ion battery: from battery diagnostics to maintenance, regardless of brand and over the entire life cycle of the batteries and vehicles.

MAHLE contributes its knowledge and experience in the areas of refrigerant service, ADAS calibration, BatteryPRO solutions and vehicle diagnostics.

Midtronics contributes its leadership position and technology in both low and high voltage battery monitoring, inspection, diagnostics, and service.

Together, the two companies can offer shops a full range of services for electric vehicle batteries.

“In the age of electromobility, battery service gets a whole new meaning for independent workshops. With our partnership with Midtronics, we are therefore opening up a new chapter for a one-stop battery service,” explained Georges Mourad, director global service solutions for MAHLE.

“Because of the speed of change in battery and electric vehicle technology, no company in the automotive service world is ready. This collaboration brings two leaders together to make it faster and easier for the aftermarket to transition to electric vehicle service,” said Will Sampson, president of Midtronics.

As the world transitions to e-mobility, the cost and complexity of EV batteries and systems have presented shops with one of the greatest challenges in the history of automotive service. The traction battery itself can make up over 25% of the overall vehicle cost and varies greatly from vehicle to vehicle. At the same time, the share of passenger cars with electric drive systems (BEV and hybrid vehicles) will grow to 95% in Europe, 90% in China and 75% in North America by 2035. Therefore, battery service could represent half of the overall service performed in shops.
