New MAHLE Condenser Enables Faster EV Charging

The new design offers significantly higher power density than the current one.

MAHLE has introduced a new type of condenser for hybrid and electric vehicles that helps to accelerate traction battery charging.

The new design offers significantly higher power density than the current one. As part of the cooling system, the condenser is one of the components that ensures the battery is optimally cooled during fast charging and reliably protected against damage, according to the company.

The new condenser also provides sufficient cooling capacity for comfortable temperature in the cabin without taking up additional installation space. Because fast charging is a key factor in the acceptance of electric vehicles, the innovation from MAHLE contributes toward making this form of transport more suitable for everyday use and the mass market, the company asserted.

The new MAHLE condenser ensures that electric vehicles are optimally cooled during fast charging, while also providing the necessary power for cabin temperature control, according to MAHLE.

“Battery cooling is crucial for the performance of electric vehicles. In developing our new condenser, we were able to draw on our many years of expertise in thermal management,” explains Laurent Art, Director Advanced Engineering Thermal Management at MAHLE. “We’re confident that this condenser will give a further boost to the development of electric vehicles.”

Alongside the component design, the production process is also optimized to provide a lighter product that is less susceptible to corrosion and requires less refrigerant, adds the company.
