Webasto Launches the Webasto Go Charger

The mobile charger is a globally certified product and is now available in the U.S. and Canada for EV owners to purchase.

Webasto Charging Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of Webasto Group, announced it launched the Webasto Go, a Level 2 mobile EV Charger, for electric vehicle owners at the Fully Charged LIVE North America 2022 Show in San Diego, California, Sept. 10-11, 2022. Audiences in the eastern U.S. can also experience the launch at The Battery Show North America 2022 event in Novi, Michigan, Sept. 13-15, 2022.

The mobile charger, developed, tested, and produced by Webasto, is a globally certified product and is now available in the U.S. and Canada for EV owners to purchase at major retail stores or directly on the Webasto EV Solutions website. Further roll outs are planned for the rest of the world, the company says.

“I am excited to now offer the same product performance and high quality to our end-consumers as we have done for our automotive customers,” said Greg White, senior director of Sales for Webasto Charging Systems Aftermarket. “The Webasto Go is a great addition to our wallboxes and overall EV product portfolio, and we can’t wait to launch the same easy-to-use and safe mobile chargers in Germany, Europe and other regions soon.”

The Webasto Go charger is a global application that comes with region-specific certifications such as UL, cUL, CE and more. The premium dual-voltage (120V and 240V) portable electric vehicle charger is designed to charge all types of EVs, whether at home or on-the-go, the company says.

Delivering up to 32A, the Webasto Go can add more than 20 miles of driving range per charging hour; enough for most EV drivers to fully charge overnight. Webasto says the charger is robust, durable, and designed to endure harsh outdoor conditions while keeping users safe from electrical hazards.

Webasto adds its Webasto Go meets the highest safety standard with grid plug temperature monitoring and leads the industry with Webasto-patented features, like plug-specific electrical current limitations, automatic adapter detection and built-in temperature sensing. Webasto Go has a IP67 rating, which means it can be submerged in up to three feet of water, allowing users to safely charge indoors or outdoors, no matter the weather conditions.

In the U.S., each Webasto Go set includes a NEMA 14-50 grid plug for Level 2 charging and a 120V grid plug for Level 1 charging; it also features a durable 20-foot cable, which makes charging at home or on the road convenient, the company says. The European version will provide the same high quality and safety features and will be delivered with region-specific grid plugs.
