At present the battery industry is reshaping as Start-Stop technology determines the future. The reason for this is the stringent laws to significantly reduce CO2 emission of cars set by the EU. The key to achieving this aim are Start-Stop vehicles.
Nowadays workshops must be able not only to service batteries in conventional vehicles but also complex high-tech automobiles equipped with Start-Stop technology and Battery Management Systems (BMS).
VARTA® provides not only quality products but also services and know-how for this futureoriented development.
