Mahle Aftermarket has provided independent workshops with the means to run battery diagnostics on electric vehicles by equipping its TechPro diagnostic tool with new software. The software will initially be available free of charge. As part of the further expansion of the diagnostic function, Mahle Aftermarket says it plans to develop suitable licensing models for its customers. By taking this step, Mahle says it is opening up new lines of business for independent workshops beyond the combustion engine.
A battery diagnostic check is necessary both for maintaining and repairing electric vehicles and for determining their residual value. The new battery diagnostic function will be installed on Mahle and Brain Bee TechPro diagnostic tools in workshops.
