MAHLE offers seasonal leasing for air conditioning service units

Stuttgart/Germany, April 20, 2021

As the weather begins to get warmer, the air conditioning service will once again become a major part of daily workshop activities. For this seasonal business, MAHLE is now offering workshops a convenient leasing solution that gives them financial leeway. You can start the spring with a new MAHLE air conditioning service unit and benefit from MAHLE’s seasonal leasing offer, with lower rates in winter compared with the months in which the unit is in use and “earns” money.

  • New offer creates financial leeway for workshops thanks to reduced rates in winter
  • Start the spring with a new MAHLE air conditioning service unit and save money in months with low orders
  • Olaf Henning, Head of MAHLE Aftermarket: “Particularly attractive for small and medium-sized businesses”

“The air conditioning service is the new oil change for workshops. Especially because it is also required for hybrid and electric vehicles and is even functionally relevant for the drive and battery,” says Olaf Henning, Corporate Executive Vice President and General Manager MAHLE Aftermarket. “Our seasonal leasing offer will really ease the burden on small and medium-sized workshops in particular.”

At the end of the basic lease of 36 or 48 months, MAHLE offers workshops the opportunity to purchase the unit on good terms or to return it.

A good option to start with is the ACX 480—a winner of the Red Dot Award—which is intuitive to use and saves up to 50 percent of time spent on servicing. Workshop technicians use a smartphone app to view workflows and the unit status or automatically order a service. The ASA interface on the unit and the integration of the unit in the workshop network enable fast data exchange. The large touch screen, which is standard on all units, provides the user with a continuous display of all information and programmed procedures, as well as the current status. The service technician can continue to work on the vehicle while automatic software updates are performed in the background via Wi-Fi. For a time-saving service, the devices can be maintained remotely: workshops are able to obtain fast support directly on the unit via Wi-Fi.

Workshops have the option of upgrading the air conditioning service units with the MAHLE vehicle diagnostics tool—the MAHLE TechPRO┬« or BRAIN BEE Connex. The diagnostic system can detect and eliminate faults in the electronics or air conditioning system and check the status of the system and individual components. To better diagnose complex faults, the system can also activate compressors, valves, and fans.
