Webasto has added Microheat’s Hotshot, a hot washer fluid and windsceen de-icing system, to its aftermarket product range.

HotShot was officially launched at the Automechanika show in Frankfurt.

An agreement between Webasto and Microheat will bring HotShot to 50 countries. The product has been approved by the European TUV.

Webasto said HotShot would also be available in a wide range of 2006 full-size sedans and SUVs manufactured by two major vehicle makers. More than 20 global manufacturers are currently testing the system.
