    Automotive Thermal Systems Division

    Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Systems, Ltd. (MHITS) has been marketing electric compressors for air conditioning systems for hybrid and electric vehicles since 2007 and has achieved reduced size and weight, as well as high efficiency, through the introduction of its unique scroll technology, inverter control system and optimized internal structure. In order to secure a higher level of in-car quietness, MHITS has now developed a new electric compressor that reduces the vibration by about 25% compared with the current model while maintaining the same size and performance, by optimizing the balance through an update of the internal structure.
