Robert Bosch GmbH Key Developments
Bosch Rubbishes Lawsuit Led by Indian Employee Kamath
Nov 22 13
Bosch dismissed as "mischaracterization of the facts" the allegations leveled against it in a lawsuit by Indian employee Suraj Kamath of discrimination against staff who are not US citizens. Bosch said that as an employer, the firm is fair and abides by the legal requirements in all countries. Kamath, who was working for Bosch's US subsidiary, has filed a class action suit against the company alleging harassment over tax refunds. Seeking heavy damages, Kamath has charged that Bosch unjustly enriched itself by requiring all its non-US citizen employees to pay to Bosch federal and state tax refunds they had received while working in the US. It is estimated that over 160 persons are part of the class action suit.

Bosch Receives EU Approval for a System for Hybrid Vehicles
Nov 11 13
Bosch has now received EU approval for a system for hybrid vehicles that the EU considers 'an innovative technology for reducing CO2 emissions'. The system uses navigation data to adjust the vehicle's battery charge state. The technology that the EU Commission furthermore described as an 'eco-innovation' thus provides a benefit that can be used as a credit to offset the passenger car fleet emissions of the respective automobile manufacturer. Hybrid vehicles, in contrast to conventional vehicles, are able to recuperate some energy during braking by using their electric motor as a generator to charge the battery. Since a sufficient amount of energy must always be kept available in the battery for electrical driving, it is not always possible to fully exploit the potential of braking energy recuperation in hybrid vehicles. This is particularly the case on long downhill stretches of road or when the brakes are applied very frequently. In such situations, the battery becomes 'too full' too soon if it has not been sufficiently depleted beforehand. Within the scope of EU certification, this Bosch development is considered a CO2-reducing measure. By linking the navigation system to the hybrid vehicle's driving strategy, the Bosch system provides a per-vehicle benefit that can be used as a credit to offset the fleet emissions of the respective carmaker - it can therefore also avert penalties that would be imposed when the legally prescribed average CO2 emission limit is exceeded.
