BorgWarner, one of the
leading providers of innovative and sustainable mobility solutions for the
vehicle market, has been selected to provide high-voltage hairpin (HVH) eMotors
for a leading electric vehicle (EV) brand in China. The eMotors will be used in
the company’s second-generation 800V propulsion system platform. The vehicle
model equipped with this platform is expected to start mass production in
October 2023.

“We are excited to
continue our partnership with this Chinese leader in EVs, working together to
succeed in the Battery Electric Vehicle sector. BorgWarner’s eMotors feature
premium reliability, higher efficiency as well as superior power and torque
density, and exemplify our extensive experience in e-mobility applications,”
said Dr Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive

The 800V oil-cooled
eMotors from BorgWarner are available as either motor assemblies or stator and
rotor subassemblies. They incorporate built-in, permanent magnet rotor and
proprietary stator insulation enhancement technologies, providing premium
durability and reliability. They deliver peak efficiency of over 96% and
feature patented HVH stator winding technology. In addition, the motor operates
with energy efficiency and environmental friendliness with excellent noise,
vibration and harshness (NVH) performance, and up to 4% higher power and torque
density compared to other products of its breed. During vehicle braking and
downhill, the motor can also convert mechanical energy into electrical energy
and charge the battery through the inverter.

BorgWarner has extensive
expertise and an esteemed reputation in the eMotor production industry, boosted
by the recent acquisition of Santroll Automotive Components, a carve-out of
Santroll’s light vehicle eMotor business. The acquisition is expected to
further strengthen BorgWarner’s vertical integration, scale and portfolio
breadth in light vehicle e-motors while allowing for increased speed to market.
