BorgWarner will be presenting solutions at the 68th International Motor
Show (IAA) in Germany, to make switch to a clean, energy easier.
This year, the booth will be themed at ‘Driving Tomorrow’. BorgWarner
will demonstrate its components and systems competence for hybrid and electric
vehicles, showcasing its complete portfolio of products for electrified
mobility: electric motors, battery and transmission technology, power
electronics and thermal management systems. Among the IAA exhibits will be the
company’s latest battery packs, P2 hybrid modules and the eAxle iDM alongside
the innovative e-Turbo technology.
Frédéric Lissalde, President and CEO, BorgWarner said, “Mobility has never been as fascinating and
diverse as it is today. The automotive industry is facing a lot of challenges
for which BorgWarner offers a broad range of solutions including technologies
for highly efficient combustion engines, various hybrid architectures and pure
electric vehicle systems. With
our broad portfolio of leading technologies, we are able to meet the demands of
this diverse market and support vehicle manufacturers worldwide.”
This year’s IAA, BorgWarner will demonstrate its leading edge systems
designed for the switch to electric mobility with the latest addition to its
product portfolio: compact battery packs for electric vehicles. They feature
standard cylindrical cells in compact designs for exceptional energy density.
Together with proprietary thermal engineering and battery management that leads
to breakthrough range and performance. Scalable designs enable faster
go-to-market for customers with custom modules.
The company will also showcase its integrated drive module, iDM. This
system solution combines specially developed power electronics with an electric
motor and transmission technology in a single compact package. Other important
system examples are the company’s on- and off-axis P2 hybrid modules which
provide vehicle manufacturers with the flexibility to convert their existing
combustion-powered vehicles to hybrid applications without having to change the
motor or transmission. The 48V solution facilitates fast-to market hybridisation
by enabling pure electric driving as well as hybrid functionalities such as
stop/start and regenerative braking.
The eTurbo development being shown alongside these innovations is a
turbocharger with an e-machine motor-generator attached to the same single
shaft as the turbine. When assist is needed, the e-machine spins up the turbo
shaft providing an almost instant torque boost. However, when more turbine
energy is generated from the exhaust flow than required, the e-machine harvests
this into electrical energy.
The company’s display is located in the Hall 9 and Booth B08.
