BorgWarner announces major order for the P3 Drive
BorgWarner is to deliver the P3 hybrid drive module for a major European performance-based OEM that intends to use it for a variety of front-wheel and AWD SUVs. The module contains the motor, power electronics, gears and water cooling all integrated within one unit.
The company promises that P3 solution enables significant fuel economy gains, CO2 reduction and was entirely custom-designed in-house by BorgWarner. The module is powered by a permanent magnet motor and complementary inverter that BorgWarner built from the ground up for this application. The electric motor features BorgWarner’s S-wind wire forming process for electric motors and alternators, and the system is capable of peak power up to 25 kW. Additionally, the P3 module also encompasses disconnect and energy regeneration capabilities.
“Ensuring that integrated electrification systems like our P3 module seamlessly and efficiently control everything from the incoming power of the battery to output torque that’s driving the car forward is no easy feat,” said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems. “BorgWarner’s latest drive module is a premier example of our team’s comprehensive understanding of the processes, system engineering, software and integration expertise needed for high-performing hybrid applications.”
