BorgWarner receives major order from Germany
The supplier BorgWarner has received an order to supply electric drives for a new electric truck from a German OEM. The unnamed manufacturer intends to use the technology in electric trucks for heavy distribution transport.
The trucks are to be equipped with two HVH250 motors per axle, each of which will “achieve a peak power of 175 kW and a torque of 425 Nm at 350V”.
“We are delighted to provide our electric drive technology for this battery-electric truck for heavy-duty transport. Our proven HVH250 motor delivers the power and durability required for this demanding application,” said Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems.
BorgWarner has been manufacturing its HVH250 motors for more than ten years. The company’s electric motor is said to offer customers “peak efficiencies of more than 95 %” and features “patented stator winding technology”. Further, the HVH250 is offered a choice of direct drive, chain drive, belt drive or integrated options, either with a complete housing or as a rotor-stator assembly. “It is also equipped with an internal permanent magnet rotor and a special insulation system for even more durability,” a statement said.
The HVH250 electric motor is already used in the FUSO eCanter. BorgWarner has not yet named the current customer. There is only talk of a German OEM.
