BorgWarner announces several major orders
The US American automotive supplier BorgWarner has announced several new e-mobility contracts, ranging from supplying drive systems from the US and Europe all the way to China.
For the US American and European market deals, BorgWarner has been contracted to supply its high-voltage eFan system to a global OEM for use in European and North American markets. The eFan system can be applied to battery-electric vehicles (BEVs), as well as fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), and is to be used on for heavy-duty battery-electric trucks “to achieve the highest cooling requirements and deliver best-in-class performance”.
“BorgWarner has applied its expertise in fan performance, electric motors and power electronics to develop highly efficient eFan systems for a range of electric vehicles,” said Joe Fadool, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Emissions, Thermal and Turbo Systems.
In China, BorgWarner is to provide HVH eMotors for another leading Chinese automotive manufacturer. The eMotors will be used in the Chinese automaker’s hybrid DHT and range-extended REEV vehicles, with mass production expected to start in August 2023 in Tianjin.
Finally, BorgWarner was selected to supply battery packs for a series of electric buses. While not many details were revealed about the vehicles or their intended use, the battery packs will go to an electric bus manufacturer in Georgia. “We are eager to work together with our electric powertrain customer as we continue to cultivate and grow our relationship as partners focused on the future of electrification,” said Volker Weng, Vice President and General Manager, BorgWarner Drivetrain and Battery Systems.
