BorgWarner, a leading company in the development of clean technology solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles is banking heaving on mild hybrid technologies. The company foresees heavy demand for 48-volt mild hybrid technologies as they can serve as a cruscial in the journey towards providing customers with solutions that deliver more fuel efficiency, performance and features.
Boorgwarner’s expertise in engine technologies has been bolstered by its 2015 acquisition of Remy International and its plans to acquire Sevcon later in 2017. The company is working on developing one of the broadest ranges of readily available technologies for 48-volt mild hybrids.
Commenting on this, James R. Verrier, Chief Executive Officer, BorgWarner said that he foresees immense demand and opportunity for electrified vehicle technologies. He believes that 48-volt systems offer the benefit of high-volume economics and will ultimately lead to manufacture of automobiles which are cleaner and more energy-efficient. The company has an growing range of products and deep systems knowledge that can help automakers in this segment to achieve their goals quickly.
In the long run, BorgWarner expects 48-volt systems to attain more than 60 percent of the global hybrid vehicle market, with annual production slated to reach about 25 million units by 2027. BorgWarner’s 48-volt system solutions include eBooster electrically driven compressors and integrated belt alternator starters (iBAS) which are meant to capture and use waste energy like that generated during braking in the most efficient way, thus providing more power, efficiency and functionality. The company is currently ramping up mass production of its eBooster solution and launching it with three leading automakers including the latest 3.0-liter petrol engine from Daimler.
Borgwarner deals with multiple aspects of 48-volt product areas and according to Christopher P. Thomas, the company’s Chief Technology Officer, this helps the company to perfect how the individual technologies function as a system. This knowledge can be leveraged to help automakers not only when it comes to increasing fuel efficiency and engine right-sizing but can also offer opportunities when it comes to vehicle design, packaging space, and architecture. He added that depending on the baseline and application, fuel economy improvements could be as much as 20%.”
