Jaguar drivers will now have a more thrilling motoring experience with BorgWarner’s pre-emptive on-demand transfer case, which is manufactured at its recently built energy-efficient plant in Oroszlány, Hungary. This makes the British automaker the first-ever European automobile manufacturer to feature the technology. Initially supplied for the all-new Jaguar XF, BorgWarner will also supply the AWD technology for the Jaguar F-PACE and XE.
According to Stefan Demmerle, BorgWarner powerdrive systems president and general manager, they are delighted to expand their long-standing collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover by offering a number of vehicle models with their cutting-edge pre-emptive on-demand transfer case. He said that their advanced AWD solution enables customers attain their ambitious efficiency and weight targets, and paves the way for accelerated development cycles. “Additionally, the transfer case offers superior dynamic performance and drivability.”
BorgWarner’s pre-emptive on-demand transfer case is directly connected to the vehicle’s control systems, which track signals such as wheel speed, accelerator pedal position, and steering wheel angle.
In order to improve AWD function, pressure from BorgWarner’s patented lightweight centrifugal electro-hydraulic actuator (CEH) compresses the clutch pack to evenly distribute torque between the front and rear as required.
The AWD transfer case provides pre-emptive and accurate linear clutch actuation for quick response, optimized vehicle traction and stability control. Moreover, it is equipped with BorgWarner’s HY-VO transfer case chain, which is enhanced for durable performance and high efficiency.
What’s more, the transfer case comes with a cutting-edge pumpless design and sump management for enhanced fuel economy. In order to improve fuel efficiency and performance, the compact chain and gear drive options reduce total vehicle weight and facilitate optimum packaging for space-constrained applications.
