BorgWarner’s High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) 410 electric motors propels Scania’s new Citywide hybrid bus. Positioned between the clutch and gearbox in a P2 layout, the 650-volt electric motor drives the vehicle at low speeds when enough energy is available. The motor also charges the battery by generating power while braking or driving downhill, and supports the shifting sequence in the automatic mode of automated manual transmissions. With their clean, quiet operation, HVH410 electric motors allow buses to operate in zero emission zones and noise-sensitive areas.
“Hybrid and electric technologies aren’t just for passenger cars. As a key enabler for parallel hybrid drive concepts for commercial vehicles, BorgWarner’s HVH410 electric motors help meet both market demands and emissions regulations. This application, as well as our development partnership for future programs with Scania, expands our comprehensive hybrid and electric product portfolio and reinforces our strong reputation as a global leader in clean and efficient technology solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles,” said Dr Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems.
BorgWarner’s HVH410 electric motors are available as fully housed motors or as rotor/stator assemblies.
