BorgWarner will supply its triple-clutch P2 drive module and electro-hydraulic control unit to China OEM ChangAn Automobile. The mass production of P2 modules on the new model of Changan will happen in 2020.
The highly integrated P2 drive module and electro-hydraulic control unit offer improved fuel economy and emissions. Its scalable, modular design covers different torques, is available with an optional E-motor and is compatible with high voltage PHEV, high voltage HEV and 48V systems. The compact, lightweight S-wind motor offers high torque density, especially suitable for P2 hybrids that are expected to become the mainstream of hybrid architectures.
“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with ChangAn,” said Dr. Volker Weng, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Transmission Systems. “Being awarded these contracts reinforces BorgWarner’s position in the global HEV market. It also validates the system integration ability of our modules. BorgWarner is committed to providing high-quality products and services to our customers and developing next-generation transmission technologies for more sustainable mobility.”
By placing the electric motor directly between the internal combustion engine and the transmission, BorgWarner’s on-axis P2 drive module delivers cost-effective hybridization by being compatible with existing vehicle platforms. The innovative P2 solution offers the possibility of integrating up to three clutches, including a disconnecting clutch, which allows the system to decouple from the engine for pure electric driving, enabling customers to achieve both their individual fuel-efficiency and performance goals. In addition, BorgWarner can supply the electrohydraulic controls for actuating the wet clutches, giving customers the option to choose individual components or a complete system.
BorgWarner’s P2 drive module is also available in an off-axis configuration. This design places the electric motor parallel to the main axis and connects the system via one of the company’s durable chain technologies, ensuring maximum torque transfer.
