Chinese OEM ChangAn uses BorgWarner’s P2 hybrid solution
State VI emission standard will be officially implemented in 2020, but many local Chinese governments started executing the new standard in July 2019 to combat the increase in air pollution.
BorgWarner, a global product leader in clean and efficient technology solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles, has entered into an agreement with leading Chinese original equipment manufacturer (OEM) ChangAn Automobile to supply its triple-clutch P2 drive module and electro-hydraulic control unit for ChangAn’s new-generation hybrid transmission. BorgWarner expects to achieve mass production of its P2 modules on the new model of ChangAN in 2020.
State VI emission standard will be officially implemented in 2020, but many local Chinese governments started executing the new standard in July 2019 to combat the increase in air pollution. This, together with stricter fuel consumption regulations and the dual-credit scheme (which restricts fuel consumption of gasoline cars), has brought challenges for OEMs. As the traditional combustion technologies are unable to meet stricter emission requirements, development of innovative hybrid technologies has become a focus for the auto industry.
The highly integrated P2 drive module and electro-hydraulic control unit offer improved fuel economy and emissions, which are working for better system efficiency and performance. Its scalable, modular design covers different torques, 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.
Dr Volker Weng, President & General Manager, BorgWarner Transmission Systems, said, “We are thrilled to extend our partnership with ChangAn. Being awarded, this contract 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.”
