BorgWarner has Produced Over One Million GenV All-Wheel Drive Couplings in Sweden

BorgWarner’s Facility in Landskrona Provides Numerous Automakers with its GenV All-Wheel Drive Technology for Improved Traction, Stability and Handling

Auburn Hills, Michigan, September 14, 2015 – BorgWarner has produced over one million fifth generation (GenV) all-wheel drive (AWD) couplings at its facility in Landskrona, Sweden. Featuring a compact and lightweight design for easy integration into the drivetrain, the AWD coupling provides high torque accuracy for improved fuel economy. Since 2012, the facility in Sweden has met increasing demand for BorgWarner’s AWD technologies, providing this state-of-the-art solution to numerous major automakers.

“At BorgWarner, we are dedicated to developing innovative products, and this milestone clearly indicates the high performance of our top-selling AWD solution,” said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner TorqTransfer Systems. “BorgWarner’s advanced GenV AWD coupling offers enhanced traction, stability and handling for improved driving dynamics, providing a fun-to-drive experience.”

BorgWarner’s AWD coupling features an integrated electronic control unit with vehicle dynamics software that can be adapted to the customer’s requirements for unique driving characteristics. Optimized for practically all driving conditions and only providing the requested amount of torque to the rear axle, the coupling’s electronically controlled wet multi-plate clutch allows the torque distribution to be automatically varied between the front and rear axle. Depending on road conditions and vehicle load distribution, full locking torque is available at any given time and speed because the AWD coupling functions independently of the differential speed between the front and the rear axle. With its lightweight, high-performance design and class-leading response time, torque capacity and accuracy, BorgWarner’s GenV AWD coupling helps to significantly improve handling, traction and fuel economy.
