BorgWarner Demonstrates Innovative Technologies at Arctic Drive Event in Sweden

BorgWarner’s New Drivetrain Technologies Enhance Drivability even under Extreme Conditions with Improved Vehicle Traction and Handling, Driving Dynamics and Active Stability

Auburn Hills, Michigan, February 25, 2015 – BorgWarner tests its latest drivetrain technologies at the annual Arctic Drive event in Arjeplog, Sweden, in February 2015, proving its ability to enhance drivability even under extreme cold and icy conditions. BorgWarner’s upcoming solutions support current major trends such as stop/start systems, torque vectoring and disconnect technologies. BorgWarner also presents the proven GenV all-wheel drive (AWD) coupling and front cross differential (FXD) for front-wheel drive (FWD) vehicles, which provide excellent vehicle stability even under the harshest conditions.

“All-wheel drive systems continue to be in demand across all vehicle segments, and our customers benefit from our many years of experience in advanced FWD and AWD technologies,” said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner TorqTransfer Systems. “At BorgWarner, we are driven to take our technologies to the next level. Our latest technologies significantly help to reduce weight and contribute to a fun-to-drive experience with maximum performance as well as improved fuel economy.”

Improving the efficiency of the drivetrain is a key objective for global automakers. Engineered to increase performance, traction and vehicle dynamics, BorgWarner’s new AWD technologies are tailored to meet the need for more stability with simplified system integration. BorgWarner’s intelligent GenV AWD coupling automatically distributes power between the front and rear wheels to provide maximum stability. Featuring a lightweight and compact design, the GenV AWD coupling can be easily incorporated into the powertrain. Specially developed for front-wheel drive (FWD) vehicles, BorgWarner’s FXD electronic limited slip differential establishes a controlled locking torque and directs power to the wheel having better traction, and enhances traction and handling without sacrificing engine power.
