BorgWarner Reveals Innovative Drivetrain Technologies at Arctic Drive Event in Sweden

BorgWarner’s Advanced All-Wheel Drive Solutions Improve Vehicle Dynamics and Drivability even under Extreme Conditions

Auburn Hills, Michigan, March 17, 2016 – BorgWarner demonstrates its latest drivetrain technologies in March 2016 at the annual Arctic Drive event in Arjeplog, Sweden. Supporting major trends, BorgWarner presents its one-speed disconnect pre-emptive on-demand AWD transfer case, latest advancements in torque vectoring and all-wheel drive coupling technology and the proven front-wheel drive eLSD technology (FXD) as well as many other technologies. All drivetrain solutions tested at this event provide excellent vehicle dynamics and significantly improved drivability even under extreme cold and icy conditions.

“Our long-standing expertise in state-of-the-art front- and all-wheel drive technologies enables us to meet demand for increased traction and vehicle stability on nearly all terrains,” said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems. “At BorgWarner, we are committed to constantly improving our innovative technologies to meet our customers’ requirements by providing solutions that offer excellent traction and vehicle stability as well as a unique fun-to-drive experience.”

BorgWarner’s pre-emptive on-demand transfer case directly connects to the vehicle’s control systems and provides pre-emptive and precise linear clutch actuation for immediate response, improved vehicle traction and stability control. In addition, it features BorgWarner’s HY-VO® transfer case chain for high efficiency and durable performance as well as the patented lightweight centrifugal electro hydraulic (CEH) actuator. The transfer case also features an innovative pumpless design and active sump management for improved fuel economy.

BorgWarner’s innovative front-wheel based all-wheel drive technologies that improve fuel economy ranging from high efficient driveline solutions to driveline disconnect systems will also be featured. Various hybrid architectures delivering both, hybrid vehicle functionality as well as electric all-wheel drive (eAWD) and full-function torque vectoring will be demonstrated in addition to compact torque vectoring (CTV) technology which provides compact size, low weight and versatility while delivering superior vehicle handling and optimal performance for the driver, particularly on slippery roads.
