BorgWarner has announced its latest High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) electric motor, the HVH 320, to power commercial vehicle hybrid and electric applications.
Production of the HVH 320, which is equipped with 800V capabilities and available in four variants, is expected to kick off in 2024. BorgWarner says its multi-faceted platform will support the manufacturers’ goal of a common electric drivetrain and deliver approximately 97% peak efficiency and over 400kW of power.
BorgWarner says the motor offers clean and quiet operation while reaching a torque output of up to 1270 Nm. The technology supports the vehicle’s shifting sequence and charges the battery by generating power while braking or driving downhill, the company adds.
The HVH 320 motor is the newest addition to BorgWarner’s portfolio of HVH series motors, which are offered to both light-duty passenger cars and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. These motors feature patented stator winding technology, are easy to integrate and are available as fully housed motors or as rotor/stator assemblies. Additionally, the motors can be used in a variety of architectural positions throughout a vehicle, the company says.
BorgWarner says it also offers inverters that can achieve the same, next-generation 800-V level.
