BorgWarner will supply its HVH250 electric motor and eGearDrive transmission for the initial launch of the Fuso eCanter all-electric truck. The eCanter is in production now, and according to Fuso, more than 200 third-generation units are being tested in urban areas.

“For several years, BorgWarner’s engineers worked closely with Fuso on this milestone project,” said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, president and general manager of BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems. “We are excited to offer our efficient, eco-friendly technologies as Fuso paves the way for powerful and sustainable commercial vehicle mobility.”

Instead of conventional round wire windings, BorgWarner’s HVH250 electric motor uses precision-formed rectangular wires and multiple layers of interlocking “hairpins.” This high voltage hairpin (HVH) technology enables the HVH250 motor to produce up to 425 Nm of torque and 300 kW of power at 700 volts, the company noted. BorgWarner also touts the motor’s compact design, efficiency and continuous power capabilities.

BorgWarner touts the eGearDrive transmission’s compact, low-weight design and efficient gear train that allow it to use less battery energy, extending battery-powered driving range. According to the company, the transmission can handle high input speeds of up to 14,000 RPM, offers a wide range of gear reduction ratios for optimal acceleration for a variety of motor sizes, and is made up of 99% recyclable materials.
