BorgWarner to Supply Electric Motors for a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Truck

BorgWarner has been chosen to supply its High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) 410 electric motor for a plug-in hybrid electric truck (PHEV) that is slated to be launched in 2019. The electric motor plays a critical role in the range of vehicles including the likes of urban and night-time delivery trucks and waste handling vehicles.

The  HVH motor is capable of producing 174 hp of power and 1,050 Nm of torque. The HVH system will work parallel with an in-ine five cylinder motor that is fuelled by hydro treated vegetable oil (HVO) or diesel. The HVH motor is also capable of producing regenerative charge during braking and downhill coasting operations. The HVH410 technology is also used on citywide hybrid busses.

The BorgWarner HVH410 electric motor is available as a fully housed motor or as rotor/stator assemblies. The HVH410 uses precision formed rectangular wires and multiple layers of interlocking hairpins, instead of the conventional round wire windings. The patented high-voltage (650 volt) HVH motor is capable of delivering 2,000 Nm of torque and a maximum power output of 402 hp with its peak efficiencies exceeding 95 %.

BorgWarner is capable of customising the stack length, and the HVH electric motors have compact dimensions. The company can provide tailor-made solutions for the specific requirements of customers. The motors cooling and winding configurations cater to ease of installation on almost all electric and hybrid applications.
