BorgWarner to Supply to Two Dual Inverter Projects in China
BorgWarner is making significant traction in the China mobility market, most recently with contracts to supply dual inverters for two premier Chinese OEMs. The dual inverters will be featured on both hybrid electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle versions of the GWM LEMON platform, and the other major Chinese OEM will utilize the technology on its own HEV and PHEV passenger car models.
Production for the GWM dual inverter is currently underway, with and without a DC/DC converter option, which was launched on several 2021 GWM models. The project with the other major Chinese OEM is planned for 2023 models.
By combining different power electronic technologies into one compact package, BorgWarner’s dual inverter range is able to provide unrivalled functionality. A single unit can control and drive two electric motors while delivering cost and weight reductions, as well as enabling flexible packaging and easier installations. Additionally, BorgWarner’s dual inverter provides propulsion, energy generation and re-capturing of energy in hybrid powertrains.
