BorgWarner’s boost module, directly integrated into the 400V dual inverter, delivers impressive power in a compact design, meeting strict local standards for hybrid systems.

Marking a significant achievement, this collaboration with the Chinese OEM marks BorgWarner’s expanding product portfolio and introduces the industry’s first 400V dual inverter with boost function. Tailored specifically for hybrid vehicle models, this advanced solution highlights BorgWarner’s commitment to innovation and sustainability within the automotive sector.

Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager of BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems, expressed the importance of supplying advanced technology to support OEM hybrid vehicle production.

The boost module, integrated into the 400V dual inverter, leverages BorgWarner’s proprietary Viper platform to house two inverters and a high-power boost module within a compact package. This integration not only ensures precise control of dual motors but also enhances power density and performance, all while facilitating easy installation for automakers.

With the dual inverter with boost set to be manufactured and assembled at BorgWarner’s Suzhou, China plant, production is slated to start in September 2024. This strategic move reinforces BorgWarner’s dedication to localized production, ensuring efficient supply chain management and timely delivery of automotive solutions to meet growing market demands.

“Our skilled engineering team, paired with our reputable quality standards and manufacturing processes, makes us a leader in this space and a great partner in the shift toward electrification,” added Dr. Demmerle, pointing out BorgWarner’s ability to drive innovation and sustainability in the automotive industry.
