BorgWarner, a global leader in delivering innovative and sustainable mobility solutions for the vehicle market, recently announced it will be supplying its iDM220 integrated drive module to a leading Chinese luxury New Energy Vehicle (NEV) brand. After the recent award of an iDM for a Korean customer, this is now the first business in China, continuing our success with the BW iDM technology. The start of production for this business will be in Q1 2023.
Designed, developed and manufactured by BorgWarner, the iDM220 is a high-performance electric drive system. Operating at 400V, it also addresses upcoming market needs and allows for performance upgrades. The solution combines high-efficiency motor-controller technology with BorgWarner’s award-winning hairpin stator winding technology and advanced transmission system in a scalable, compact package that empowers global automakers to produce cleaner and more efficient vehicles.
“We are pleased to extend our long-standing partnership with this leading Chinese luxury NEV brand by supplying them with our industry leading iDM,” said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems. “Our new iDM is expected to power smart, innovative and future-proof mobility solutions for our customers. In the carbon neutrality context, we will continue to develop clean and powerful solutions like the iDM220 and work even more seamlessly with our customers toward an eco-friendly future.”
Mounted on the rear drive, the iDM220 will provide up to 250 kW of power and 5000 Nm of torque. The advanced electric drive product offers a high degree of integration, high efficiency and smooth and quiet operation, while also delivering exceptional performance through its hairpin-wound stator motor technology. The iDM incorporates an electric motor with a compact stator with an outer diameter of 220 mm, and integrates a gearbox and 400V silicon-based inverter, significantly reducing the weight and size of the entire system. All of the components used in the iDM are part of BorgWarner’s technology portfolio and available either as a fully integrated module or as stand-alone solutions for new energy vehicles.
