BorgWarner’s integrated drive module will power Hyundai Motor Group‘s A-segment electric vehicles, whose production is planned to start in 2023. Designed, developed and manufactured by BorgWarner as a high-performance system, the iDM146 operates at 400V and has a peak power of 135 kilowatts.
The advanced transmission technology offers smooth and quiet operation, and the electric motor uses High Voltage Hairpin technology delivering exceptional performance. Overall drive system weight and space are reduced by integrating the gearbox, a 400V silicon inverter and the motor with a compact, 146 mm stator outer diameter. The iDM146 also offers a scalable and modular inverter design, making it easily customizable to customer requirements.
Nearly two decades of partnership with the Hyundai Motor Group
«We have enjoyed nearly two decades of partnership with the Hyundai Motor Group and couldn’t be more excited about this next step – working on our first electrification project together», said Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems. «I am especially enthusiastic about the fact that this is the first iDM product combining the portfolios of BorgWarner and legacy Delphi Technologies after the acquisition, reaping the benefits of the two organizations».
