The HVH 320 electric motor from BorgWarner.
BorgWarner's latest HVH 320 electric motor is designed to power numerous hybrid and electronic commercial vehicles from various manufacturers. A European OEM will also use the motor.
Production of the HVH 320, which supports an 800 V architecture and is available in four versions, is expected to begin in 2024. Available in four versions, the motor achieves a peak efficiency of almost 97% and over 400 kW of power. The electric motor achieves up to 1270 Nm of torque. Moreover, the motor technology supports battery recuperation when braking or driving downhill.
»With the addition of the HVH 320 to our electric motor family, we are strengthening our product portfolio. This electric motor is an excellent example of BorgWarner's commitment to delivering state-of-the-art, clean drive technologies that meet the needs of the market,« said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems. »Thanks to 800 V architecture, charging time can be significantly reduced and higher power density can be achieved.«
The HVH 320 is the latest addition to BorgWarner's HVH motor series, which is offered for both light passenger cars and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. The versatile motors feature a patented stator winding, are easy to integrate and are available with either a complete housing or as a rotor/stator assembly. They can also be used in different positions within the drive architecture. BorgWarner also has inverters in its portfolio that also support the 800 V architecture.
