Chinese EV maker to use BorgWarner’s iDM e-axle in upcoming vehicle

Michigan-based parts supplier BorgWarner has announced a partnership with an unnamed Chinese EV maker to supply its fully-integrated e-axle, the iDM, for an upcoming EV. This partnership is BorgWarner’s first iDM project in China. The automaker expects the EV to go into mass production in 2021.

BorgWarner’s e-axle system integrates the power electronics, transmission, and drive motor. The motor features a patented high-voltage hairpin stator that BorgWarner says delivers superior noise, vibration and harshness characteristics.

The iDM is available in three different power levels (iDM 90, iDM 120, iDM 160), and can be integrated at either the front or rear axle, depending on the vehicle architecture and application.

The e-axle features a scalable, modular architecture and a wide range of gear ratios and motor sizes. Operating at 220 to 480 volts DC, the iDM provides up to 150 kW of power and up to 3,000 Nm of torque, which can be further extended to 160 kW and 3,800 Nm for different vehicle platforms.

Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President of BorgWarner, said, “We are excited to expand our working relationship with one of our long-term customers to provide a full system solution for their electric vehicle.”
