Hyundai To equip Its Upcoming EV With BorgWarner’s iDM

Hyundai Motor Group has selected BorgWarner’s integrated drive module (iDM) for its upcoming electric vehicle. The new A-segment electric vehicle is expected to enter production by mid of 2023.

BorgWarner’s state of the art iDM system, with its electric motor, gearbox and integrated power electronics, helps vehicle manufacturers in their mission to reduce net carbon emission. The high-performance iDM146 system operates at 400V using the High Voltage Hairpin technology and produces a peak power of 135 kW paired to an advanced transmission technology to offer smooth and quiet operation. The iDM146 features compact construction, helping reduce the overall weight of the system.

Talking about the iDM146, Dr Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems, said, “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. 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 organisations.” (MT)
