BorgWarner launches 800-volt electric motor for commercial vehicles

BorgWarner’s latest High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) electric motor, the HVH 320, is designed to power a variety of commercial EVs. Production of the HVH 320, which is equipped with 800-volt capabilities and is available in four variants, is expected to kick off in 2024. Its multifaceted platform will deliver over 400 kW of power at 97% peak efficiency, and will support BorgWarner’s OEM customers’ demand for a common electric drivetrain.

BorgWarner President Stefan Demmerle said, “Using our 800-volt rated machine, customers can significantly reduce charging time and achieve a higher power density, enabling an even brighter future for electric trucks.”

The company designed four variants of its modular HVH 320 motor platform to meet customer requirements. The motor produces up to 1,270 Nm of torque and supports a vehicle’s shifting sequence and regenerative braking.

The HVH 320 motor is the newest addition to BorgWarner’s portfolio of HVH series motors, which are offered for both light-duty passenger cars and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. These motors feature patented stator winding technology, and are available as fully-housed motors or as rotor/stator assemblies. The motors can be used in a variety of architectural positions throughout a vehicle.

BorgWarner also offers inverters that can achieve the same 800-volt level.
