BorgWarner is paving the way for a clean, energy-efficient world. The propulsion systems specialist has been using this ambitious promise for several months in its outward communication worldwide. The company has extended its product portfolio for vehicles with combustion engine to include solutions for hybrid and electric drives – and is now presenting itself as a leading full-service provider for the mobility solutions of tomorrow. Learn more about this in an interview with Frédéric Lissalde, President and General Manager at BorgWarner Turbo Systems, from page 8 in the new TurboNews.
The range of engine projects presented in this edition stretches from exceptionally small to extremely large. Starting with Honda‘s new 61 cubic inch (1.0 liter) engine and continuing through the new 122 cubic inch (2.0 liter) turbodiesel from Jaguar Land Rover and the Volkswagen Group‘s 183 cubic inch (3.0 liter) TFSI unit, all the way up to the 402 cubic inch (6.6 liter) turbodiesel from General Motors – a very wide range of drives benefits from BorgWarner‘s turobocharging expertise.
BorgWarner also achieves its goal of further improving fuel consumption, emissions and performance by constantly optimizing its own products. The best example of this is the new ball bearing technology, which we present on page 16. The innovative bearing increases efficiency by 4 percent and reduces emissions by 2 percent – with excellent NVH characteristics.
We hope you have fun reading this latest edition of TurboNews.
