Integrated drive module
Borg Warner’s integrated drive module (iDM) was selected by the Korean vehicle manufacturer for its power electric system, which will be used in the upcoming A segment electric vehicle production, planned to start in mid of 2023.
With its state-of-the-art electric motor, gearbox, and integrated power electronics, BorgWarner’s new iDM supports global automakers in their mission to produce cleaner and more efficient vehicles.
“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,” said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems. “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 organizations.”
Designed, developed, and manufactured by the company as a high-performance system, Borg Warner’s solution operates at 400V and has an exceptional peak power of 135 kW. The advanced transmission technology offers smooth and quiet operation, and the electric motor uses High Voltage Hairpin technology delivering exceptional performance.
Overall drive system weight and space are reduced by integrating the gearbox, a 400V silicon inverter, and the motor with a compact, 146mm stator outer diameter. The iDM146 also offers a scalable and modular inverter design, making it easily customizable to customer requirements.
Auburn Hills, Michigan serves as the corporate headquarters for the American automotive supplier Borg Warner Inc. It is among the top 25 global suppliers to the automobile industry.
For all forms of propulsion, including internal combustion engines, hybrid vehicles, and electric vehicles, the company is actively researching and working on clean and efficient future technologies.
