BorgWarner has developed a High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) electric motor, the HVH 320 for commercial vehicles. The HVH 320, which is equipped with 800-volt capabilities is available in four variants and expected to kick off in 2024.

It will power a variety of hybrid and electric applications including a large European OEM. Its multi-faceted platform will support the goal of a common electric drivetrain and deliver approximately 97 percent peak efficiency and over 400kW of power.   

Dr Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems said, “Adding the HVH 320 to our electric motor family bolsters our offerings and is an excellent example of BorgWarner’s commitment to delivering state-of-the-art clean propulsion technologies that match market needs. 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 motor offers clean and quiet operation, while reaching a torque output of up to 1270 Nm. Also, the technology supports the vehicle’s shifting sequence and charges the battery by generating power while braking or driving downhill. Additionally, the motors can be used in a variety of architectural positions throughout a vehicle. BorgWarner also offers inverters that can achieve the same, next-generation 800-volt level.
