BorgWarner’s integrated drive module (iDM) was selected by the Hyundai Motor Group for its power electric system, which will be used in the upcoming A-segment EVs. Production is planned to start in the middle of 2023. 

Designed, developed and manufactured as a high-performance system, BorgWarner’s iDM146 operates at 400V and claimed to have a peak power of 135 kW. The 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 customisable. 

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.”
