BorgWarner to deliver High Voltage Coolant Heaters to a global OEM

BorgWarner has signed an agreement with an undisclosed major global OEM to supply its 400V High Voltage Coolant Heaters (HVCH) for the automaker’s European light vehicle program. The anticipated start of production for the HVCH technology is in 2026.

This business win marks the second HVCH contract secured with the global automaker over the course of two months, with the wins spanning different regions. As a result, BorgWarner is bolstering its position as an agile partner with worldwide solutions to support the OEM with its new and upcoming battery electric vehicle (BEV) platforms.

The 400V HVCH features a modular design with high thermal power density crafted specifically for the heating of a pure BEV’s battery and cabin, while offering a lightweight, compact solution to fit the reduced size and weight requirements requested by the OEM.

The technology offers enhanced heat transfer to enable fast charging and includes a low switching frequency to optimise cost. Similarly, it satisfies numerous packaging and safety requirements to align with customer needs, including preventing thermal events with a redundant switch that controls temperature and can shut off automatically should it detect an error, the company stated.
