‘Delivering Critically Important Technology Solutions’
BorgWarner continues to step up its presence in electric-drive vehicles, disclosing today that it’s supplying an efficient passenger cabin heater for a new electric vehicle from “a globally known EV automaker.”
BorgWarner offers “more efficient use of energy while providing rapid cabin heating,” the company says.
“Independent of waste heat, BorgWarner’s high-voltage cabin heater warms the air stream coming from the blower, delivering a comfortable and odor-free cabin environment, while saving battery power due to efficient operation.”
The unit includes ceramic PTC/positive temperature coefficient components as core elements, and “self-regulates to ensure high power heating is available in cold temperatures, when it is needed most.”
The cabin heater offers up to 7 kilowatts of power with dual-zone functionality to further curb energy use.
Drivetrain Components Too
“We take pride in delivering critically important technology solutions to support our customers’ goals,” BorgWarner emissions and thermal systems president and GM Joe Fadool said in a release. “We are excited to offer a solution that addresses these challenges while providing driver comfort.”
In other recent e-drive vehicle news, BorgWarner said it’s supplying its HVH410 electric motors for the new Citywide parallel hybrid electric bus by Sweden’s Scania (F&F, September 7).
