BorgWarner Supplies New Technologies to Great Wall
China-based Great Wall Motor Company will equip these advanced technologies in the new 2.0-liter Hover/Haval H5 SUV that improves performance and fuel economy. The engine also uses BorgWarnerâ€™s self-regulating glow plugs and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valves.
Timothy Manganello, chairman and CEO of BorgWarner, said: â€œBorgWarnerâ€™s advanced turbocharging and emissions technologies enable Great Wall Motorâ€™s new diesel engine to meet stringent emissions standards with excellent fuel economy, while our advanced all-wheel drive technology improves traction and enhances stability for a safer, more comfortable overall driving experience.â€
The self-regulating glow plugs provide reliable and environmentally friendly diesel engine, which starts even in very low temperatures, said BorgWarner.
The turbocharged diesel engine will also be available in Great Wallâ€™s light commercial vehicle and medium car segment.
The VTG turbocharging increases fuel efficiency and power output while reducing emissions, helping the engine to fulfill Euro 4 emissions standards and achieve an average fuel consumption of 34 mpg (6.8 liters/100 km).
In addition, Great Wall Motor has also used BorgWarner's EGR valve fitted with a brushless DC motor actuator that delivers precise, responsive flow control combined with high flow capability and excellent sealing, enabling the engine to meet stricter emissions standards that allows increased EGR rates.
The TOD transfer case provides on-demand all-wheel drive traction combining the all-terrain capability of an SUV with the on-road handling of a passenger car.
The ECU and software, TOD transfer cases automatically interchange from two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive and viceversa without driver intervention for improved traction, enhanced stability and comfort.
Mr Manganello said: â€œWith our strong local presence in China, we can support domestic OEMs like Great Wall Motor as they develop globally competitive powertrains, offering options that were previously only available on imported vehicles.â€
Michigan-based BorgWarner is a provider of engineered components and systems for vehicle powertrain applications worldwide. The company operates manufacturing and technical facilities in 59 locations in 19 countries.
