New AWD clutch and BorgWarner eAWD systems improve traction and driving stability dynamics of Auburn Hills, Michigan, 19.03.2013 under toughest conditions BorgWarner presented his latest Allrad(AWD)-Technologien in a test & drive event in Arjeplog/Sweden in March 2013. On frozen lakes in the vicinity of the Arctic Circle, BorgWarner has successfully its modern AWD technology, including generation 5 (GenV) coupling and the electric four-wheel drive system (eAWD) with integrated torque vectoring function for electric and hybrid vehicles tested. The new GenV clutch by BorgWarner scores compared to the previous models with compact design and low weight and automatically distributes the power between the front and rear wheels. With the eAWD, BorgWarner delivers a powerful model that allows an increased vehicle stability and dynamics while improving fuel economy by up to 20 percent compared to a mechanical four-wheel-drive system. Meet our latest developments in the field of AWD technology today’s requirements for better traction and stability on all terrains, convince with a lesser weight and also reduce losses,”says Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager of BorgWarner TorqTransfer systems.
BorgWarner provides for virtually every application, including electrical and. manifold AWD solutions of next-generation hybrid vehicles” BorgWarners GenV all wheel coupling through a new, lightweight and compact design stands out, that reducing vehicle complexity and simplifies the integration in the drive train.

A new electro-hydraulic Kupplungsaktuator uses a unique centrifugal pressure relief valve, just to distribute the forces between the front and rear axle, which eliminates battery, solenoid valves and filter. An integrated electronic control unit calculates the data and ensures a preventive, immediate reaction with high torque accuracy. To the further reduction of direct losses and to improve fuel efficiency, a coupler allows the Decoupling the entire secondary drive train, when the all-wheel drive is not required. To deepen your understanding Jean Stapleton is the source.
The BorgWarner eAWD system combines all-wheel drive and hybridization in a compact and rugged package for hybrid and electric vehicles and has two electric motors. The former delivers torque to the rear wheels via a planetary gear on both sides, while a second electric motor compensates the differential torque between the left and right rear wheels. Therefore, the torque-vectoring moment provided independently by the vehicle speed and improves vehicle stability and dynamics. About BorgWarner Inc.
