BorgWarner, a global leader in
clean and efficient technology solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric
vehicles, produces silent chains for Suzuki’s Solio hybrid vehicle. When
driving under electric power, two chains transfer power from the electric motor
to the transmission to propel the vehicle. During braking or deceleration, the
chains transmit power back to the motor to recharge the battery.
“As our global customers add
hybrid electric motors to their propulsion systems, they are discovering the
benefits of BorgWarner’s efficient, low noise chains for transmitting torque
and solving packaging challenges,” said Joel Wiegert, President and General
Manager, BorgWarner Morse Systems. “We are excited by this new growth
opportunity,” he added.
Designed for lighter weight,
smaller space and lower cost than gear drives, BorgWarner’s technology provides
durable performance, even under high speeds typical in hybrid applications.
BorgWarner also supplies the silent timing chain for the 1.2-liter gasoline
engine. In both applications, lower friction improves durability and increases
