fully integrated P3 hybrid drive module will soon be powering a variety of
front-wheel and AWD SUVs for a major European performance based OEM. The
unique, power-packed P3 solution enables significant fuel economy gains, CO2
reduction and was entirely custom-designed in house by BorgWarner, featuring a
motor, power electronics, gears and water cooling, all integrated within one
that integrated electrification systems like our P3 module seamlessly and
efficiently control everything from the incoming power of the battery to output
torque that’s driving the car forward is no easy feat,” said Dr. Stefan
Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Power Drive Systems.
“BorgWarner’s latest drive module is a premier example of our team’s
comprehensive understanding of the processes, system engineering, software and
integration expertise needed for high-performing hybrid applications.”
the key features of BorgWarner’s latest drive module is the permanent magnet
motor and complementary inverter that BorgWarner built from the ground up for
this application. The electric motor features BorgWarner’s patented and proven
S-wind wire forming process for electric motors and alternators, and the system
is capable of peak power up to 25 kW and enables a substantial reduction in CO2
emissions. The P3 module also encompasses disconnect and energy regeneration
