BorgWarner announced a partnership with South Korean auto giant Hyundai Motor Company on Wednesday, August 10.

In a press release on the BorgWarner website, Hyundai will use the Integrated Drive Module (iDM) or the iDM146 integrated drive module made by BorgWarner to power its electric vehicles.

BorgWarner said the iDM146 will be used as the newest driver for the Hyundai A-Segment EV (small size) which is targeted for production in the third quarter of 2024.

According to a note from Electrek, this is the second time Hyundai has worked with BorgWarner on its new EV engine.

“Our partnership with Hyundai Motor Company spans two decades, and we are pleased to continue our relationship by supplying our latest technology for the company’s newest electrification project,” said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems.

According to Demmerle, the BorgWarner iDM proved a great fit for customers’ electric propulsion systems during its first EV collaboration.

“We look forward to contributing industry-leading electrification solutions to assist the company in meeting its sustainability goals in the future,” he said.

Hyundai has chosen the BorgWarner iDM146, an efficient and high-power integrated drive module. iDM operates at 400V with a peak power of 135 kW.

The BorgWarner iDM146 powers the electronics, electric motors and vehicle mechanics making it the perfect choice for automakers looking to increase EV production.

In addition, having a gearbox, motor and silicon inverter in one unit helps reduce overall weight and space used.

The iDM146 consists of an interior permanent magnet (IPM) electric motor with a stator outer diameter of 146mm and is equipped with High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) technology for high power density and efficiency.
