BorgWarner’s eGearDrive launches in Geely’s first electric vehicle

BorgWarner’s eGearDrive transmission (earlier post) will propel the Geely EC7-EV sedan. The Chinese automaker’s first mass-produced electric vehicle is powered by a 96 kW electric motor and features a top speed of 140 km/h (87 mph) and a range of 253 km (157 miles).

Specifically designed for the emerging high-volume electric vehicle market, BorgWarner’s eGearDrive transmission features an efficient gear train for extended range and quiet performance, and is available in a wide range of ratios for a variety of motor sizes.

Demand for BorgWarner’s innovative eGearDrive transmission is growing significantly in the Chinese market where we expect to launch several programs with major automakers in the next few months.

—Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems


BorgWarner’s eGearDrive transmission achieves high torque capacity in a compact package while providing smooth, quiet operation. Through its high-efficiency gear train and compact, low-weight design, the eGearDrive transmission contributes to extended battery-powered driving range, which in turn reduces the battery capacity required. An electronically actuated park lock system is also available. Approximately 99 of the materials used in the eGearDrive transmission are recyclable.



Will those improved drive units be produced in Asia (China) or in Mexico and/or in Eastern Europe?
