BorgWarner forms Cascadia Motion to focus on electric and hybrid propulsion solutions for niche and emerging applications

Recognizing that the demand for electric and hybrid propulsion systems is growing rapidly and goes beyond mainstream passenger and commercial vehicles, BorgWarner has acquired Rinehart Motion Systems LLC and AM Racing Inc to form Cascadia Motion LLC. Cascadia Motion will retain an entrepreneurial culture and explore the wide variety of electric and hybrid propulsion solutions for niche and emerging applications.

Rinehart Motion Systems and AM Racing are two established companies in the specialty electric and hybrid propulsion sector. Bringing them together as Cascadia Motion will allow us to offer design, development and production of full electric and hybrid propulsion systems for niche and low-volume manufacturing applications.

—Hakan Yilmaz, Chief Technology Officer at BorgWarner

Rinehart Motion Systems brings expertise in propulsion inverters and controls for electric and hybrid electric vehicles in professional motorsports, motorcycles, specialty road cars, bus, and heavy duty sectors. AM Racing designs and manufactures single- and dual-core electric motors and gearsets used in all these same market segments.

Cascadia Motion LLC will expand the company’s ability to support a wide variety of customers with small scale projects, specialty products, and low volume manufacturing needs. In addition, BorgWarner’s global production facilities can be utilized as Cascadia Motion customers grow to require high-volume production.
