BorgWarner supplies turbocharging technology for Volkswagen in China

BorgWarner will supply its advanced turbocharging technology for Volkswagen’s latest four-cylinder gasoline engine for the Chinese market. Engineered to improve performance and fuel economy, BorgWarner’s turbocharger helps the automaker’s 1.4-liter gasoline engines deliver superior responsiveness over the entire engine speed range. Available with outputs of 96~101kW, the BorgWarner-boosted engine is intended for high-volume production and is currently available for numerous Volkswagen vehicle models in China.

“We are proud to help the Volkswagen Group in China improve the performance and fuel economy of its downsized gasoline engines with our leading turbocharging technology,” says Frédéric Lissalde, president and general manager of BorgWarner Turbo Systems. “The excellent collaboration of our engineering teams in Europe and China once again demonstrated BorgWarner’s expertise in offering quick-to-market solutions for automakers worldwide.”

BorgWarner supplies Volkswagen’s 1.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with its B01 turbocharger with integrated wastegate for controlled boost pressure. A mixed-flow turbine is successfully applied to realize low inertia and fast response at low engine speeds, which also supports Volkswagen’s downsizing and high-performance strategy. Its compact design and immediate response even at low engine speeds boost engine performance while simultaneously improving fuel economy.

To support the Chinese automotive market with localized manufacturing, BorgWarner’s turbochargers for this high-volume engine are produced at its campus in Ningbo, China. Since 2006, BorgWarner has been developing and assembling advanced turbocharging technologies at its Ningbo plant. To meet increasing demand for fuel-efficient powertrain technologies in the Chinese market, BorgWarner expanded the campus and opened another production plant as well as its state-of-the-art Ningbo Engineering Center in 2012.
