BorgWarner furthers relationship with Hyundai-Kia

BorgWarner has released further details of its relationship with Hyundai Kia, as it details its latest variable turbine geometry (VTG) turbocharging technology as used on multiple Hyundai Motor Company vehicles worldwide.

BorgWarner’s latest VTG turbocharger features an electric actuator, which allows precise adjustment to the relevant engine operating points for optimum power output. The actuator controls the pressure upstream of the turbine by adjusting the guide vanes. By changing the inflow angle and speed at the turbine wheel inlet, BorgWarner’s patented S-shaped guide vanes regulate output, improving thermodynamics and engine response at very low rpm.

“BorgWarner values its long-standing partnership with the Hyundai Motor Company and we are very proud to extend our cooperation by providing our latest VTG turbochargers, which improve fuel economy and enhance performance while reducing emissions, for a majority of their diesel engines,” said Frédéric Lissalde, president and general manager, BorgWarner Turbo Systems. “This collaboration emphasizes BorgWarner’s role as a leading supplier of state-of-the-art VTG turbocharging technologies and further strengthens our market position in Asia.”
