BorgWarner presents state-of-the-art solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles that help automakers meet increasingly stringent emission standards at this year’s Auto Expo in New Delhi, India.
  • road solution portfolio for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles to be shown at one of the largest motors shows in Asia
  • Experts present high-performance technologies for all propulsion systems
  • Innovative BorgWarner solutions enable automakers to meet Bharat Stage (BS) VI emission standards

Auburn Hills, Michigan, February 5, 2018 – As a global leader in clean and efficient technology solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles, BorgWarner presents its broad product portfolio at the 14th Auto Expo in New Delhi from February 8 to 11, 2018. At booth 73 in hall 11, the company will show solutions that help automakers master the challenges posed by ever stricter emission standards. Accordingly, for combustion engines, BorgWarner will focus on technologies that help optimize engine efficiency and performance while reducing emissions, and will also present a broad range of solutions for hybrid and pure electric vehicles.

“At BorgWarner, we constantly work on providing solutions that help all vehicles meet stringent emission standards like BS VI while still improving performance and fuel efficiency,” said Scott Gallett, Vice President, Marketing, Public Relations and Government Affairs, BorgWarner. “The Auto Expo 2018 is an ideal platform for showcasing our extensive range of products for clean and efficient vehicles of the future no matter which propulsion system is used.”

Following current trends, BorgWarner’s exhibits will include highly efficient solutions for combustion engines like the company’s CTA phasers with mid-position lock technology. This advanced variable cam timing technology enables optimized valve timing control over a broad range of engine speeds. In addition, the company will showcase its mild hybridization expertise with the eBooster® electrically driven compressor and 48V eFan. For hybrids and pure electric vehicles, the company will show its latest innovations, including silent chains for P3-type hybrids, low pressure exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) modules, a high-voltage air heater operating independently of engine waste heat and the electric Drive Module (eDM). This all-in-one electric propulsion solution combines BorgWarner’s tried-and-tested eGearDrive® transmission and the high voltage hairpin (HVH) electric motor in a single module for simple installation.

BorgWarner has also developed a wide range of solutions to support commercial vehicle manufacturers in meeting current and future emissions regulations. For instance, the company’s series of modular compact floating core EGR coolers for a wide range of commercial vehicle applications offer high robustness against thermal fatigue and enhanced coolant distribution for durable performance, even at a minimum coolant flow, and they reduce NOx emissions too. Another technology shown at the Auto Expo India is the latest generation of the electronically actuated Visctronic® fan drive for commercial vehicles. Combining the robust, modular design of its predecessor with an improved internal control system and a new proprietary slip heat enhancement feature, this high-performance fan drive is able to operate under high loads and in tough environments.

Niobium micro alloyed ferritic stainless steel for automotive exhaust system

By Prashant Poojary, Ferro Tech India Pvt Ltd. Emission regulations for vehicles have become increasingly stringent with the proposed nation-wide adherence to Bharat Stage-VI (BS-VI) emission norms by 2020. This decision will have cost implications for oil refineries as well as auto manufacturers to upgrade technology. Currently BS-IV fuel is being supplied to 13 cities,…

[Official] Bharat Stage VI coming in 2020

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MORTH) has issued an official notification for the implementation of Bharat Stage VI emission norms. According to this notification, BS VI will be applicable from April 1, 2020.

This announcement comes after the government invited suggestions about the new emission norms in February this year. Automotive companies had earlier asked the government to delay the timeline in order to give enough time to the industry to cope with this major change. The Society of Indian Automotive Manufacturers (SIAM) had even claimed that the automotive industry would need an investment of Rs. 1.5 lakh crore in order to meet all requirements within the stated deadline. However, the union government has not postponed the implementation date.

One of the biggest points of the official notification is the inclusion of particulate matter standards for two-wheelers and three-wheelers. This is the first time that PM standardization has been implemented for two-wheelers. Since the number of two-wheelers in big cities is huge, even small particulate emissions from them can accumulate into a big particulate load.

The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), a New Delhi-based green body, has claimed that with the implementation of BS-VI, there will be a reduction of 89% in the particulate matter emissions from two-wheelers, while NOx emissions will be cut by 76%. In case of cars, a reduction of 82% in PM emissions and 68% in NOx is expected to be seen.

To ensure strict compliance of the updated norms, the government has already decided to randomly pick cars from dealerships, in order to avoid any chances of manipulation on the manufacturers’ part. An arrangement to test real-time emissions is also being made. For this, portable emissions monitoring systems (PEMS) are being implemented. This will help in monitoring whether or not the on-road vehicles produce emissions within their certified limits.
