Description of Accomplishment:
The eTurbo enables new performance levels while still meeting strict emissions requirements thanks to non-traditional matching strategies and electrification. Porsche nominated BorgWarner as their supplier for all 911 platforms, from the 300kW base model to the 470kW flagship “Turbo S” model. The eTurbo enables exceptional low-end torque from a smaller displacement engine and fast catalytic converter light-off using the eTurbo as a secondary air pump during cold start. Instead of waste gating excess exhaust energy, the eTurbo’s electric motor harvests up to 20kW per eTurbo and returns energy to the vehicle’s hybrid network, thereby increasing powertrain efficiency.
Benefit to BorgWarner:
The global eTurbo team is delivering our new and innovative eB60 eTurbo to Porsche to expand our turbocharger offerings in the electrification market. (Profitable sales growth, innovation, and product leadership).
