Until the vehicle starts to slide or needs to accelerate quickly, a vehicle with part-time AWD typically drives either in front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. When necessary, AWD automatically switches to sending power and torque to the rear wheels. When using a full-time AWD system, the car always travels on all four wheels.
For hybrid and all-electric vehicles, eAWD is a novel rear axle drive concept with optional torque vectoring to enhance stability and driving dynamics.
The Global eAWD Drive Module market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
The upcoming Ford Mustang Mach-E will utilise BorgWarner’s Integrated Drive Module (iDM), according to the company.
The iDM includes a motor and power electronics from another (undisclosed) supplier integrated with a BorgWarner thermal-management system (liquid cooling), lubrication solution, and single-speed gearbox (with a park module).
The iDM for Ford Mustang Mach-E is a co-axial in order to be more compact than BorgWarner eGearDrive units.
BorgWarner was able to deliver this unique drive module that complied with Ford’s exacting requirements by drawing on its expertise with scalable and modular approaches to iDMs.
The iDM’s gearing, which differs from other BorgWarner eGearDrive units in that it uses a concentric design with outputs on the same axis as the electric motor rather than parallel axis gearing, results in a smaller package. A smooth, efficient ride is made possible by the company’s high-performing gearbox, which can handle axle torque up to 4,278 Nm and input speeds of 13,800 rpm.
