BorgWarner on Jan. 14 announced it had signed a contract to establish a joint venture with China Automobile Development United Investment Co. Ltd., a company owned by 12 Chinese automakers comprising FAW, SAIC, Dongfeng, Chery, ChangAn, Brilliance, Guangzhu, Changfeng, JAC, Geely, Polarsun, and Great Wall Motor. Known as BorgWarner United Transmission Systems Co. Ltd., the joint venture will be located in Dalian, China, and will produce various dual-clutch transmission modules beginning in 2011. BorgWarner holds a 66% majority ownership in the joint venture. Since Chinese OEMs have a solid manual transmission infrastructure, BorgWarner's DualTronic technology, based on a manual transmission architecture, is especially attractive in China, according to BorgWarner. The joint venture will allow Chinese OEMs to make the technological leap to world-leading dual-clutch transmissions quickly and cost-effectively, the company says.
