Through its high-efficiency geartrain and compact, low-weight design, the BorgWarner eGearDrive transmission contributes to extended battery-powered driving range, which in turn reduces the required amount of battery capacity needed. According to the company, this single-speed gearbox also achieves higher torque capacity with 98% efficiency, while providing smooth, quiet operation. First commercialized on the Tesla Roadster, the eGearDrive has been developed for the emerging vehicle electrification market and will also drive the all-electric CODA sedan, which is scheduled for introduction in California in 2010. Production-ready designs of the company’s eGearDrive transmission will enable several other manufacturers to launch a variety of electric vehicles beginning in 2010 and 2011. Designed for fast-to-market implementation, annual volumes are expected to increase rapidly over the next few years.
