When looking at the passenger car segment, the path to maximum electrification seems clear. For the heavy-duty commercial vehicle sector it is less clear though, as the disadvantages of a battery electric powertrain are currently still overwhelming – especially regarding charging infrastructure, costs, range and payload. For this reason, commercial vehicle manufacturers are focusing on the real-world control of criteria pollutants and maximum efficiency increase of the classic internal combustion engine.

To support these efforts, in terms of overall efficiency and hybridization, BorgWarner is aiming to optimise its commercial vehicle turbocharger technologies. The company’s latest generation High Efficiency Turbo (HET) and Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) turbocharger product lines provide a solid performance base and are enhanced by the eBooster® electrically driven compressor or the electrically supported eTurbo™.
