Great Wall Motor adopts BorgWarner's VTG turbocharger, TOD transfer cases

ABR Staff Writer Published 06 June 2011

Great Wall Motor, a China-based vehicle manufacturer, has adopted BorgWarner's variable turbine geometry (VTG) turbochargers and Torque-On-Demand (TOD) transfer cases in its new 2.0-litre Hover/Haval H5 sports-utility vehicle (SUV).

The engine also utilizes BorgWarner's self-regulating glow plugs and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valves.

The turbocharged diesel engine in the Hover/Haval H5 will also be available in the light commercial vehicle and medium car segment soon.

BorgWarner chairman and CEO Timothy Manganello said the company's advanced turbocharging and emissions technologies enable Great Wall Motor's new diesel engine to meet stringent emissions standards with excellent fuel economy, while our advanced all-wheel drive technology improves traction and enhances stability for a safer, more comfortable overall driving experience.

"With our strong local presence in China, we can support domestic OEMs like Great Wall Motor as they develop globally competitive powertrains, offering options that were previously only available on imported vehicles," Manganello said.

The engine is Great Wall Motor's first self-designed diesel engine and complies with Euro 4 emissions standards and achieves an average fuel consumption of 34mpg (6.8 litres/100 km).

The EGR valve with a brushless DC motor actuator enables the engine to meet stricter emissions standards by allowing increased EGR rates.

The TOD transfer case delivers all-wheel drive traction, using the company's electronic control unit (ECU) and software to automatically switch from two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive and back without driver intervention.
