BorgWarner is providing its two-speed Torque-OnDemand transfer cases for Foton Motor’s recently launched Sauvana SUV.
BorgWarner’s Torque-On-Demand technology automatically redistributes torque from the rear wheels to the front wheels without driver intervention for traction, stability and enhanced dynamics.
“Drivers will appreciate the control of BorgWarner’s Torque-On-Demand technology,” said BorgWarner TorqTransfer Systems president and general manager, Stefan Demmerle.
“Without flipping a switch or turning a dial, the system automatically delivers the traction needed for nearly any road or weather condition.
“BorgWarner is pleased to provide localised manufacturing for Foton Motors, supplying this advanced technology from our facility in Beijing.”
BorgWarner’s Torque-On-Demand technology works directly with the vehicle’s control systems.
Monitoring signals such as steering wheel angle, accelerator pedal position and wheel speed, the vehicle’s control systems command the transfer case to deliver the required amount of torque to the front and rear axles.
To enhance performance and fuel efficiency, the aluminium housing reduces total vehicle weight.
The all-wheel drive transfer case is also equipped with BorgWarner’s HY-VO transfer case chain.
