BorgWarner says it has been selected to supply turbochargers and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valves for various cars and light commercial vehicles manufactured by First Automotive Works (FAW) in China, beginning in 2010.
BorgWarner says its turbocharging and EGR technologies will help FAW meet China 4 emissions standards, which are equivalent to Euro 4 emissions standards.
“In China, increasingly strict emissions legislation is driving the trend toward turbocharged gasoline engines with smaller displacement. Vehicles are more fuel efficient, more eco-friendly and more powerful,” said Roger Wood, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Turbo & Emissions Systems.
“When it came to developing its new engines, FAW chose to rely on BorgWarner’s turbocharging and EGR expertise. Our new cooperation with FAW marks a continuation of BorgWarner’s expansion in Asia.”
BorgWarner’s turbocharging technology will be employed for FAW’s newly developed 1.3-litre and 2.0-litre gasoline engines for the compact and midsize car segment.
BorgWarner is also supplying the EGR valve for the 3.0-liter diesel power unit for FAW’s light commercial vehicles, up to three tons.
All three engines will comply with Euro 4 and China 4 emissions standards.
