BorgWarner announced plans to form a joint venture with Shaanxi Fast Auto Drive Group, a leading supplier of commercial vehicle parts in China known for transmission and drivetrain systems.

Stefan Demmerle, president and general manager at BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems, highlighted the venture’s focus on developing high-voltage inverter applications for vehicles like heavy-duty trucks and off-road vehicles. “This joint venture will support our business growth for power electronics in the electrified commercial vehicle market,” Demmerle said. “Our strong engineering footprint in China enables us to quickly accelerate product development to commercialize highly efficient inverter technology.”

Xuyao Ma, chairman of FAST Group, emphasized the complementary strengths of both companies. “With solid technology, powerful R&D capabilities and integrated supply chain, BorgWarner is a well-known global product leader in inverters for new energy vehicles.
