BorgWarner’s battery packs include current overcharge protection, cell-level passive propagation resistance, and electrical disconnection at the individual cell wire bonds that satisfy the industry’s strict electric vehicle battery safety standards, as BorgWarner stresses. Additionally, the 98 kWh packs offer active cooling and deliver industry-leading energy density of 274 Wh/liter and 177 Wh/kilogram (specs suggesting that the involved battery pack model is the same NMC 3 generation offered for the eCitaro).

“We are eager to work together with our electric powertrain customer as we continue to cultivate and grow our relationship as partners focused on the future of electrification,” said Volker Weng, Vice President and General Manager, BorgWarner Drivetrain and Battery Systems. “This new business win with our battery technology broadens our industry reach and delivers a more efficient option for school transportation.”
