BorgWarner will manufacture battery systems in a new factory in Brazil, with plans to start operations for the first quarter of 2023.

With BorgWarner’s recent acquisition of AKASOL, the company is expanding its industrial and commercial vehicle electrification capabilities as a global supplier of battery systems. 

We are excited about the demand and market potential for these products and the opportunity to offer our customers a high quality, flexible portfolio of electrified solutions – said Henk Vanthournout, Vice President and General Manager Global Battery Systems. This facility will produce innovative, global, and cutting-edge electric vehicle components.

The facility will be located in Piracicaba, Brazil, allowing BorgWarner to produce battery systems for customers locally and will be launched in phases to meet all quality and safety requirements. The facility and local engineering will support their customers with highly skilled repair, maintenance, and services. BorgWarner will produce the ultra-high energy (UHE) battery system AKASystem AKM CYC. The battery packs are modularly designed and scalable, providing the opportunity to optimally adjust to the energy storage needs of any vehicle application.
