AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BorgWarner supplies its highly modular and robust 90mJ single spark ignition coil for Daimler's new M260 and M264 4-cylinder in-line gasoline engines for the European and Chinese markets. Locally produced in Germany and China from 2017 and 2018, respectively, BorgWarner's tried-and-tested ignition technology provides a robust solution for the premium automaker's high-volume, 48V-equipped motor platform. The highly modular and durable system is part of BorgWarner's range of latest ignition technologies that increase fuel efficiency and performance while reducing emissions.
"Our advanced ignition technologies have already been featured in numerous Daimler engines, delivering high ignition energy for maximum efficiency," said Joe Fadool, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Emissions & Thermal Systems. "As a product leader in clean and efficient technology solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles, we are excited to help our customers optimize their combustion engines to meet increasingly strict emissions regulations while improving the driving experience."
