Nexteer Automotive supplying BMW i3 with its single-pinion electric power steering system

BUENA VISTA TOWNSHIP, MI Officials at Buena Vista Township s Nexteer Automotive announced the company will provide the electrically powered BMW i3 with its single-pinion, electric power steering system, featuring Nexteer s new electronic architecture that enables automakers to introduce new and increasingly complex steering functions.

BMW is known around the world as the Ultimate Driving Machine, and our advanced steering systems deliver the performance and steering characteristics that BMW customers demand, Laurent Bresson, president and global chief operating officer at Nexteer, said in a prepared statement. Nexteer s EPS (electric power steering) systems are becoming the steering system of choice for global automakers as they deliver premium performance capabilities and functional safety features that allow them to meet specific market and customer demands.

Bresson, Frank Lubischer, vice president, global engineering and chief operating officer European operations, Mike Richardson, executive director, senior vice president, chief technology and strategy officer, and Joe Perkins, senior vice president and chief financial officer, are attending the North American International Auto Show going on now in Detroit to mingle with customers and friends and potentially recruit engineers.

The auto show takes place place through Sunday, Jan. 26.

Nexteer officials say the company s unique electric power steering system is ideal for EV applications. They say a key factor in Nexteer’s ability to design, engineer and manufacture such complex and highly tunable steering systems is its fully integrated electronic systems design and software development center.

Our leading edge electronics and software architecture, along with our advanced software functionality enables our customers to add new driver assist functionality throughout the life cycle of the vehicle, Lubischer added in the prepared statement. Nexteer s commitment to listening and understanding our customers needs and our ability to deliver products that are personalized to each automakers brand DNA is certainly paying off.

Nexteer s single-pinion EPS system also is featured on the 2014 Mini Cooper that made its North American debut during the LA Auto Show in November, the release states.
