Aurobay to Supply Powertrain Solutions to Turkish Industrial Giant Habaş

Under a recently signed agreement, Aurobay will supply complete powertrain solutions for Habaş’ new passenger cars, with production scheduled to start by the end of 2026. This marks Aurobay's first major OEM contract outside Europe and China and is an important step in expanding its product portfolio and reaching new markets. This announcement comes after Aurobay joined HORSE Powertrain Limited on Friday 31 May.

Matias Giannini, HORSE Powertrain Limited CEO said, ‘This is HORSE Powertrain’s first contract as an independent company and reinforces the value of our scale, capabilities and global footprint. The contract will be delivered by Aurobay from our Sweden and China facilities, highlighting our commitment to leveraging our global expertise to deliver state-of-the-art powertrain solutions.’

As Michael Fleiss, CEO Aurobay Sweden, notes: ‘We are extremely pleased to be working with Habaş, a partner that shares our vision of innovation and quality. We look forward to delivering our groundbreaking solutions to the Turkish market’.

Habaş is an established industrial conglomerate in Turkey and is entering the automotive industry with the launch of a range of electric, diesel and hydrogen powered buses, midibuses and trucks. It has now acquired the closing HONDA Türkiye production plant in Şekerpınar to produce passenger cars.

Aurobay will supply two versions of powertrains: a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder mild hybrid engine with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) and a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine with dedicated hybrid transmission (DHT) to be used in a plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV).

Production for these powertrains is scheduled to start during the fourth quarter of 2026.
