ROLLE, Switzerland, October 1, 2021— Garrett Motion Inc. (Nasdaq: GTX), a leading differentiated technology provider for the automotive industry, today announced it received a 2021 Automotive News PACE Award for its proprietary Electric Turbo (E-Turbo).
The annual PACE (Premier Automotive Suppliers’ Contribution to Excellence) Awards recognize superior innovation, technological advancement, and business performance among automotive suppliers. The award winners were selected by an independent panel of judges and honored at a virtual ceremony on September 30, 2021.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as an Automotive News PACE Awards winner for our innovative E-Turbo,” said Olivier Rabiller, Garrett President and Chief Executive Officer. “This prestigious PACE Award is our first in electrification and fourth overall in the past 10 years and is a testament of Garrett expertise to develop industry-first and highly differentiated technologies. Garrett’s E-Turbo draws upon our in-house advanced capabilities in high-speed motor, high-power density motor, high current and switching frequency inverter and motor control software. Our world-class engineers successfully overcame the many challenges in thermal management, energy recovery, compact packaging and high-volume and low-cost design to develop this breakthrough E-Turbo. Garrett is well positioned to support the future of electrification including hybrids, fuel cell and any other applications requiring a new approach to problem solving the most pressing needs of the industry.”
Garrett’s E-Turbo utilizes a high-speed electric motor positioned on the turbo shaft to spool the compressor more rapidly and eliminate lag, dramatically improving transient engine performance and low-end engine torque. The new technology provides more power and faster response while further enabling engine efficiency.

ROLLE, Switzerland, October 1, 2021— Garrett Motion Inc. (Nasdaq: GTX), a leading differentiated technology provider for the automotive industry, today announced it has launched a new software solution focused on Model-Based Predictive Control (MPC) technology with Hyundai Motor Company (HMC).
Garrett’s advanced MPC technology is able to predict and preemptively optimize how a system operates in real-world conditions, enabling all types of light and commercial vehicles, whether ICE, hybrid, battery electric, or hydrogen fuel cell powered, to improve performance, efficiency and reliability. Despite its potential, MPC has been rarely used in the automotive industry primarily due to the complexity of its implementation and computational requirements. However, Garrett created a solution to overcome these challenges by providing a complete toolchain to make the implementation and deployment of the technology much faster and straightforward, allowing efficient implementation on current and future vehicle platforms. The rollout of Garrett’s embedded MPC for use in HMC’s passenger vehicles is another fundamental step in bringing this technology to the global automotive industry for all types of vehicles.
The launch by Garrett encompasses Hyundai’s all-new i20 N and is expected to include other vehicle models equipped with HMC’s new 1.6-liter turbocharged engine. Garrett’s next-generation software enables OEMs to optimize vehicle performance and deliver superior fuel economy and emissions by predictively optimizing boost control and health management control. It has been integrated within the existing electronic control unit (ECU) and comes with a calibration tool that empowers OEMs to configure and calibrate Garrett’s software to realize breakthrough results in performance as well as reduced development efforts and costs.
