1.1. Product history First generation - 1998

The Haldex Coupling made its first appearance in the Audi TT, Audi S3 8L and VW Golf with an electronically controlled hydraulic-mechanical all-wheel drive concept. This system attempts to engage the rear wheels when the front wheels start to slip.


1.2. Product history Second generation - 2001

The second generation of Haldex coupling is an electronically controlled permanent 4x4 system with a Haldex differential calculating how much drive should be directed to the rear wheels. The Haldex system automatically distributes power between the front and rear wheels depending on slippage, but normally sends 95% of the power to the front wheels.


1.3. Product history Third generation - 2006

The third generation of Haldex coupling made its appearance on the newly re-designed Land Rover Freelander 2 LR2 in the United States. With enhanced capabilities, it is aimed at providing a more immediate off-road response.

This generation of Haldex coupling is later shared with Volvos complete lineup Manufactured 2005-2008, depending on model and is called "Instant Traction" in documentation by Volvo.


1.4. Product history Fourth generation - 2007

Saab introduced a combination of Haldex Couplings on its 9-3 Turbo-X in late 2007, called XWD Cross-Wheel Drive. This was later introduced to the rest of Saabs lineup including the 9-3, 9-3X, 9-5 and 9-4X.


1.5. Product history Fifth generation

On 16 April 2009 Haldex announced a deal worth SEK4.5B approx US$530M to provide Volkswagen with a new AWD system for the companys new modular platform due in 2012. The GenV AWD coupling, now distributed by BorgWarner TorqTransfer Systems, features a new design aimed at reducing vehicle complexity and simplifying integration into the drivetrain.

It also employs an integrated electronic control unit.
