iBooster donor vehicles

The iBooster made by Bosch is used in many modern cars. Most well known example probably is the Tesla Model S for the GEN1 and the Tesla Model 3 for the GEN2. But did you know at least 10 other cars are also using the iBooster? Below an overview of iBooster donor vehicles.

iBooster used in electric vehicles (BEV and plugin)

This page provides an overview if possible sources for used iBoosters, where possible including model year (MY) info. You can also check out the EV parts directory for manufacturer part number overviews (online soon).

iBooster GEN1

The GEN1 can be recognized by the rectangular shaped ECU.

The GEN2 iBooster is a bit odd shaped and has the ECU connector pointing forwards.

So far only the pinout and wiring of the Tesla iBooster has been tested by EVcreate. So while our connector kit for GEN1 and connector kit for GEN2 fit the other iBooster donor cars too, the pinout for other donors have not been fully verified.
