Strategy Analytics report highlights increasing integration of EV electric motors
The top innovators are combining electric motors with other components to form e-axles and exploring new concepts such as axial flux, higher 800–900 V voltages, denser stator coil windings, and moving away from costly rare earth materials.
Electric motors in electric vehicles are increasingly being integrated with the inverter and transmission, while new technology concepts, such as axial flux and switched reluctance are being explored to raise efficiency and performance. These are some of the developments covered in the Strategy Analytics’ Electric Vehicle Service (EVS) report “Electric Vehicle Motors: Auto Makers Deploy Integrated E-Axles While Exploring New Technologies.”
“As automakers adjust their businesses to become ‘all-electric,’ they are increasingly looking into integrating their electric motors with other components to form ‘e-axles’ to raise production efficiency and lower production cost, which enables them to use new flexible and modular vehicle platforms,” said Kevin Mak
