Next Electric Vehicles Get Ultra Lightweight Motors

Next Electric Vehicles Get Ultra Lightweight Motors

In electric aircraft, motor power-to-weight ratio is paramount for endurance, the main constraint on sales. You cannot lug ever more battery weight to get range. Indeed, better motors mean less battery in a land, water or air vehicle. The new IDTechEx Research report, "Electric Motors for Electric Vehicles: Land, Water, Air 2019-2029" explains the new emphasis on power-to-weight ratio with good efficiency.

Electric Vehicles in China: New Insights

Electric Vehicles in China: New Insights

China is key to the future of electric vehicles because of formidable innovation and global reach as much as biggest market demand. The new IDTechEx Research report, "Electric Vehicles in China 2019-2029", finds that the market penetration and technical innovation in China of electric buses is more impressive than electric cars. However, it finds that China is extremely backward in certain respects and its success and priorities are not always those that the global media portray.

Electric Vehicle Motor Proliferation Spurs Huge Market

Traction motor sales grow faster than electric vehicle sales because small vehicles such as mobility for the disabled have two motors. IFEVS has put two in microcars for four-wheel drive. In larger cars, two motors is now commonplace for economy, performance, four-wheel drive, vectored steering and attack survival.
