Saietta Group plc (Saietta), specialists in e-mobility propulsion, has delivered a step change in motor performance for electric vehicles. Saietta’s Axial Flux Technology (AFT) electric motors have been shown to provide greater efficiency while also being light, compact and easily integrated into a wide range of e-mobility applications.
As vehicle manufacturers scramble to decarbonise and develop new electric vehicles (EVs), there is a significant and growing demand to make EV technology more accessible. Affordable electric propulsion and battery systems are key to reducing EV cost and enabling widespread adoption. This is an essential step for many emerging economies and cities that are gripped by chronic air pollution, especially in Asia.
Within these regions, the most common forms of transport are lightweight two-, three- and four-wheeled vehicles, which are used by millions of people daily. Following research, Saietta believes the fastest way to tackle the emissions crisis is to provide viable electric motor alternatives for small, ICE vehicles.
With an intimate understanding of the challenges currently facing EV manufacturers, Saietta has addressed industry requirements with its AFT series of electric motors. Heralded as an enabler of widespread electrification, its first AFT e-motors – the AFT 140 and AFT 110 – are designed to offer greater efficiency while providing a reliable, cost-effective propulsion solution with zero tailpipe emissions. Their exceptional urban duty cycle efficiency reduces the battery capacity and hence cost of the battery pack required for a given range.
For their size and weight, the AFT motors provide substantial torque and can sustain high output through the addition of a simple water-cooling system. Perhaps most importantly, they have been specifically designed for highly automated production to further drive down cost, ensuring the perfect combination of practical performance at a price point that is viable for target markets.
