YASA is at the forefront of eMotor innovation and development. Our axial flux technology motors are up to 4x more powerful than those used in nearly all Electric Vehicles on the road today, whilst being around 50% smaller & lighter.
We already feature in some of the best eMotor applications across multiple sectors, and now as part of Mercedes-Benz, with sites in Oxfordshire and Welshpool, we are accelerating development of axial flux eMotors and Control Systems for of the next generation of Electric Vehicles.
YASA’s Axial Flux Electric Motors and Controllers provide the greatest efficiencies and highest power and torque density in their class, for the smallest size and weight. Uniquely, our axial flux electric motors feature a proprietary ‘Yokeless And Segmented Armature’.
Axial Flux In Motion
An Electric Leap Forward:
“I was five weeks into my PhD at Oxford University, when I suddenly realised there was a much better way to build an electric machine called a torus axial flux motor. The insight I had was that by removing the motor's stator yoke, and splitting it into segments, we could reduce the motor's weight – and yet at the same time improve its torque, power density, efficiency and manufacturability, making it potentially transformative within the then nascent electrification industry.”
