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. Audi E-tron GT’s two synchronous motors, one at the front and one at the rear, produce a collective 300 kW 664 Nm power output for nought to 100 km/h mph in 3 sec, top speed 238 km/h. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive gives torque vectoring. Two motors are in the following existing and planned cars: BMW X3SUV, Aston Martin RapideE, Mercedes EQC, Tesla S, X and Y. The new IDTechEx Research report, “Electric motors for electric vehicles: Land, Water, Air 2019-2029” has the analysis and appropriately comprehensive forecasts. Avid offers so-called portal two motor systems for buses and trucks: BYD does something similar near-wheel with its own technology for its buses selling at ten thousand yearly levels. Indeed, many in-wheel four-motor cars, trucks and buses are imminent: Nikola trucks have six. The Solaris Urbino pure electric 12 m bus has two axle motors.
