Huge market for electric vehicle motors

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.
