Toyota: big gains from downsizing PM motor

Toyota: big gains from downsizing PM motor

While forklifts, buses, Tesla cars and some new electric motorcycles tend to use asynchronous (induction) traction motors, most other cars and motorcycles stick to permanent magnet machines, seeing considerable development potential including using less permanent magnet material with its potentially high cost.

Axial flux traction motor with 15% advantage

Axial flux traction motor with 15% advantage

The first electric motor in the world was made by Michael Faraday over 160 years ago and it was axial flux yet almost all traction motors have been radial flux ever since.

Elimination of electric vehicle systems

Elimination of electric vehicle systems

Following the trend to two or more traction motors per vehicle, the Technical University of Berlin with Infineon is merging their motor controllers and the on-board charger (OBC). Infineon now has a special chip to assist. At EVS29 in Montreal June 2016, Dr Martin Bruell of Continental AG, Germany, revealed progress on elimination of the OBC.

Electric vehicle market in Canada

Electric vehicle market in Canada

The electric vehicle market in Canada is small, but growing. At the end of year 2015, there were close to 18,500 EVs registered in Canada representing less than 0.1% of all light-duty vehicles on the road. In total, there are now 21 different plug-in models of EVs available, made by 12 different manufacturers and this number is constantly increasing.
