When it comes to meeting your electric vehicle power needs, Electric Motor Power carries a huge range of permanent magnet motors to suit a wide range of electric vehicles and applications such as e-scooters, e-bikes, electric wheelchairs, and electric cars.

In-wheel Applications

For in-wheel applications, Direct-Drive Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors or PMSMs are a popular choice thanks to their compact design and high torque density. 

These motors eliminate the need for a transmission, which results in improved efficiency and reduced mechanical losses. However, it is worth noting that in-wheel motors can increase un-sprung mass, which can affect the vehicle’s handling and ride comfort.

Traction Applications

For traction applications, Interior Permanent Magnet Motors or IPMs are commonly utilised. These particular electric motors offer excellent torque capabilities at low speeds, making them ideal for electric vehicles that require strong acceleration and regenerative braking. 

Their use of rare-earth magnets enhances their efficiency, but they can be costlier and more environmentally sensitive.

SPM Motors

Alternatively, Surface Permanent Magnet Motors or SPMs strike the ideal balance between cost and performance. 

SPMs use surface-mounted magnets, making them cost-effective and suitable for a wide range of electric vehicle applications. However, in some applications, these electric motors may exhibit lower torque density compared to IPMs. 

Ultimately, the choice for the best permanent magnet motor for an electric powered vehicle depends on a number of factors which include…
