The integrated package will allow previously separate components to be replaced by a single, compact two-wheel drive solution offering the highest combined torque-to-weight available of over 30Nm/kg from a package that will sit in the volume typically required for a differential. The YASA motor, originally developed by the Energy and Power Group (EPG), is characterized by a high efficiency of up to 95 %, a very high torque to weight ratio, and the potential for low-cost manufacturing.
The joint venture between Oxford YASA Motors and Sevcon indicates the commitment of both companies to develop and market this solution with the appropriate infrastructure and leadership in place to deliver customer projects and ensure success, the parent companies said.
The collaboration will be led by Mike Dowsett as the Vice President of Business Development working for Oxford YASA Motors, with reporting responsibility to both Nick Farrant, and Matt Boyle, President & CEO of Sevcon. Dowsett is a qualified leader with more than 28 years experience in the automotive industry.
Prior to joining Oxford YASA Motors, Dowsett engineering teams at Visteon, FEV and Controlled Power Technologies.
