EVR motors has developed a unique, patented motor topology: The Trapezoidal Stator Radial Flux Permanent Magnet (TS-RFPM) Motor, enabling smaller, lighter, lower-cost motors, which can be tailored to user requirements. These motors measure half the weight and size of competing electric motors and provide superior power and torque performance, the company claims.

In the 3-wheeler (3W) segment, the collaboration will address both the commercial and passenger vehicles markets (L3 and L5 categories), which are poised for strong growth in India in the coming years. 2-wheeler and 3-wheeler vehicles constitute around 90% of the Indian electric vehicles market. According to estimates, 6 million 3-wheeler vehicles are sold in India annually, and half-million of them are electric 3-wheelers.

EVR is now developing a variety of motors, suitable for most mobility and industrial applications. EVR’s first motors are designed for 2-wheelers and 3-wheelers, as well as light commercial vehicles, and weigh less than half compared to similar power radial flux motors.

Badve Group has already initiated the joint development and localization process at one of its facilities in Pune for manufacturing the electric vehicles (EV) motors and is currently developing prototypes to cater Indian OEMs. The company plans to ramp up its production to an annual capacity of 0.5 million units by mid-2023 to meet the rising demand for EVs.

Badve Group is a leading Tier-1 Automotive system manufacturers in India with a manufacturing footprint across India having a consolidated group revenue of $700 Mn. Badve Group has 29 established state-of-the-art facilities with high levels of automation. The company specializes in automotive component manufacturing for the 2-wheeler, 3-wheeler and 4-wheeler passenger, and commercial vehicle segments. The company’s diverse product portfolio includes metal fabrication, polymer processing, foundry, mirror and suspensions systems, amongst others. With the evolution of EVs, Badve group is geared up to offer products for the entire product ecosystem in the EV value chain.

Israeli startup EVR Motors designs advanced electric motors to meet every customer’s specific requirement. The company’s electric motors are based on proprietary technology that reduces weight, volume, and cost relative to traditional state of the art motors. EVR Motors partners with OEMs and Tier 1s interested in manufacturing superior e-motors, and supports its partners through all the phases, from motor design through prototyping to manufacturing preparation.
