Smart mobility platform manufacturers typically position electric motors outboard but not in-wheel. Earlier this year, Saietta demonstrated the potential of its AFT technology as an in-wheel motor application by developing its own smart mobility platform. Located at the four corners of a platform, the AFT in-wheel electric motors provide excellent manoeuvrability, flexibility, modularity and four-wheel drive capability. The Saietta technology is also effective at regenerative braking, which puts energy back into the battery pack, thereby extending the range on a single charge. It specialises in propulsion motors for a broad range of electric vehicles (EVs) and has engineered breakthrough axial-flux motor tech.
