The Evolution of the Electric Vehicle Market

High-performance electric vehicles (EV) are growing in popularity. Models with more than 500 horsepower peak power are forecast to account for 13% of total EV sales by 2030. At least 14 new EV models with more than 700 horsepower are planned. Automotive manufacturers will adopt improved power and torque-dense, efficient, compact powertrain technology to meet the new requirements for these high-performance EVs.

In this white paper you will learn:

Evolution of Electric Vehicle Market

Improvement of Performance with Iron Cobalt Alloys

The soft magnetic stator and rotor iron play an important role in motor performance. Presently, nearly 3% silicon-containing soft magnetic non-grain oriented steel (NGOS electrical steel) of about 0.25–0.35 mm lamination thickness is most commonly used. Iron cobalt (FeCo) alloys demonstrate higher induction and enhanced permeability as compared to NGOS.
