Today’s EVs are primarily driven by permanent magnet motors. The future of these motors depend on the availability of rare earth minerals, which are environmentally devastating to produce and monopolized by one country, China.
Switched reluctance motors (SRMs) are an emerging alternative, with decades of reliability testing in zero-fault-tolerant applications, and no rare earths. Recent advances in power electronics and IoT are boosting SRMs to new, highly energy efficient applications. Learn more about how quickly SRMs are advancing, and why they show the efficiency, reliability, and simplicity of manufacturing to be the future of mobility.
