Yasa has signed a long-term joint innovation agreement with an unnamed global automotive OEM.

The partnership will focus on developing custom electric motor and controller solutions for the OEM’s hybrid and pure electric vehicles.

YASA’s axial-flux electric motor and controller designs offer power and torque densities and are suited to both hybrid and pure electric vehicle applications. With the agreement, Yasa and the OEM will work together to leverage Yasa’s technology to improve vehicle performance while reducing vehicle weight.

The news follows Yasa’s announcement last year of a new 100,000 unit capacity series production facility in Oxford, UK. In addition to automotive, Yasa is also addressing the electric aerospace market.

Last month, the company said it was partnering with Rolls-Royce to provide electric motors to power an electric aircraft, scheduled for launch in 2020.
