Ferrari selects YASA Electric Motor for SF90 Stradale, the company’s first hybrid production series supercar
31 May 2019
YASA, the leading manufacturer of axial-flux electric motors, announced that a YASA electric motor powers Ferrari’s first hybrid series production sports car, the SF90 Stradale.
YASA has been working closely with Ferrari over the past two and a half years, developing a custom version of its electric motor that meets Ferrari’s performance specifications. The SF90 Stradale was launched by Ferrari on 29 May in Maranello, Italy.
YASA’s innovative axial-flux electric motor designs offer best-in-class power and torque densities. They are suited to both hybrid and pure electric vehicle applications. The custom YASA motor in the SF90 Stradale is highly compact with a world-leading power density of 14 kW/kg, allowing Ferrari to deliver unparalleled vehicle performance whilst reducing vehicle weight. The motors will be manufactured in YASA’s production facility in Oxford, UK.
would be cool if electric motor engineering dev was accelerated with an anything goes approach in the F1 and Formula E (ok, and Electric GT) series. Ferrari could use a YASA KERS system!

Considering the improvements associated with F1, I would expect more interesting stuff shared with mass production cars
