Israeli startup EVR Motors opens plant in India to manufacture electric motor coils

EVR Motors, an Israel-based electric motor innovator specializing in high power-density electric motors, is starting the operations of a greenfield plant in India under its subsidiary, I.EVR Motors Pvt Ltd. This facility, located in Manesar, will spearhead the production of trapezoidal geometry coils, a patented key component of EVR’s electric motor topology, to serve EVR’s manufacturing partners in India and meet the demand for electric motors in the Indian and global markets.

EVR India’s Manesar plant marks a significant milestone as the first manufacturing operation in India for an Israeli automotive firm. The highly automated plant is designed to provide coils for approximately 20,000 motors per month, with plans for rapid expansion to around 100,000 motors in response to the escalating demand for electric vehicles in the global market.

EVR Motors has developed a motor topology known as the Trapezoidal Stator Radial Flux Permanent Magnet (RFPM) motor, which has received 11 patents. RFPM enables the production of smaller, lighter, and more cost-effective motors which can be tailored to customer requirements.

EVR Motors’ patented topology allows the design of radial flux motors that are less than half in size and weight than current advanced RFPM motors without compromising performance. The SMC-based (Soft Magnetic Composite) three-dimensional trapezoidal tooth enables superior power and torque density, while also obtaining better flux density.

Soft magnetic composites are ferromagnetic particles that come in powder form, and are used in a wide range of industries and applications. EVR uses SMCs to improve performance as opposed to standard steel laminations. In addition to their high availability, high saturation & permeability levels and lower eddy current losses, SMCs exhibit the necessary flexibility to tailor material performance to specific requirements with no added costs.

The trapezoidal coils are pre-wound and then mounted on the stator via a method that creates a high fill factor. With no end windings, the coil’s unique shape is entirely devoted to creating flux density.

The company’s latest motor series can generate more than 150 kW of power from a low cost, compact unit weighing 36 kg. EVR has developed four distinct motor families that offer a wide range of capabilities, including peak power outputs from 6 kW to 150 kW, internal or external rotor topology options, and voltage compatibility ranging from 48V to 800V.

These versatile motors are equipped with air or liquid cooling options, enabling them to be tailored for diverse applications and operating environments.

EVR Motors has already signed commercial agreements with players in the Indian automotive industry, including Napino, Belrise Group, EKA Mobility, and RSB Transmissions. Under these agreements manufacturing of EVR’s motors will commence in 2024, enabling supply of motors across vehicle segments including two/three-wheelers, passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, e-buses and boats. Multiple customers, including well known OEMs in Europe and Asia, are evaluating EVR’s motors, the company said.

EVR Motors has recently appointed Nick Rogers as its new Chairman to spearhead its entry into the automotive market with its electric motors. Rogers has 40 years of automotive experience and previously held key roles such as Chief Technology Officer at Jaguar and Land Rover, as well as Chief Engineer at Ford and BMW. Among his notable accomplishments are leading the development of the electric Jaguar I-PACE, the fully connected Land Rover Defender, the fifth-generation Range Rover and the Range Rover Sport.
