Japanese manufacturer says it is designed for cars “and other types of vehicles.”
If you were looking for the perfect electric motor for your EV conversion project, then Yamaha migh
t have the solution for you. It just announced that it’s accepting orders for a high-performance Interior Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (IPMSM) with an output of up to 200 kW (270 horsepower).
The company is calling it a prototype right now, so it may be a limited series motor, but with “industry-leading high power density” it sounds ideal for many DIY projects. And you don’t have to get the max output version since Yamaha will customize each unit it sells to meet the buyer’s specific needs – the lowest output version has 35 kW (47 horsepower).
