It looks like Yamaha is going all-out on their electric motor development ... this will be great for EVs of all types going forward.


When it comes to electric vehicles, Yamaha’s electric bicycle division has been charging into the future while its electric motorcycle division has been oddly quiet and unproductive — at least outwardly. But now we’re getting a new look at a series of electric motors that Yamaha has been developing — motors that could rapidly progress Yamaha’s EV efforts.

Yamaha has been hard at work developing new electric motors and drive units sized for motorcycles and larger vehicles. The development began in Yamaha’s motorcycle division, but has apparently grown to include larger motors capable of powering full-sized electric cars. As part of a new video, Yamaha first shows off a 35kW unit that was developed for electric motorcycles.

I should add that Ebikes are included in the EV category for sustainable transportation. ;)
