Electric motor maker Linear Labs plans to start mass-producing its new high-torque M200 e-mobility motor for off-the-shelf use in September 2020, targeting a goal of delivering at least 100,000 M200 motors by the end of 2021.

The M200 motor and controller are based on the Hunstable Electric Turbine, an exterior permanent magnet circumferential flux four-rotor machine. These motors use a magnetic tunnel to surround the stator, resulting in twice the torque of competitor motors, or the same torque in half the size. The units can be manufactured with rare-earth or ferrite magnets and offer extended battery life and the performance needed to propel e-bikes and e-scooters up steeper inclines for longer periods of time.Read Article at Engineering 360
