BY QUINCY PRESTON • JUL 28, 2020 The technological advancement of these motors is “as big of an impact on minimizing global energy consumption as any major battery breakthrough could have,” says Linear Labs’ VP of Technology . Four M200 motors in a four-wheeled vehicle “can provide more peak torque than a 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S engine.”
Fort Worth-based Linear Labs is moving into “phase two” of manufacturing its smart electric motors. On the heels of a $68.9 million economic incentive deal with the City of Fort Worth last month, the startup has announced mass production of an energy-efficient, high-torque motor to expand plug-and-play power uses in e-bikes, e-scooters, autonomous robots, and more.
