Compact & configurable motor for your application

Your electric vehicle partner

Efficient motors require a deep insight into design, manufacturing and integration. Motors are very different from internal combustion engines, with very different design and development challenges. ABB is a trusted partner that will assist you from drawing board to aftermarket. Our global presence mean that manufacturing, service and support are always close at hand.

Fully configurable and customizable

Flanges and shafts can be standard or customized at your request. Torque and speed are adapted to the vehicle type and its duty cycle, while low inertia motors provide fast control. Compact design and torque density reduce the vehicle’s outer dimensions, and different IP classes and surface treatments allow the versatility for vehicles to operate in aggressive atmospheres. Each of these aspects is configurable and customizable in ABB’s motors.

Optimized for your application

No two applications are exactly the same, and so each motor must be adapted to the actual drive cycle. ABB’s platform is based on proven parts that are combined into task-specific solutions. As such, customized motors can be delivered quickly, with each product guaranteed to meet ABB’s renowned high standards.

Efficiency at its core

ABB’s electric motors are fundamentally energy efficient, and achieve low energy losses throughout the drive cycle. With a record of delivering high quality traction solutions for over 130 years, ABB knows what it takes to make electric mobility work optimally, and has the expertise to develop, implement and leverage extremely sophisticated technologies and systems.
