Bentley will take part in the creation of a budget electric motorAugust 16, 2020
The British company has joined the OCTOPUS project.
The upcoming electric car Bentley will receive an integrated electric powertrain with permanent magnets without rare earth elements, which will make it quite budgetary.
Within the framework of the innovative British project OCTOPUS (Optimized Components, Test and simulatiOn, toolkits for Powertrains which integrate Ultra high-speed motor Solutions), which is funded by the state, the developers have been developing an integrated electric power plant for a year and a half. Its main feature will be the absence in the design of rare earth elements (specifically, neodymium and samarium), as well as copper windings, which, firstly, will significantly reduce the cost of the electric motor, and secondly, will significantly increase the degree of its processing at the end of its service life.
The new motor should also become smaller: it will be a gearbox, a pair of electric motors on the sides of it and a control electronics unit, combined into a single unit.
