Nidec Sells 100,000 E-Axles Globally

February 3, 2021

Nidec Corporation has recently announced that the global sales of E-Axles, the traction motor systems that the Company develops, produces, and sells, have reached 100,000 units and systems.

Nidec’s E-Axles are characterized by being compact and light-weight as a result of their fully integrated designs that combine motors, inverters and gears. In addition to the Ni150Ex 150 kW model that became the first fully integrated traction motor system of its kind in the world designed by a supplier to enter mass-production in April 2019, Nidec has also developed four other models: Ni200Ex (200 kW), Ni100Ex (100 kW), Ni70Ex (70 kW) and Ni50Ex (50 kW). Armed with this world-class comprehensive lineup, Nidec is capable of supplying traction motor systems that can power an estimated 98% of all electric passenger vehicles. Nidec has set a target of achieving 40 – 45% global market share in the EV traction motor market by 2030, and the E-Axles will serve as an engine of this effort.

As Europe, China and many other countries in the world announce a ban on selling new gasoline vehicles to take effect in 2025 – 2040, Nidec stays committed to developing products based on its technology to make light, thin, short and compact products and improve products’ efficiency and control performance. With these technologies that it has been fostering as the world’s leading comprehensive motor manufacturer, Nidec is poised to provide, at a massive pace, revolutionary solutions that contribute to the evolution of automobiles and CO2 reduction.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
