AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ever wonder how today's electric vehicle (EV) motors stack up against each other? Going beyond traditional product benchmarking, Munro & Associates Inc. has analyzed and compared 10 leading EV motors and developed a comprehensive side-by-side comparison in its latest report, which is available here.
Designed to help automakers and suppliers to effectively expand and compete in new EV markets, the 437-page report features detailed analyses and comparisons of the Tesla Model 3 front and rear motors; BMW i3; Chevrolet Bolt; Jaguar I-PACE; Nissan Leaf; Audi e-tron front and rear motors; Chevrolet Volt; and Toyota Prius.
Munro has redefined product benchmarking by incorporating its Lean Design®, Quality Report Card®, manufacturing, ergonomic, best-of-best studies and predictive costing into the benchmarking process for the report, which includes:
- Side-by-side motor comparison for torque, power ratings, motor types, application, part count, cost and weight;
- A dedicated report for each motor that provides detailed dimensional data, including dimensions and weights, discreet part dimensions, gauss values of magnets; pole counts and magnet configurations;
- Complete technical cost analysis of each motor, including the stator, rotor, rotor shaft and resolver target wheel (excludes motor housings, gear train, controls); and
- An appendix with supplemental technical performance data and material chemical analysis.
For those interested in EV technology benchmarking information beyond motors, Munro is currently conducting a complete teardown and analysis of the new Tesla Model Y, the fully electric, mid-size SUV. For the first time, Munro is sharing a glimpse of the discovery process via daily videos available on www.MunroLive.com.
