It is headquartered in the United Kingdom and it develops in pioneering way solutions for the automotive electrification and it is particularly in turmoil precisely for the great boom that the segment of electric vehicles is living, also due to the legislator’s contribution. We are speaking of Saietta, in search of new 250 collaborators and that has recently released its latest project: axial flux electric motor design, which combines both distributed windings with a yokeless stator.
Besides, the moment is particularly favourable: it has won a research contract through the Advanced Propulsion Center (APC) of the United Kingdom, but the witness by the chief executive officer of Saietta Group, Wicher Kist, a bit slows down enthusiasms: «We are ready for the future of transportation by stepping in with modern, lightweight electric motors as traditional internal combustion engines fuelled by petrol and diesel reach the end of the road. If the 2030 target is to be met, key decisions on future investment will need to be made quickly so companies like ours realize our full potential. That means more funding from UK government and quickly».
The company aims at a modular approach to its motors that are at the service of a broad range of vehicles, from scooters to trucks. Its first offer of commercial motors, for instance, AFT140, is optimized for the use of medium-size bikes and vehicles for last-mile deliveries, currently much more important solutions in terms of volumes in Asian markets rather than in Western ones. Precisely in this scenario, Saietta has recently announced a remarkable partnership agreement with Padmini VNA, one of the main automotive players in India.
The commercial agreement provides for Padmini collaboration with Saietta to develop new opportunities in the Indian market and renowned Indian two-wheel OEM players stand out among its customers, such as Hero MotorCorp, TVS, Bajaj Auto and Royal Enfield.
