Saietta, specialists in high-tech advanced e-mobility propulsion, has announced the 100% acquisition of e-Traction from Evergrande New Energy Vehicle Group. The move accelerates Saietta’s growth strategy by adding new commercial and technical capabilities and an established power electronics production facility.
Netherlands-based e-Traction is a designer and supplier of electric drivetrains for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) and buses, as well as a designer and manufacturer of high voltage power electronics, including inverters and control systems.
The acquisition of e-Traction advances the development and commercial deployment of Saietta’s high voltage AFT (Axial Flux Technology) electric motor designs and brings additional product variants into Saietta’s portfolio – encompassing complementary power electronics and heavy-vehicle drivetrains.
The addition of e-Traction’s e-axle technology in particular complements the work already done by Saietta on its high-voltage AFT 190 electric motors. As a complete e-powertrain package, this extends the application range of Saietta from scooters to buses and will help to bring affordable electric propulsion to places gripped by chronic air pollution – one of the company’s founding business goals.
All current e-Traction employees will join the Saietta team, bringing with them many years of experience in designing, manufacturing and marketing specialist electric drivetrains.
