Validated: DeepDrive in-wheel motor has highest efficiency in the market

DeepDrive News: 11.01.2023

Great news from the DeepDrive HQ!

We have fully validated the function of our in-wheel motor RM300 and are happy to announce that all results exceed expectations: our efficiency is higher, we have more torque, and our peak performance is better than simulated.

Our gearless 48-volt drive system has an overall efficiency of over 94% including inverter-losses, which makes it the 48V drive unit with the best overall efficiency on the market.

Many thanks to Yokogawa for providing us with the Power Analyser WT5000, which allows us to measure the efficiency with great accuracy.

Großartige Neuigkeiten aus dem DeepDrive HQ!


Wir haben die Funktion unseres In-Wheel-Motors RM300 vollständig validiert und freuen uns, bekannt geben zu können, dass alle Ergebnisse unsere Erwartungen übertreffen: unser Wirkungsgrad ist höher, wir haben mehr Drehmoment und unsere Spitzenleistung ist besser als simuliert.

Unser getriebeloses 48-Volt-Antriebssystem hat einen Gesamtwirkungsgrad von über 94 %, einschließlich der Umrichterverluste, und ist damit die 48-Volt-Antriebseinheit mit dem besten Gesamtwirkungsgrad auf dem Markt.

Vielen Dank an Yokogawa für die Bereitstellung des Power Analyser WT5000, mit dem wir den Wirkungsgrad mit großer Genauigkeit messen können.

About DeepDrive

DeepDrive is a Munich-based high-tech startup offering e-motors for EVs. With our revolutionary new electric motor technology, we address the main problems of today’s electric vehicles by significantly reducing their cost by €3,000+ and increasing vehicle range by 20%. In addition, the technology is so compact that, instead of a central position, it can be integrated inside the wheels. At DeepDrive, we combine a radically new design with proven, deep expertise in the industrialisation of powertrains and develop a technology made for low-cost large-scale production. We received huge interest from the automotive industry and are working with 8 of the top 10 automakers in multiple development projects. With main partnerships already set up, we aim to start small series production by 2024 and proceed with large-scale series production by 2026.

DeepDrive is backed by renowned high-tech investors such as UVC Partners and Bayern Kapital, as well as business angels Jonas Rieke (COO of Personio) and Peter Mertens (former board member at Audi and Volvo).
