Welcome to the third part of our four-part DeepDrive DeepDive, where we dive deeper into the incredible world of our groundbreaking in-wheel motor technology. If you haven’t watched the first two parts yet, you can catch them here: PART 1 and PART 2. In this installment, we explore the unique features and advantages of our in-wheel drive system, highlighting its potential to redefine electric vehicle powertrains.

Unleashing the Potential

What sets the DeepDrive’s in-wheel drive apart from traditional powertrains? In-wheel motors have long been recognized as a promising concept for electric vehicles, offering advantages such as increased space utilization, torque vectoring capabilities, and the ability to enable innovative vehicle designs. However, widespread adoption has been hindered by challenges related to production cost and weight.

Our Dual Rotor, Radial Flux Topology

DeepDrive’s Dual Rotor, Radial Flux in-wheel motor technology addresses these challenges head-on. Our innovative design achieves an exceptional balance of high torque density and low material cost, overcoming the limitations of traditional in-wheel motors. By eliminating the need for a gearbox, our technology maximizes efficiency gains, unlocking the full potential of the powertrain.

Unmatched Performance

Our in-wheel motors deliver impressive performance figures, capable of generating up to 2400Nm of torque and 200kW of power per wheel. This versatility enables their application across a wide range of electric vehicles, from small and compact models to large SUVs and luxury cars. With compatibility for both 400-volt and 800-volt battery systems, our in-wheel motors are truly plug-and-play, making them an ideal solution for various electric vehicle platforms.

Addressing Unsprung Masses

The issue of unsprung masses has long been a topic of concern when it comes to in-wheel motors. Unsprung masses can significantly impact vehicle design, safety, driving comfort, and suspension systems. However, we have successfully tackled this challenge through our innovative approach.

Our lightweight drive units, thanks to the high torque density of our technology, contribute to minimizing unsprung masses. Furthermore, the high power density of our machines allows us to reduce the size of the mechanical brake at the rear axle, or even eliminate it altogether. This ensures that the overall increase in unsprung masses when using our in-wheel motors remains negligible compared to traditional front axle-driven systems.


The DeepDrive in-wheel drive technology represents a monumental leap forward in electric vehicle powertrains. By addressing the limitations of traditional in-wheel motors, we have unlocked new possibilities for efficiency, performance, and design flexibility. With our plug-and-play compatibility, our motors are ready to drive the future of electric mobility.
