Electric Motor Manufacturer YASA Raises Added £15m in Funding, Opens UK Production Facility

| February 2, 2018


YASA, a leading manufacturer of axial-flux electric motors and controllers, announced raising £15 million in growth funding. Universal Partners joins Parkwalk Advisors and other existing investors in the round, bringing the total raised by the company to £35 million.

The company has recently opened a new 100,000-unit capacity production facility in Oxford, UK to meet the growing demand for its products. Eighty per cent of YASA’s production is destined for export to automotive manufacturers across the world, including China.

YASA’s axial-flux electric motor design offers what it describes as “best-in-class power and torque densities” and is suited to both hybrid and pure electric vehicle applications. With YASA’s technology, automotive manufacturers have greater design flexibility to improve vehicle performance whilst reducing vehicle weight.

Here’s what’s at play: YASA motors and controllers enable automotive manufacturers to meet increasingly stringent emissions targets whilst delivering exciting driving experiences. In addition to automotive, YASA motors are used in marine applications and in aerospace where high power density and torque density are critical.

Dr. Chris Harris, YASA’s CEO said, “Our customers are looking to adopt innovative new technologies such as YASA’s axial-flux electric motors and controllers in order to meet the needs of the rapidly expanding hybrid and pure electric automotive market.”
