Average BEV Motor Power Up 14% Year-over-Year in December 2019

Feb. 27, 2020

Strong sales of high-powered BEV models continue to drive the average up

In December 2019, the average battery electric vehicle (“BEV”) sold globally had a total motor power of 158.4 kW, up 14% from 138.8 kW in December 2018, according to Adamas Intelligence’s EV Motor Power Monthly report and data service.

This increase was driven in large part by strong sales of high-powered BEV models, such as the Tesla Model 3, GAC Aion S, Audi e-Tron Quattro and Nio ES6.

By traction motor type, the sales-weighted average induction motor deployed in December 2019 had a power of 193.0 kW, the sales-weighted average permanent magnet synchronous motor had a power of 101.1 kW and the sales-weighted average externally excited synchronous motor had a power of 73.7 kW.

Why does motor power matter?

For a permanent magnet synchronous motor, in general, motor power is a function of the mass (and grade) of neodymium-iron-boron (“NdFeB”) magnet used. As such, total motor power deployed is a primary determinant of overall NdFeB demand.
