The solution

Elaphe Propulsion Solution offers a superior design in a direct driven in-wheel motor placed inside the rim of a vehicle. Recent developments in electromagnetic research enables the use of direct driven electric motors for passenger vehicle operation, ensuring adoption in the largest segment of the automotive industry. A larger design space, a lower centre of gravity, and the reduction of required parts for any vehicle has cost reduction potential.
