Yamaha’s new generation of “emotional” EV motors

Yamaha has been hard at work developing new electric motors and drive units sized for motorcycles and larger vehicles.

The development began in Yamaha’s motorcycle division, but has apparently grown to include larger motors capable of powering full-sized electric cars…

As part of a new video, Yamaha first shows off a 35kW unit that was developed for electric motorcycles…

On the heavier side of things, Yamaha also shows off a new 150kW unit designed for full-size electric cars. In the video, Yamaha demonstrates a pair of the 150kW Yamaha electric motors powering a rear-wheel drive electric car.

How long do we wait for these critters? After-market-availability?
