Advanced Electric Machines

Advanced Electric Machines (AEM) is designing and manufacturing a range of uniquely sustainable electric traction motors for customers around the world. AEM works with clients in the commercial vehicle, passenger car, off-highway and aerospace sectors producing motors that allow vehicles to go faster and travel further, whilst remaining much greener than other technologies due to our elimination of environmentally damaging rare earth magnets. We also remove copper, which means our motors are fully recyclable at end-of-life, all whilst ensuring market-leading performance and efficiency.

AEM collaborates with world-class academics, global vehicle manufacturers and leading industrial partners to deliver the most sustainable and highest performing technologies for electric vehicles across a variety of projects.

From creating uniquely high-powered, e-axle systems with Bentley Motors for their world-renowned luxury cars, to delivering breakthrough integrated solutions for the next generation of electrified commercial vehicles with Tevva Electric Trucks.
