Copper Rotor Induction Motor: The Better Solution to Power Electric Vehicles

The copper rotor induction motor is a strong alternative to the permanent magnet motor for electric vehicle traction when comparing cost, performance and reliability. Permanent magnet motors often used for vehicle propulsion require rare earth metals, while copper rotor induction motors do not. Prices for rare earth metals have increased substantially in the last two years, leaving the automotive industry with a strong need to implement a more cost effective alternative without giving up motor performance.
