ECOmove — In-Wheel Electric Motor Company From Denmark

At the recent EVS27 symposium in Barcelona, I had the opportunity to speak with Mogens Løkke, the director of in-wheel electric motor company ECOmove. Although I have covered in-wheel electric motor company Protean a couple of times, this is the first time I heard about ECOmove. Mogens had a lot of interesting information to share about his company. Check it all out in this exclusive video:

As is critical, ECOmove has developed a suspension system that is “really lightweight,” which solves the concerns of “unsprung mass” that you tend to find with in-wheel motors. Looks like it has potential!

Here’s another video from ECOmove itself, featuring an EV that the company has developed, QBEAK:

    Thanks for posting this. ~50HP per wheel in a ~20+kg package is amazing. No differential, and leaves lots of space in the car for people and stuff.

      Yeah, looks sweet. Surprised he didn’t have it displayed at EVS27
