What are the Various types of Electric Motors used in Electric Vehicles?

DC Series Motor

DC Series motor’s ability to generate high torque makes it an ideal option for applications related to traction. This type of motor was widely used for traction in the early 1900s. The prominent advantages of DC series motor are ability to withstand a spontaneous rise in load and speed control. Apart from this, the major demerit of DC series motor is high maintenance that is caused due to commutators and brushes. The DC series motors are popularly favoured by the Indian railways and it falls under the category of DC brushed motors.

Brushless DC Motors

This type of motor is similar to DC motors and has permanent magnets. This is known as brushless because it doesn’t consist of brush arrangement and commutator. The commutation is carried out electronically because these types of motors have low maintenance. BLDC motors comprises of traction features like high efficiency and high torque. Apart from this, BLDC motors are a perfect match for high power density design and are preferred for electric vehicle usages.

Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM)

This motor is analogous to BLDC motor and here the rotor contains permanent magnets. Moreover, these motors have traction factors like high efficiency and high power density. The difference between PMSM and BLDC is that BLDC consists of trapezoidal back EMF whereas PMSM favors sinusoidal back EMF.

PMSM is the best for applications in cars and buses and despite high cost of PMSM, it is competing with induction motors because of augmented efficiency than the latter. Moreover, PMSM is costlier than BLDC motors and most of the automotive industries utilize PMSM motors for their electric and hybrid vehicles.

Three Phase AC Induction Motors

The induction motors lack in high starting toque under fixed frequency operation and fixed voltage. However, this feature can be changed by utilizing several control techniques such as v/f or FOC methods. Through these methods, maximum torque is harnessed at the start of the motor and this is ideal for traction applications. The major demerit of an induction motor is that the control of the motor is rather difficult.

In case of permanent magnet motors, the magnet adds to the flux density B. Thus, regulating the value of B in an induction motors is easy as compared to the permanent magnet motors. Moreover, in induction motors the value of flux density can be altered by changing the (V/f) voltage and frequency based on torque requirements and helps in minimizing the losses and enhances efficiency.


All the above stated types of traction motors have their own unique features and applications. Apart from the four prominent motors, there are other small and medium types of traction motors as well.
