There is no doubt that the path to future mobility passes through the sustainable path, since it is strictly necessary to begin to conserve planet Earth and take seriously this situation that can become a greater evil, much more than what is already lived. Therefore, it is necessary to continue working on developing “green” options and variants.
This is precisely how the parts manufacturer, Mahle, thinks, which works on a power unit that can easily be classified as the engine of the future or sustainable, since it dispenses with magnets, transmitting power through induction, significantly reducing the impact it generates on the environment in addition to providing other benefits.
Reducing costs and increasing safety are part of the advantages offered by this engine that does not need to use the use of mines, comparing its level of performance and effectiveness with the power units used in the FIA Formula E, according to Mahle, with an efficiency slightly above 95%.

How does the electric motor work without magnets?
This engine can not only be used in small or medium-sized vehicles, but it will also be available in large or heavy-duty vehicles thanks to its different levels of performance that are adjusted based on the different applications that are required of it.
Now, from Mahle they ensure that the electric power unit without magnets does not produce any contact between its stationary and rotating elements, completely forgetting the fact of generating friction that produces wear and residues that harm the environment, in fact, maintenance that would have to be done to the engine is practically nil.

Finally, from the company they assure that the cost of the electric motor without magnets will be low compared to other models in relation to price-benefit, although at the moment it is unknown when this piece, quite promising, will be able to be seen in the market completely ready to be assembled on vehicles.
