YASA, the world’s leading manufacturer of axial-flux electric motors,
today announced that a YASA electric motor powers Ferrari’s first hybrid
series production sports car, the SF90 Stradale. YASA have been working
closely with Ferrari over the past two and a half years, developing a
custom version of its electric motor that meets Ferrari’s demanding
performance specifications. The SF90 Stradale was launched by Ferrari on
29 May in Maranello, Italy.
YASA’s innovative axial-flux electric motor designs offer best-in-class
power and torque densities. They are ideally suited to both hybrid and
pure electric vehicle applications. The custom YASA motor in the SF90
Stradale is highly compact with a world-leading power density of
14kW/kg, allowing Ferrari to deliver unparalleled vehicle performance
whilst reducing vehicle weight. The motors will be manufactured in
YASA’s production facility in Oxford, UK.

YASA customer and for Ferrari’s first ever hybrid series production car
– the SF90 Stradale – to be powered by a YASA electric motor. We’ve
worked closely with Ferrari over the past two and a half years to
develop a custom solution that meets their unique performance
requirements, aided by the fact that our companies both share the same
passion for innovation and the same unwavering commitment to excellence.
