The less than 100 kW segment to show a significant growth rate during the forecast period.
The less than 100 kW market is projected to register a CAGR of 32.5% during the forecast period. The less than 100 kW power output is primarily found in smaller electric vehicles, such as small electric vans, designed for efficiency in short-distance applications, offering an eco-friendly alternative for urban logistics and last-mile deliveries. These vans are becoming increasingly popular among logistics companies for their ability to easily navigate congested city streets, reducing emissions and noise pollution. Their design and electric propulsion make them suitable for quick and efficient deliveries, contributing to the overall evolution of urban logistics toward more sustainable and environmentally conscious practices.
Various leading OEMs offer electric commercial vehicles with power outputs below 100 kW as the demand for sustainable last-mile delivery has significantly increased. For instance, Tata Motors (India) targeted the intra-city cargo transport operators for e-commerce, FMCG, and courier businesses and began the deliveries of the electric Ace in 2023, with a power output of 27 kW, offering a lower total cost of ownership. MAHLE Group (Germany), Schaeffler Group (Germany), BorgWarner (US), and Robert Bosch GmbH (Germany), among others, offer various motors in this segment.
“The radial flux motors of the design segment are to show significant growth during the forecast period.”
Radial flux motors are experiencing a surge in demand within the electric commercial vehicle traction motor market due to several factors. Their robust torque output and high power density make them suitable for heavy-duty commercial vehicles, such as delivery trucks and buses. These vehicles require significant pulling power and acceleration capabilities offered by radial flux motors, ensuring optimal performance in urban environments and on highways. Additionally, these motors provide enhanced efficiency, contributing to extended driving range and reduced energy consumption, which is crucial for commercial fleet operators seeking to minimize operational costs and maximize profitability.
With electric commercial vehicles often needing to accommodate cargo, passengers, and various onboard systems, the compactness of radial flux motors allows for more efficient vehicle packaging and layout optimization. This feature enables manufacturers to design vehicles with larger cargo capacities and enhances overall maneuverability and agility, essential for navigating congested urban areas and making frequent stops during delivery routes. Whether powering delivery vans, buses, or heavy-duty trucks, these motors can be tailored to deliver optimal performance, torque, and efficiency, thereby accommodating the diverse needs of commercial fleet operators. Additionally, their scalability enables the deployment of radial flux motor technology across various vehicle sizes and classes, further expanding their market penetration within the electric commercial vehicle traction motor segment.
“Europe is expected to become second largest growing market for electric commercial vehicle traction motor during the forecast period.”
The European electric commercial vehicle traction motor market is on the rise, with stringent environmental regulations propelling market players to develop advanced e-axles and traction motor. Major ECV traction motor manufacturers, such as Robert Bosch GmbH (Germany), ZF Friedrichshafen AG (Germany), Schaeffler AG (Germany), MAHLE GmbH (Germany) and among others, are focusing on developing advanced electric traction motor and integrated axles, leading to a significant rise in demand for electric traction motors for commercial vehicle. In April 2023, Schaeffler AG (Schaeffler) started mass production of its in-wheel motor type electric drives. The company will supply the product to companies that manufacture road sweepers, snowplow vehicles, and compact vans for local governments and other organizations.
The government’s intense focus on imposing stringent environmental regulations encourages market players to develop advanced vehicles and set up facilities wherein various critical vehicle parts are tested, which will further propel the growth of the market for high-power-output traction motors. In February 2023, ZF Commercial Vehicle Technology (Jiaxing) Co., Ltd. (ZF) and Beiqi Foton Motor Co., Ltd. (Foton Motor) planned to jointly build an AMT (automated manual transmission) plant for mid-sized vehicles. The plant will be built in Nanhu District, Jiaxing City, Zhejiang Province. It will house assembly and testing lines for AMTs installed in mid-sized vehicles. The growth of the region’s electric commercial vehicle traction motor market is due to favorable government incentives and emission-free public transportation policies which is increasing the demand for ECVs, which in turn is supporting the market growth of traction motors for ECVs. In February 2023, the European Union proposed ambitious CO2 standards for most new trucks and coaches (90% emissions reduction by 2040) and urban buses (100% zero-emission city bus sales by 2030). Countries in the region have set up regulations to shift to EVs and used supply contracts to increase their EV fleets. In September 2023, FedEx Express Europe, a subsidiary of FedEx Corporation, announced the addition of 23 Mercedes-Benz battery-electric eSprinter vans to its UK operations. These eSprinter vans assist FedEx Express in achieving its objectives for locally emissions-free delivery and pickup. Thus all the aforementioned parameters are increasing the demand of electric commercial vehicle traction motor market in the region during forecasted period.

Building better ethical standards for AI, for democracy





In our swiftly advancing digital realm, Artificial Intelligence (AI) presents both a formidable challenge to and a significant opportunity for the health of democracy. One emerging threat to democratic systems stems from malicious actors who seek to exploit AI to disrupt societal cohesion.
The unchecked proliferation of AI language models has underscored the urgent need for robust ethical standards. Core principles such as privacy, algorithm transparency, user safety, fairness, and inclusivity have often been overlooked amid the rapid progress of AI technologies. Establishing and rigorously testing clear ethical guidelines is crucial to ensuring that AI operates within ethical boundaries and contributes positively to the common good.
A comprehensive approach is necessary, one that protects free speech while empowering users to identify and address bias and harmful content. Initially, efforts should focus on detecting and analyzing disinformation, biases, discrimination, hate speech, and deepfakes. Sophisticated tools leveraging machine learning and natural language processing techniques can be developed to identify and scrutinize harmful content in real-time. These tools should be tested with diverse user groups to safeguard free speech.
Furthermore, AI’s proactive engagement with misinformation can play a vital role in shaping public discourse. By actively countering falsehoods and promoting accurate information, AI-powered tools have the potential to guide conversations toward truthfulness and mitigate the spread of misinformation. This proactive approach not only limits the dissemination of harmful narratives but also fosters a culture of accountability and accuracy in digital spaces, enhancing public trust in AI’s ability to combat misinformation.
In addition to detection and engagement, the implementation of automated reporting systems is crucial in safeguarding democratic institutions from threats posed by state or terrorist-backed actors. These AI-powered systems can swiftly identify and flag harmful content to hosting platforms, enabling timely intervention and moderation. Streamlining the reporting process allows platforms to respond effectively, preserving the integrity of online discourse.
Transparency tools are also essential in building user trust and facilitating informed decision-making. By offering insights into the origins, legitimacy, and credibility of digital content, these tools empower individuals to navigate the digital landscape with discernment. From tracking sources to verifying links and fact-checking, transparency tools enable users to critically evaluate information and contribute to a safer online environment.
AI presents both opportunities and risks for democracy. It is imperative to ensure that AI aligns with our shared values to strengthen democratic institutions and uphold the highest standards of ethics and transparency. By prioritizing inclusivity, fairness, and accountability, we can harness AI’s potential to bolster resilience, safety, and trust in our democratic systems.
