CAGR for 2018 to 2023 projected at 37%
Electric vehicle penetration to be 10-12 percent by 2025.
Internal combustion engines have energy conversion rate of nearly 20% whereas electric vehicle have efficiency of around 80%.
With battery power still low, range of an electric vehicle can be increased by increasing the efficiency of the motor.
Brushless DC motors have efficiency higher than conventional motors, which increases the range.
