Oxford YASA Motors gets funding

After a number of months of planning and fund raising, Oxford YASA Motors has received funding to spin-out of the Univeristy of Oxford.  The initial project started with the Morgan LifeCar and has resulted in a new high torque density motor, very much suited to the new requirements of electric/hybrid vehicles.  The author was part of the team that planned and pitched the business to a number of investors and finally secured the funding recently.

There will doubtless be many new ideas that are generated off the back of this high torque density motors: perhaps with motorsports leading the way.
