The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued 12 batches of 'Recommended Vehicle Catalogs for the Promotion and Application of New Energy Vehicles', and 3,233 models from 224 companies were selected. According to the statistics of the electric vehicle resource network, there are more than 200 companies providing motor supporting for the above recommended Purifier motor factory catalogue models, and the competition is fierce. What is the core competitiveness of new energy automobile motor companies? Where are the gaps between domestic motor technology and foreign countries? What is the development trend of new energy vehicle motors in the future? This article will analyze the above issues. What is the core competitiveness of new energy automobile motor companies? Professor Luo Jian, the CTO of Shanghai Lixin Electric and a special expert of the National Thousand Talents Plan, believes that the core competitiveness of new energy automobile motor companies is talent and stable team. Luo Jian said in an interview with the electric vehicle resource network reporter that competition in the 21st century is competition in science and technology and talent, and this is also true in the new energy vehicle industry. Electric Vehicle Resources Network learned that in 2017, the sales of Shanghai Lixin Electric exceeded 10,000 units for the first time, and the sales exceeded the 200 million mark. Professor Luo Jian believes that the achievement is inseparable from the company's talent distribution. According to Luo Jian, there are currently close to 100 R \\u0026 D personnel in Shanghai Lixin Electric, of which doctoral and graduate degrees account for more than 40% of the R \\u0026 D personnel. The research and development backbone has more than ten years of work experience in the new energy automotive industry, and the research and development team is very stable. In addition, the executives of Shanghai Lixin Electric all hold company shares, which hold 20% of the company's shares, allowing employees to start businesses on the company's platform. The author believes that products developed in such an environment must be competitive. With the rapid development of science and technology, how to keep the competitive advantage from being eliminated? Chen Quanshi, director of the Tsinghua University Automotive Research Institute and deputy director of the State Key Laboratory of Automotive Safety and Energy, stated at the first China (Chengdu) New Energy Vehicle Summit in 2018 that if companies want to survive and thrive after the government subsidies have subsided, There must be three conditions: one is to have its own intellectual property rights in key technologies in the field of new energy vehicles, the other is to be able to develop products that are marketable in the market, and the third is to have strong financial operating capabilities. In this regard, Professor Luo Jian agreed, and stated that in 2017, Shanghai Lixin Electric signed a strategic investment agreement with Yongda Group, and the capital investment of Yongda Group will further help Shanghai Lixin Electric in talent reserves, product research and development, manufacturing, etc. Investment in this area is better protected. According to Luo Jian, it is expected that in the middle of 2018, Shanghai Lixin Electric will have an annual output of 200,000 sets of motors and a fully automatic production line for electronic control. Where is the gap between domestic motor technology and foreign countries? With the development of technology in recent years, the technical indicators of passenger car drive motors of domestic motor suppliers have continued to be internationally advanced, and the technical indicators of commercial vehicle drive motors have maintained international leadership. Motor controller indicators are rapidly catching up with similar foreign products. Where is the gap between domestic motor technology and foreign countries? Luo Jian told the reporter of Electric Vehicle Resources Network that the gap between domestic motor technology level and foreign countries is mainly reflected in basic materials. In terms of motors, domestic silicon steel, neodymium-iron-boron, and bearing technologies lag behind international standards; in terms of controllers, mainly wafer technology has gaps with foreign countries. Luo Jian also said that with the rapid development of the new energy vehicle industry in recent years, China has become the largest market for electric vehicles in the world, and basic scientific research has also been increased in China. For example, the Institute of Electrical Engineering and Shanghai Dao Development have developed a full SIC module, and The controller designed with a power density of 40kW \/ L represents the highest level of SIC in China. What is the development trend of new energy vehicle motors in the future? First, the market for new energy vehicle motors is huge. According to data from the China Automobile Association, China produced 517,000 new energy vehicles in 2016 and 794,000 in 2017. It is expected to exceed 1 million in 2018 and 2 million in 2020. From the above data, it can be seen that in the next few years, the new energy vehicle motor market is large enough. Second, multiple cooperation models will coexist. At present, the new energy vehicle industry continues to heat up. Restrictions on national fuel consumption regulations in 2020 will prompt China's OEMs to increase investment in the drive motor industry and achieve mastery of the drive motor industry through independent design or joint ventures. At the same time, in order to further stabilize the market share, traditional drive motor companies (such as Jingjin, Ocean Motor, etc.) will increase their investment in powertrains, improve the powertrain integrated design and control capabilities, and increase powertrain sales Sales. Therefore, the new energy vehicle motor industry will present a co-existing development trend. Third, the manufacturing model has shifted to a single product in large quantities, reducing costs. Since 2016, the state has accelerated the decline of subsidies for new energy vehicles, prompting OEMs to reduce component procurement costs. From the perspective of the needs of foreign passenger companies, the target cost of electric drive systems for passenger cars after 2020 is extremely low, even lower than the current purchase cost of similar domestic products on sale. In order to adapt to the market, new energy automobile motor companies will switch from a flexible manufacturing model with multiple varieties and small batches to a single product large batch manufacturing model, and invest in automated production lines to reduce product costs.
