We’re driven by a shared passion for engineering excellence and sustainable mobility. Our unique technology and proven experience from YASA enables us to fast-track the adoption of electric propulsion in aerospace, accelerating the growth of the electric Urban Air Mobility market and general electric aviation.


The electrification of flight is one of the most exciting market opportunities of our time. Realising this potential will require innovative new technology and an ability to scale to meet the fast-emerging demand. OSE is delighted to be supporting Evolito on its mission to accelerate the adoption of electric flight.

Evolito was spun out earlier this year by YASA, the world-leading pioneer of automotive axial-flux electric motors acquired by Mercedes-Benz in July 2021, to exclusively commercialise YASA’s next-generation electric motor technology and IP for the rapidly-growing aerospace market. Evolito is funded by a portfolio of private investors including WayPoint Capital and Oxford Science Enterprises (OSE).

We bring over a decade of experience in delivering & scaling electric propulsion technology into the EV passenger car market where customisation, quality and cost are critical.

Thanks to our experience supplying the series production automotive market, we know that power density, quality and scalability are critical to the success of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Evolito: Motors for Electric Aircraft

Spirit Of Innovation

We understand the unique demands of the aerospace market. YASA partnered with Rolls-Royce in the ACCEL project to build and fly the world’s fastest electric plane, providing the three axial-flux electric motors that power the Spirit of Innovation aircraft.

Each of the three motors powering the Spirit of Innovation provides 790Nm of peak torque, 200kW peak power. All within an individual axial length of just 98mm. The motor design has been customised to make installation easier and enhance the motors’ mechanical strength and rigidity.

The three motors enable the plane’s propellers to continuously deliver more than 500hp and the blades to spin at a low enough RPM for a stable and almost silent ride, while allowing the aircraft to reach speeds of 300 miles per hour. All this, with greater than 97% energy efficiencies and zero emissions.
