Evolito Limited, a privately-owned company developing and manufacturing electric motors and powertrains for aerospace applications, has today announced former YASA CEO, Dr. Chris Harris, is joining the company as CEO.
As detailed in the press release “Evolito was spun out in July 2021 by YASA (a pioneer of next-generation axial-flux electric motors and controllers for automotive, acquired by Mercedes-Benz in August 2021) to exclusively commercialise YASA’s electric motor technology and IP for the rapidly-growing electric aerospace market.
“Following 15 years’ experience building and leading high-tech, high-growth businesses in the UK, Europe and US, Dr. Chris Harris joined YASA in 2012. He scaled the company from 20 employees to more than 300, raising significant investment and winning OEM series production contracts from companies including Ferrari.
“Evolito’s ultra high-performance, super low-weight next-generation axial-flux electric motors are smaller, lighter and more robust than any other competing technology, opening up a range of new opportunities for manned Electric Vertical Take-off and Landing (eVTOL) craft, and electric fixed-wing applications. Following Evolito’s acquisition of UK battery company Electroflight in July 2022, Evolito can now offer aerospace OEM & eVTOL customers fully-electric powertrain solutions, incorporating its next-generation axial-flux electric motors, power electronics and batteries.”
