Quote>"Mercedes has acquired a British electric motor start-up as the German carmaker seeks to strengthen its technology with the aim of being ready to sell only battery-powered vehicles by the end of the decade.
Yasa, spun out of Oxford university in 2009, manufactures next-generation electric motors for performance cars, and counts Ferrari and other supercar brands among its customers."
Actually Koenigsegg too for the Regera. It didn't half get on my nerves when people incorrectly stated Rimac hybrid when they manufactured the T shaped battery NOT the electric motors.
Anyway this is HUGE news. Mercedes already stated they will not be pursuing any new hybrid research and development for their production cars.
A deadly serious move.
