Advanced Electric Machines

AEM deliver the most sustainable electric powertrain technologies in the world

Advanced Electric Machines are a first for the Specialist Vehicle Association as they are at the cutting edge of EV technology.

Our reason for making AEM not only a trade member, but an Official Founder Partner to the SVA is that ‘Sustainability’ is at the core of every classic and modern collectible car ever built. Even the earliest cars went on to be re-used and re-cycled for many years right up to this day, AEM understand and embrace that same sustainability.

The AEM Mission

AEM will design and build the most sustainable electric motors on the planet, supplying them around the globe from our facilities in the UK. Fully electric, hybrid and electric conversions for existing ICE cars all factor into what we do, because AEM understands the importance of automotive manufacturing and works to embrace all aspects for a better and safer world.

The Vision

Electrification is key to addressing climate change only if the technologies developed are more sustainable to manufacture, use and recycle those they replace. Leading manufacturers such as VW-Bentley understand this and have worked closely with us to deliver our vision of the automotive future.

AEM will utilise our partnerships and expertise in materials, manufacturing and design, to ensure every product we develop delivers a more cost effective, higher performing and greener solution for all our target sectors.
