Emphasis during the new e-motor's development was placed on thermal management-chiefly, gaining efficiency via reduction of thermal resistance, particularly concerning the inverter's metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET). Ricardo revealed its solution is based on the use of direct oil cooling of the heat sink, using the same automatic transmission fluid used to cool the emotor itself.
