The world market of e-scooter is expected to experiment an increase of 15% in Western Europe between 2015 and 2025. In order to push this growth it is needed to develop new low-cost more efficient and reliable drives with high torque to weight ratio. In this paper a new axial-flux switched reluctance motor is proposed in order to accomplish this goal. The motor is constituted by a stator sandwiched by two rotors in which the ferromagnetic parts are made of soft magnetic composites. It has a new disposition of the stator and the rotor poles and shorter flux paths Simulations have demonstrated that the proposed axial-flux switched reluctance motor drive is able to meet the requirements of an e-scooter.
