Our Mission

To electrify transportation by creating cost-effective and scalable propulsion solutions.

Founded in 2017, Duxion Motors Inc. is an advanced motor design and manufacturing company developing high power density electric propulsion systems for aviation and marine industries.


Our engineers have developed powerful scalable electric drives that accelerate the transition to emission free electric transportation. Our patented eJet™ Motor enables jet owners and OEMs to hybridize or fully electrify their existing fleets more quickly and economically.

Our Focus

The automotive industry has made major strides towards the goal of sustainable transportation, while the aviation industry lags behind. One of the major limitations causing this lag is a lack of high power, lightweight electric propulsion.

Duxion solves this problem with next generation hybrid and full electric propulsion systems which have a wide range of applications, including:

  • Jet Aircraft

  • Large Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

  • Vertical Takeoff and Landing Aircraft (VTOL)

  • Marine Vessels

Our Values

We’re more than just motors — we’re the rebirth of electric transportation.

Integrity: Doing the right thing
Innovation: Pushing boundaries
Advancement: Expanding electric travel solutions
Stewardship: Protecting the environment
Respect: Treating others how we would like to be treated
Our Goals
Reduce Fuel Consumption
Reduce Maintenance Costs
Slash Emissions
Improve Reliability
