Torqeedo Advances Sustainable Boating with New Products for 2018

Crystal Lake, Ill. – Nov. 14, 2017 – Electric mobility solutions are gaining widespread acceptance in the automotive markets and in all other transportation sectors, including the marine market. “Offering sustainable products that deliver a superior value over conventional combustion engines has always been Torqeedo’s core. We continue this tradition in 2018,” Torqeedo CEO Christoph Ballin said on the occasion of the first presentation of the product innovations at METS Amsterdam 2017, the world's largest trade fair for marine equipment.

The new 48V battery, Power 48-5000, makes the use of AGM or gel batteries for electric mobility obsolete. Due to its long service life and eight-year capacity warranty, it provides the ultimate cost-effective lithium battery supply for electric motors up to 10 kW and for all electrical loads onboard. It also features unparalleled energy density and superior safety.
Deep Blue, Torqeedo‘s award-winning 40- and 80-horsepower propulsion system, is the cornerstone of powerful electric mobility – from the tried-and-true plug-in electric to the highly customizable hybrid solution that provides complete energy management onboard. With the new BMW i8 high-power battery, boats with limited space can now take advantage of state-of-the-art automobile battery technology and the highest energy density available in the marine market.
The new Ultralight 403 A models offer an advanced mount, providing quick and convenient mounting options for fishing kayaks and improved maneuverability.
The Cruise Pod propulsion system, which has won worldwide acclaim since its introduction in 2016, delivers lightweight and economical electric propulsion for sailboats up to 20 horsepower equivalent power. With the new Cruise 10.0 FP Saildrive Mount it has become even easier to refit from a diesel saildrive to clean, lightweight electric propulsion using the existing saildrive mounting points.
At the METS Amsterdam, which starts today, Torqeedo is exhibiting at booth no. 01.741.
