Torqeedo to Roll-out New Electric Boating Products
Torqeedo says it will display its new products for electric mobility with Torqeedo’s 2019 innovations and its full line of electric boating products in a forthcoming boat show.
The makers of electric motors and hybrid drive systems will display new 100 kW motors as part of their fully integrated Deep Blue and Deep Blue Hybrid drive systems at Salon Nautique International, Paris.
Twice as powerful as were previously available, these quiet, clean and low-maintenance electric drive systems are available in two versions: low-rpm for displacement boats and high-rpm for planing boats.
Torqeedo will also display an upgraded, higher-capacity battery for their most powerful electric drive systems: the new Deep Blue 40 kWh battery with technology by BMW i. It features more than 30% more capacity in the same footprint and an energy density of 144 Wh per kg.
A 30% increase in energy and energy density will also extend to Torqeedo’s 24 V Power batteries which will feature an impressive energy density of 138 Wh per kg in 2019. The new pack tips the scales at just 25.3 kg, only 800 grams more than the prior model, and in the exact same footprint.
2019 will also see a new direct-drive, 1,100 W addition to the globally successful Travel series of clean, emission-free outboards. The Travel 1103 C is the quietest motor in its class and boasts a heavy-duty design. Just like the market-favourite Travel 1003, which remains the lightest and easiest-to-handle 3 HP equivalent outboard, the new 1103 C is suitable for boats up to 1,500 kg.
Torqeedo’s lightest outboard delivers hands-free kayak fishing, making it the preferred choice of professional anglers for years now. 2019’s Ultralight 403 A offers a host of practical new features, including easy mounting, quick motor depth adjustment and a lightning-fast way to safely stow the motor for transport or remove it altogether.
