Torqeedo launches long-lasting electric outboard
Torqeedo has launched a new model of its smallest electric outboard with integrated lithium battery and almost three times the range and run time.
Designed for kayaks, canoes and very light boats, the Ultralight 403 C boasts a 915Wh battery – 2.85 times the battery capacity compared to the standard Ultralight 403 with 320Wh battery, while adding just 1.7kg to the overall weight of less than 11kg.
With a top speed of 9.8km/h and a maximum range of more than 100km at slow speed, Christoph Ballin, CEO of Torqeedo, commented: “Paddlers love the Ultralight 403 and the amount of water it allows you to cover, whether you’re fishing or exploring remote areas where larger boats can’t go. The Ultralight offers increased safety and allows enthusiasts of all skill levels or physical abilities to travel together and have more fun on the water.”
GPS as standard
The Ultralight 403 C comes standard with GPS and a digital display that shows real-time power consumption, battery charge status and remaining range (time or distance).
A USB socket charges a phone or powers a light or other electronics and the foldable solar panel accessory also makes the Ultralight 403 C easy to charge in remote locations or while underway.
The optional TorqTrac app displays all motor information on a smartphone or similar device and allows advance planning of trips and position sharing on a map with estimated time of arrival.
