Torqeedo displays new electric boating products at boot 2019
Tuesday, January 22, 2019 9:27 AM
Torqeedo is pleased to announce it will display its new products for electric mobility on the water at boot Düsseldorf, the world’s largest watersports and boat show. The show will take place at the Messe Düsseldorf from January 19 through January 27, 2019 with Torqeedo’s full line of electric boating products on display in Hall 10, stand E40.
All credentialed members of the media are invited to join Dr. Christoph Ballin, Chief Executive Officer, Torqeedo GmbH to hear the latest news from Torqeedo and how we continue to advance electric mobility in 2019 and beyond. The press conference will be held in the Torqeedo stand 10E40 on Tuesday, January 22 at 12:00 pm.
After their world premiere in Amsterdam, Torqeedo will display new 100 kW motors in Düsseldorf as part of their fully integrated Deep Blue and Deep Blue Hybrid drive systems. 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 capacity also extends 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.
Several Torqeedo-powered boats will also be on display at boot Düsseldorf including the new Greenline 39 E-drive (stand Hall 17 /A42), the X Shore electric yacht tender (stand Hall 4 /D07)
and the RS21 by RS Sailing (stand Hall 15 /E24). Please visit the Torqeedo stand at Hall 10 booth E40 for information on additional electric boats on display at the show.
