Marine engines are inefficient and contribute a great deal to global emissions. Despite being a major contributor of toxic emissions, the marine industry faces fewer stringent EPA regulations.
The team is developing emission-free, electric outboard boat motors. They will offer a line of fully-electric outboard marine motors ranging from 5hp to 100hp. The main design goal is to build an outboard that is light, efficient, reliable, and safe.

The target will be medium- and large-sized canoes and rowboats, as well as small pleasure boats and hydroplanes. Develop and build a fully-integrated, 18 kWh Lithium-ion energy storage system to power the first prototype electric outboard motor.
