Why we exist
The global trend towards electric mobility is driven by facts: the world is facing a warming climate, an ever-growing population and increasing energy consumption in the transportation sector. Climate experts s
ay we must reduce our greenhouse emissions by 45% over the next 10 years to avoid the most harmful impacts of climate change, injecting a sense of urgency into the transition to climate-neutral mobility. One clear path forward is to reduce the carbon footprint of electricity production through solar, wind and hydropower. Then, wherever possible, electrify transportation.
The technology for electric mobility on the water is here. Torqeedo focuses on the segments in which emission-free and hybrid drives are competitive today, while building on our institutional knowledge to develop the products which will power our climate-friendly future.
We estimate that today’s global market share of electric boat drives is approximately 2% – similar to the overall market share of electric cars. On protected lakes, electric drives make up most of the market because combustion engines are limited or banned. But just as on land, where approximately 13% of new buses are electric, electric drives are also competitive in segments without these
regulations – and they are succeeding. Many dinghies and sailboats have already given up fossil fuels for electric drives, and ferries and motorboats, especially in cities, are going electric to avoid harmful local emissions and to lower the overall carbon footprint. Larger yachts are now being powered by hybrid-electric drives.
We are at the forefront of this development.
The Torqeedo profle
