Torqeedo offers €300 cashback to upgrade to electric outboards

Marine electric drive manufacturer, Torqeedo, is calling on boat owners to exchange their old combustion engines for Travel series electric outboards with a cash inventive.

Marine electric drive manufacturer, Torqeedo, is calling on boat owners to exchange their old combustion engines for Travel series electric outboards with a cashback incentive.

As part of a new campaign, the German firm is offering €300 cashback on Travel 1103 and 603 motors for a limited time.

The firm, which opened a new Munich headquarters last year, says it hopes to accelerate the phase-out of small fossil fuel-powered outboards, which pollute the air and water.

“Today, Travel motors are a common sight in most marinas because they’re lightweight, reliable, low-maintenance and easy to use,” says Fabian Bez, CEO of Torqeedo. “In fact, we often hear that the Travel was a boater’s first experience with e-mobility, long before they ever drove an electric car.

“Our goal with the ‘Time for a Change’ campaign is to enable even more boaters to experience the joy of clean, quiet, and emission-free boating. It’s just a better way to get out on the water.”

Torqeedo has been producing its Travel motors for almost 18 years. Torqeedo says the motors can power dinghies, daysailers and inflatables with up to three horsepower-equivalent and a range of up to 74 kilometres, depending on speed.

In May this year, Torqeedo also more-than doubled the warranty on its Travel motors from two years to five years.
