Somerset, NJ – ePropulsion, the global leader in marine electric propulsion systems and services, is proud to announce the global launch of its latest innovation, the eLite electric outboard motor. This groundbreaking new product will be showcased at boot Düsseldorf, the world’s largest indoor boat and watersports show, taking place from January 20 – 28, 2024.
The eLite, which has been created for the tender and smaller boating market, represents a new era in clean, quiet, and eco-friendly marine propulsion. The direct-drive motor and advanced design propeller deliver high efficiency with near-silent operation. With a focus on minimal maintenance and cutting-edge technology, this addition to the ePropulsion range raises the bar in electric boating standards.
“We are excited to start the year by introducing the eLite electric outboard motor, a game-changer in marine propulsion,” said Danny Tao, Co-founder and CEO of ePropulsion. “With its innovative features and commitment to sustainability, we believe the eLite will redefine the eco boating experience for enthusiasts worldwide and we are looking forward to showcasing it to visitors at this year’s show and beyond.”
Designed to be the most compact and lightweight electric outboard in its class, the ePropulsion eLite 500W electric outboard is an easy-to-use alternative to small internal combustion engines. Sport mode adds an additional 50% boost in power for challenging conditions bringing the top speed to over 5 miles per hour. With multiple charging options, including 110/220V AC, 12V DC and solar with the use of optional ePropulsion converters, it can be fully charged in around four hours. For added capability and convenience, the eLite includes a USB-C output that allows users to charge and power other electrical devices.
At just under three-feet in length and weighing 14.7-pounds including the built-in battery, the eLite stores easily and the one-click quick-release bracket allows for installation and removal in a matter of seconds. The tiller handle converts to a perfectly balanced carry handle. With multiple trim and tilt angles, adjustable steering resistance and shaft length, and a shallow-water mode, the eLite is completely customizable. Its Smart Battery Monitoring System (BMS) efficiently optimizes performance, carefully regulating battery level, temperature, and remaining State-of-Charge all displayed on an ultra-simple interface, leading to extended range, a more energy-efficient operation and longer battery life. Built to last, it is IP67 waterproof, and is constructed of aviation-grade aluminum alloy for lighter weight and greater durability. In addition, the anti-ground auto kick-up feature protects the motor from accidental damage. Available for just under $1,000, it is also the most affordable electric outboard in its class.
