Market leader in the fast-growing electric propulsion industry, Torqeedo, announces the introduction of the Travel 1003 C, a development of its popular Travel 1003 motor series.
The Travel 1003 C is a new version of Torqeedo’s bestselling electric outboard, now with extended range and runtime, along with an integrated lithium battery. Torqeedo’s new Travel 1003 C boasts a 915Wh battery, which has 73 per cent greater battery capacity compared to the standard Travel 1003, at an almost-identical weight.
Torqeedo’s Travel 1003 models offer the same performance as 3HP petrol outboard motors, with the thrust equivalent of a 4HP motor. The Travel range is designed for small boats, dinghies and daysailers up to 1.5 tons, and has tens of thousands of motors in use around the globe. With a total weight of just 14.9kg, including the integrated lithium battery, the Travel 1003 C is the lightest and most efficient electric outboard in its class on the market.
As standard, the Travel 1003 C comes with a GPS system, a digital readout that displays power consumption, battery status and remaining range (displayed in either time or distance), and a convenient USB socket for charging a phone or powering a light whilst out on the water.
Users can download Torqeedo’s innovative TorqTrac smartphone application for use with the new Travel 1003 C. When combined with Torqeedo’s Bluetooth TorqTrac adaptor, the TorqTrac app displays all motor information on a smartphone or similar device, and allows you to plan your trip in advance and share your position on a map with an estimated time of arrival. Torqeedo also offers a range of innovative accessories for its entire range of motors, including handy travel bags for the engine and battery, and a foldable solar panel for convenient, environmentally friendly charging on the go.
The new Travel 1003 C is available for the 2017 boating season with a standard and long shaft version, and is priced from £1,699.00.
