“We see the decision by Torqeedo to use BMW i high-voltage batteries for their Deep Blue propulsion system as further evidence that we can build the drive systems of the future without any need for compromise on performance, innovation and sustainability,” explains Dr. Alexander Kotouc, head of product management for BMW i.

The co-founder and CEO of Torqeedo goes on to say, ”The BMW i high-voltage batteries are a model of extraordinary reliability and performance for electric mobility.” He continues, “They allow us to deliver state-of-the-art electric propulsion technology and integrated energy management for leisure craft and commercial marine applications.” The i3 batteries will soon be operating in many other water vehicles as well, including sailing yachts and commercial marine applications.
