Groupe Beneteau launches a partnership with Vision Marine Technologies to develop and market 100% electric outboard-equipped boats – Yahoo Finance

MONTREAL, July 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Groupe Beneteau, a global market leader in recreational boating, and Vision Marine Technologies (NASDAQ: VMAR) (“Vision Marine” or the “Company”), the leader in electric transition of the recreational boating industry, have launched a partnership to integrate Vision Marine Technologies’ revolutionary, high-power outboard motors onboard several models across Groupe Beneteau’s brand portfolio.

Innovation is a keystone of Groupe Beneteau’s heritage, shaping trends in boating for over 130 years. Groupe Beneteau was quick to recognize the growing market demand for electric boats and launched in March 2022 the DELPHIA 11 with electric propulsion for boating on inland waterways and lakes. At the Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2021, it had also presented the BENETEAU Oceanis 30.1 with electric engine and the EXCESS 15 Hybrid. This partnership with Vision Marine Technologies ensures truly game-changing electric propulsion will also be available on outboard boats.
“After the construction and thorough testing of a first, jointly developed prototype in early 2022, the objective is to bring to market a 100% electric boat and propulsion package,” states Erik Stromberg, Power and Motor Yacht Product Director for Groupe Beneteau. Stromberg continues, “The key to electrification is to have a full analysis of the customer use case. Many of the boats in our portfolio fit perfectly with a 100% electric solution. This solution is complementary and fully compatible with our other propulsion packages.”
The groundbreaking Vision Marine E-Motion™ 180 hp powertrain system, boasting battery capacity of 70kWh of continuous power, offers the perfect package for day boating. The initial commercial offering with Groupe Beneteau will be launched under the Four Winns brand, with deliveries expected to be available in spring 2023. The technology will also be rolled out by other brands within Groupe Beneteau, both in North America and Europe.
“We have always held Groupe Beneteau in high esteem and acknowledge the company’s long-standing mandate for leadership and excellence within the boating industry. We are honored to have the opportunity to power the Four Winns boat with our E-Motion™ 180E technology and look forward to a long-standing partnership with them. We continue to showcase our technology and rig the E-Motion™ powertrain on numerous third-party boats in order to formally move towards scaled production of our E-Motion™ technology for commercial usage,” stated Alexandre Mongeon, co-founder & CEO of Vision Marine.
“Our high-end technology adapted from the state of the art automotive market is the driver of our partnership with Groupe Beneteau. The E-Motion™ propulsion system is not only a motor and a high voltage battery, but also a fully optimized powertrain system designed to increase performance and reduce maintenance. We have worked hard with McLaren Engineering and its parent company Linamar Corp. to design a very secure and easy to use system. This will change the way consumers go boating,” stated Xavier Montagne, COO of Vision Marine.
