I'm sure that's an "artist rendition" of what their idea is so I wouldn't say they're here.
An all electric boat that could last all day in most conditions and be able to charge up overnight with no fancy stations sure would be nice.

Standard equipment includes a paddle and distress signal flag to flag down other boaters for a tow back to the ramp .

Evidently they're real and the motor is equivalent to a 50 hp outboard will set you back only $16.5K for the motor, battery, and charger. Probably get stuck paying $1500 in sales tax as well.
Says you will get about a 20 mile range. If you want an additional battery to double your range then that's an additional $8500.
They say the demand is high so get your pre-order in. lol
I bet they won't be in business in 2 years.

He's sponsored by them so that doesn't mean much. I wonder how often he uses his electric boat versus his gas powered boats?
An electric outboard at that price and range doesn't make sense right now if ever. The only way it works is if the government restricts our choices and freedoms to the point its the only choice.

Don’t Pooh-Pooh Electric outboards motors they are right in CARB wheelhouse.
50hp can be doubled easily with electric power and closer to what bass boaters are looking for.
The price is always high initially but not crazy considering it’s for a turn key system. GM funding expansion means this isn’t going away soon.

Now that Hunter has helped the Chinese to buy a 3.8 billion dollar rare earth mine in Africa one really has to admit that we are seriously stupid in this country if we can't see that the only ones going "green" without keeping their energy independence also will be slaves to those who actually have the resources to make these none renewable batteries. Notice the Chinese aren't using the resources for themselves other than to make a buck? Walking straight into this trap with our eyes wide shut IMHO....................Let's go Brandon.
The reason the private trucking industry has left Calif. to our shipping problems is our governance concerning these electric trucks now Mandated by the State. Anyone notice Tesla cancelled their building of an electric truck? It's because Tesla did the math and found they would need 100% of the electrical grid in California just to charge them every night. No Tom it won't be here soon as it's pure pie in the sky drivel driven by elected idiots

He's talking about semi trucks not 1/2 ton type trucks.
What's wrong with bringing up whatever topic on a fishing forum? If you don't like it don't read it.

Electric motors for boats are not innovation because there is not one category that it excels in. They're at the bottom of the list in every category except noise and exhaust emissions. With the current lithium technology an electric outboard does not make sense.

Electric only lakes could easily impose a HP limit to keep bigger boats off. I doubt size of the boat is the issue so they would just post a 5mph limit on the lake.

One more step to eliminating boats on the water.
Once it's real it will be electric only. Don't believe their doing you a favor. The marine Manufacturing Association spent plenty to the demands of creati ng a cleaner engine., and it's still not clean enough.
Where is the end point?

Yup, the only thing we can do is buck up and pay through the nose for every aspect of our life or get the hell out of the state. I'm seriously considering the latter someday.......

Without comment on the politics .......
Dont know about the Tracker motor, but this company in Norway has started making a 150 hp electric OB:

$77K for a motor and battery with a 20 mile range. Not to mention no resale value after 10 yrs. :lol: :lol: :lol:
