And electric systems are more efficient than their internal combustion counterparts. “An electric motor is built for this. It’s efficient at every RPM, full torque at zero RPM, right when it starts up. This is exactly what electric motors are good at” says Andy Rebele, founder and CEO of Pure Watercraft.Watch the video to learn about how the electric vehicle revolution is taking shape in the world of boating.
