Plenty of power, no petrol. With the new Cruise T, Torqeedo signals the launch of the next generation of modern electric outboards.
Perfect for dinghies, motorboats and yachts up to 4 tons, the new tiller-controlled Cruise T outboard has been completely reworked for the new season – and now runs even better than ever. And with it, Torqeedo has increased its lead in the development of innovative high-tech outboards even further.
When the new generation tiller-controlled electric outboards get underway, you’d better hold on! Faster, more powerful and better looking than ever – equivalent to 8 PS (max. speed: 12 knots or 23 km/h) – the new Cruise 4.0 T gets motorboats on the plane and propels yachts up to 4 tons comfortably out of the harbour.
Unlike their predecessors, the new compact Cruise 2.0 T and 4.0 T outboards – like all other Torqeedo products, by the way – are now fully protected against complete immersion (IP 67) and are ideally suited for saltwater cruising.
As with all other Torqeedo outboards, both new Cruise motors are, in addition, now equipped with on-board computers. Founder and managing director Dr. Christoph Ballin says of the improvement, “It’s only logical that we extend this unique feature to the complete range. The new Cruise T’s tiller display provides continuous information about battery charge status, speed over the ground, input power and – most importantly – remaining range. So you can be sure, when you’re underway, that you’ll get to where you want.”
Furthermore, both Cruise models can also claim superior overall efficiency: the Cruise gets more range from a battery bank than any other outboard. And despite its power, remains a lightweight – the 2.0 T short shaft model weighs just 17.5 kg, the 4.0 T short shaft version 18.3 kg. But weight isn’t the only indicator for easy handling and convenience; thanks to the supplied cable set with fuse and main switch, once on board it’s simply a case of connect and go!
Depending on the model, the high tech outboards require either one or two Power 26-104 series lithium batteries, which Torqeedo also supplies. Alternatively, the outboards can also be powered with AGM or lead acid batteries.
