Full-Size Electric PWC On The Horizon?

A full-size electric PWC does, however, appear to exist. I just haven't been able to nail down any concrete info on it...but I'll keep trying. What is known is mostly shown on this YouTube video, which reveals what the spokesman claims is an all-electric PWC, capable of speeds over 50 mph, and with a run time of three hours. If that's all true it would be a promising start. Speeds would be in line with the lowest current introductory models, although run times would certainly have to be longer.

Okay, first an apology. My previous post about an electric watercraft referenced more of a toy, not an actual full-size PWC. A full-size electric PWC does, however, appear to exist. I just haven’t been able to nail down any concrete info on it…but I’ll keep trying.

What is known is mostly shown on this YouTube video, which reveals what the spokesman claims is an all-electric PWC, capable of speeds over 50 mph, and with a run time of three hours. If that’s all true it would be a promising start. Speeds would be in line with the lowest current introductory models, although run times would certainly have to be longer.

So what do you think, is this thing a glimpse of the future? The website referenced in the video only hints that something is “coming soon.” Let’s hope a real product backs it up.
