Images Of The Twin Vee 240 CC Electric
Now we have seen some first early images of the new 2022 Twin Vee PowerCat 240 CC Electric power catamaran on the builder's website - and it looks very promising! This fully-electric center console catamaran boat is intended to be a solid day cruiser. She marks an early prototype for the company in the new line, creating a version of the builder's popular 24-foot center console power catamaran that is typically powered with twin 150hp outboard motors.
The 240 CC Electric was designed and built for mass appeal and caters to a growing demand for sustainable, environmentally-friendly electric and alternative fuel commercial and recreational vehicles. The Company plans to build off the intended success of its first electric model. Additional models will be designed and added to the Company’s model mix and marketed and sold through Twin Vee’s existing network of dealers.
Electra Power Sports: Electric Propulsion Systems For The Masses
Beyond building their own proprietary electric-powered boats, the company has also introduced a new division of its business called Electra Power Sports that is building electric propulsion systems - i.e. electric outboard motors - that will be available for other manufacturers use, in addition to being offered on Twin Vee models.
These motors will be available to a wide variety of boat builders, boat dealers and boat owners seeking to power or re-power their boats with a fully electric outboard propulsion system as an alternative to gas-burning engines. The Company has hired several mechanical, electrical and battery engineers to design clean energy, alternative fuel propulsion system for boats requiring an outboard solution for propulsion.
