“Time for a change” with up to $488 cashback to upgrade to electric

Torqeedo releases promotion to support the transition to sustainable boating.


Torqeedo, the global market leader for electric mobility on the water, is calling on boat owners to exchange their old combustion engines for Travel series electric outboards as part of their "Time for a change” campaign.

With the “Time for a change” campaign Torqeedo aims to encourage the phase-out of small fossil fuel-powered outboards, which pollute the air and water. To accelerate the transition to more sustainable boating, the company is offering up to $488 (equivalent to 300€) cashback on Travel 1103 and 603 motors for a limited time.

“Today, Travel motors are a common sight in most marinas because they’re lightweight, reliable, low-maintenance and easy to use. In fact, we often hear that the Travel was a boater’s first experience with e-mobility, long before they ever drove an electric car,” said Fabian Bez, CEO of Torqeedo GmbH. “Our goal with the “Time for a change” campaign is to enable even more boaters to experience the joy of clean, quiet, and emission-free boating. It’s just a better way to get out on the water.”

Recognisable by their iconic orange propellers, Torqeedo’s Travel motors have been transforming how people spend their time on the water for almost 18 years. As recently reviewed in Yacht, Travel motors power dinghies, daysailers and inflatables with up to three horsepower-equivalent and a range of up to 74 kilometres, depending on speed. Travel motors are safe and easy to use, and ship with an integrated lithium battery, onboard computer with GPS, and mains charger. A full suite of accessories is also available, including solar chargers, spare batteries, stylish bag sets, and a handy smartphone app.
