- Electric mobility on the water -
What with a steadily growing population, global warming and increasing energy consumption in the transport sector with limited oil reserves, there are several good reasons for the global trend towards electric mobility. If we are to prevent the worst possible damage from climate change, we must reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 45% within the next 11 years.
The use of petrol and diesel engines on Lake Starnberg is extermely limited. This prompted the managing directors of Torqeedo Germany, Dr. Christoph Ballin and Dr. Friedrich Böbel, to take a closer look at the topic of electric boat drives in 2004. The idea of an electric motor for use on Lake Starnberg gave rise to the Torqeedo brand.
Since its foundation in 2005, Torqeedo has set many standards and established itself as a pioneer in the field of electric mobility on water. More than 200 employees work at the electric motor manufacturer near Munich in the areas of design, electronic development, software programming, purchasing, production, marketing, controlling, sales, service and management, to ensure the success of Torqeedo electric outboards. With success: over 100,000 boat owners have already chosen a Torqeedo boat motor. The motors are most commonly used on protected lakes.
Since 2017, Torqeedo has been part of the DEUTZ group, a leading global manufacturer of innovative drive systems. The electric motor manufacturer from Starnberg is present in over 100 countries and cooperates with more than 2,000 sales, service and boat building partners.
Torqeedo not only wants to be successful as a company, but also to make a difference. The manufacturer is committed to sustainability, superior technology and groundbreaking innovations. After all, Torqeedo outboards do not produce any emissions and there is no risk of water contamination due to refuelling or leaking cooling pipes. And thanks to their lightweight design, the engines are also produced in a way that conserves resources and protects the climate. Still not convinced? We will be happy to advise you on your Torqeedo purchase.
