Electric motorcycles, cars, aircraft… and boats. BMW is supplying German company Torqueedo with its high performance lithium-ion batteries for its electric and hybrid propulsion systems for motorboats from 1 to 160hp.
“We see the decision by Torqeedo to use BMW i high-voltage batteries for their Deep Blue propulsion system as further evidence that we can build the drive systems of the future without any need for compromise on performance, innovation and sustainability,” said BMW’s Dr Alexander Kotouc.
BMW Group develops and assembles high-voltage batteries for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in-house. The lithium-ion battery created for the BMW i3 comprises eight modules, each containing 12 cells. The connectors, cables, monitoring sensors and heating and cooling system have also been developed specifically for BMW i.
