Like it or not, research has proven that the combustion of fossil fuels directly impact our environment. It seems that awareness of the worsening situation has ultimately reached the right people. Elon Musk, for example, stunned even the harshest critics with innovative tech that turned Tesla into a household name. Narke Electrojet plans to be the first to utilize the same concept—as the world’s first mass-produced battery-powered personal watercraft.
We are so accustomed to the familiar growl of a regular engine that the almost-silent hum of an electric motor still catches us by surprise. Not only is its usage environmentally-neutral, but the absence of noise and pollutants also keeps marine life as well as our waters safe. The carbon fiber-reinforced composite structure keeps its sleek frame rigid and durable.
The Narke Electrojet comes with a built-in customizable smart display to monitor your speed and battery status. Normal usage on a full charge delivers up to 1.5 hours of water-carving fun, while the lithium-ion battery quickly recharges up to 80% within 2 hours. Rated at 60 horsepower the electric motor of this two-passenger watercraft can reach speeds of up to 35 mph. With a planned launch sometime in 2018, the company has yet to announce its pricing.
