New Torqeedo Ultralight Electric for Kayaks, Canoes
| March 13, 2018

Crystal Lake, IL – The Ultralight 403 C is a new, longer-running model of Torqeedo’s smallest electric outboard with integrated lithium battery. The Ultralight 403 C boasts a 915 Wh battery – 2.85 times more battery capacity compared to the standard Ultralight 403 with 320 Wh battery, while adding just 3.7 lbs to the overall weight.

The Ultralight is designed for kayaks, canoes and very light boats and is proven successful in the field, with thousands of motors in use around the globe. With a total weight of 22 lbs., including the high-capacity lithium battery, the Ultralight 403 C is the most efficient electric outboard for kayaks and canoes on the market – with a top speed of 6 mph and a maximum range of more than 75 miles at 2.6 mph.  

The Ultralight 403 C comes standard with GPS and a digital display that shows real-time power consumption, battery charge status and remaining range (time or distance). A convenient USB socket charges a phone or powers a light or other electronics. The foldable solar panel (accessory) makes the Ultralight 403 C easy to charge in remote locations or even while underway. The optional TorqTrac app displays all motor information on a smartphone or similar device, and allows you to plan your trip in advance and share your position on a map with estimated time of arrival. 

The new Ultralight 403 C is available for the 2018 watersports season.
