LONGMONT, Colo. -- January 22, 2013
UQM Technologies, Inc. (NYSE MKT: UQM) electric motors and controllers are at
the heart of the new Regen Nautic E180 all-electric outboard motor introduced
this week at the Dusseldorf Boat Show. This is in addition to series-hybrid
electric systems that Regen Nautic has developed for yachts, trawlers, and
sailboats over 50 feet using UQM^® components.
“Working with Regen Nautic, we continue to expand the marine applications for
our electric propulsion products,” said Eric R. Ridenour, President and Chief
Executive Officer of UQM Technologies, Inc. “Our systems are ideally suited
for marine applications which require exceptional performance, whether used in
all-electric or series-hybrid propulsion systems.”
The E180 uses a UQM PowerPhase Select^® 145 electric motor and controller
system, mounting them inside a traditional-looking outboard motor package.
Regen Nautic says that the E180 has power-output equivalent to a
180-horsepower gas-powered outboard motor. The system is controlled via an
easy-to-use push-button interface at the helm station created by Regen Nautic.
“The E180 electric system mounts and operates much like a traditional outboard
motor,” said Pierre Caouette, ReGen Nautic President and Chief Operating
Officer. “This provides a viable option for those wanting electric power to
significantly reduce operating costs, as well as remove their carbon footprint
The Regen Nautic E180 will be on display at the Dusseldorf Boat Show,
happening now through January 27, 2013.
