ePropulsion U.S. SalesePropulsion, a global leader and market challenger in marine electric propulsion systems and services, announced today tremendous growth in sales in the U.S. market. Driven by their model year 2021 product launch in January and an intense focus on expanding their dealer network, ePropulsion has grown its U.S. dealer network by 60% in 2021. This combined with an interest by the boating public in ePropulsion and renewable and sustainable electric propulsion has resulted in year-over-year sales increase for all ePropulsion motors of over 200% and sales of the Spirit series has quadrupled.

“We are thrilled by the increased interest in our motors both by consumers and OEMs,” said Danny Tao, co-founder and CEO of ePropulsion. “With the injection of recently acquired funding and a number of new products we have in development to be released in the coming years, we are confident that our growth will continue throughout next year."

“This was a banner year for ePropulsion,” said Chris Ponnwitz, electric market manager, Mack Boring & Parts Company, ePropulsion’s distributor partner in the U.S. “We had an incredible launch of our new product line at the beginning of the year. The meetings we had, both with consumers and partners at shows like the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show were valuable and exciting. Our year-end projections put this as the best year yet for U.S. sales and to support this outstanding growth, we plan on doubling our sales and service network in 2022.”

2022 is set to be an exciting year for ePropulsion, which celebrates its 10-year anniversary and the launch of its new vision to empower people with clean and intelligent technology that reconnects them with the aquatic environment, in tandem with its clear new mission to spearhead the coming electric and intelligent boating revolution. An innovator in electric outboard propulsion, ePropulsion’s latest range of products, launched earlier this year, include the Spirit 1.0 Evo, Navy 3.0 Evo and Navy 6.0 Evo models; an evolution of its established product lines that now include hydrogeneration capabilities. In addition, ePropulsion also created a 9.9HP Pod Drive model that has proven popular with sailboats and small watercraft.
