Vision Marine E-Motion 180E Electric Propulsion System

Nov 28, 2023

Vision Marine Technologies Inc., a global leader and innovator within the performance electric recreational boating industry, is pleased to announce that it has received an initial purchase order from Wired Pontoons (“Wired”) for 25 units of the E-Motion™ 180E outboard and powertrain systems.

This order marks the beginning of a transformative partnership, with Wired set to equip its pontoons with these 180 HP electric propulsion systems, responding to the growing marine consumer demand for electric marine propulsion.
“We are excited to collaborate with Vision Marine, starting with an order of 25 E-Motion™ systems. Over the past 12 months, we’ve seen a decline in the demand for Internal Combustion Engine pontoons, with our customers increasingly seeking eco-friendly alternatives. After evaluating various options, we found the E-Motion™ system to be the ideal fit for our clientele,” commented Curt Jensen, Wired’s President.

Over the past year, Wired has extensively tested the performance of its pontoons equipped with Vision Marine’s systems. The positive feedback from boat show attendees and robust performance data have strengthened Wired’s confidence in the E-Motion™ system as a game-changing solution in the recreational boating landscape, particularly for pontoon users.

Alex Mongeon, co-founder & CEO of Vision Marine, stated, “The pontoon market in the United States is significant, and pontoon users are prime candidates for the E-Motion™ 180E. Since 2021, several pontoon brands have been testing our systems, and we are honored that Curt Jensen’s Wired Pontoons has joined this pioneering group.”

This initial order from Wired not only reinforces their position as an innovative leader in sustainable boating but also marks a significant milestone in the journey towards decarbonized and enhanced boating experiences. Through this partnership with Vision Marine, Wired is set to offer its customers a proven, powerful electric propulsion solution that has demonstrated its effectiveness.

The E-Motion™ 180E is a key component of the Wired 23-R electric pontoon and delivers an unparalleled experience in electric marine propulsion.
