Vision Marine to Launch Global Marketing Campaign for the E-Motion on May 1

Canada-based Vision Marine Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: VMAR) (“Vision” or the “Company”) is announcing, following the excellent reception from manufacturers, the unveiling of its new electric outboard engine to the general public; the E-Motion 180. “We finally achieved the balance we sought between power, functionality and autonomy,” said Alexandre Mongeon, CEO and co-founder of Vision “Our engine has surpassed our expectations in every aspect, with 180 hp and 390 Nm of torque, we have the most powerful electric outboard engine available on the market” he added.

Global Outreach to Recreational Boaters
Vision Marine’s go-to-market strategy is two-fold. Initially, it is to offer customers the ability to reserve the E-Motion 180, starting May 1, so they can secure a unit within the next six months. To achieve this, Vision Marine has partnered with Nerd Marketing, a well-known marketing agency with a proven track record for bringing innovation to the marketplace. Key components of the strategic initiative involve securing prime advertisement in significant trade publications and establishing a strong presence among recreational boaters through a variety of online channels, including Google, YouTube, Amazon, Instagram, Facebook, industry-related websites, and niche communities.

In addition to the marketing campaign, Vision’s team is further developing its distribution channel to support the demand for parts and services throughout North America, Australia and in select countries in Europe.

Electric is the New Mainstream.
“The electric revolution that has swept the automotive industry is knocking at our door and major players are now investing in electric solutions, said Patrick Bobby cofounder of Vision Marine Technologies. This launch is great news for Vision Marine Technologies, not only because we are years ahead of the competition, but mainly because we have been working tirelessly toward the electrification of our waterways and we are finally reaching the tipping point.”

Mr. Mongeon continued, “This is the perfect time and ideal inflection point to launch our effort to make consumers aware of the benefits of E-Motion as compared with traditional propulsion systems. With this inaugural outreach campaign, we are formally ushering in a new era in the recreational boating experience.”

Key Features of E-Motion:
• Zero emissions
• Noiseless, odorless & smokeless
• Access to mobile application
• 24/7 monitoring of essential functions
• Sustainable solution
• 90% cost reduction in fuel and maintenance versus internal combustion engines
• A unique boating experience.
