180E Electric outboard powering the H2eVision Marine and Beneteau will jointly market the ground-breaking Four Winns H2e to Beneteau’s dealer network, which includes 72 dealers in the United States, and 400 worldwide, on five continents. The H2e is the first purpose built fully electric runabout available to the market. Four Winns will showcase the H2e and associated technology at the Paris Boat Show, December 3-10, 2022, ahead of the ultimate formal introduction of this innovative new model at the Miami International Boat Show, to be held February 16-20, 2023.

"This initial order sets an important commercial milestone and reflects not only the value, but also the trust Beneteau places in our innovative technology, as we expand fully electric propulsion systems globally across Beneteau’s formidable portfolio of brands,” stated Alex Mongeon, co-founder & CEO of Vision Marine.

This initial order clearly cements Beneteau’s position as an innovative pioneer, with a clear focus on sustainable and decarbonized boating, as well as a greatly enhanced customer experience. The partnership in place with Vison Marine will enable Beneteau to offer eco-responsible alternative propulsion solutions adapted for its models by 2030, in order to fulfill Beneteau’s recently announced mandate to do so.

The world’s most powerful electric powertrain, the 180E electric outboard engine, powers the Four Winns H2e, offering peak power of 230HP and top speed of approximately 35 knots (40mph), as well as rapid acceleration and precise handling. There is presently nothing like it on a commercial scale available to OEMs or consumers.

The system consists of two custom high voltage, high density 700v battery packs, complete with a fully integrated and powerful onboard charger that can be plugged into any dock shore power system for quick recharging. With an advanced 70kw battery pack, the H2e has the power and autonomy to cruise all day.

Additionally, the H2e features the first ever smart “adaptive” digital console designed, specifically for the marine industry. A complete dual touch screen display allows the boater direct connectivity to entertainment controls, phone connection, and an advanced navigation system. H2e boaters will also have access to an automatic logbook providing trip history, battery status, security, and even weather forecasts.

The sleek lines, elegant look, and unparalleled performance and quietness of the ground-breaking Vision Marine electric propulsion system enhances the classic look of the iconic Four Winns bowrider, adding a modern touch to the boat.
