ePropulsion 3 kW pod motor - battery range

Driving time and range depend on the battery, boat and usage. In an example with a 24-foot (7.3 m) sailboat and a 4.1 kWh E80 battery, we got the following readings:

  • Under full load, the Pod 3.0 Evo cruises for 1:20 h and reaches a speed of 11.6 km/h (11.6 mph). The range was 15.6 km.

  • At 1/2 power, the driving pleasure lasts for a 3 to 4-hour trip on the water. In the test, we were able to achieve a range of 23.6 km at a speed of 8.7 km/h.

  • Who plans longer and more leisurely tours on the water, comes with less power still significantly further. At 1/6 of the power (500 W), we could still drive at 6.4 km / h for 7.5 hours. This resulted in a range of 30 47.7 kilometers!"

For the ePropulsion Pod Drive 3.0 EVO we recommend the following batteries:

  • 2x E40 (2048Wh lithium-ion battery) = 4096 Wh
  • 1x E80 (4096Wh lithium-ion battery) = 4096 Wh
  • 1x E175 (8960 Wh lithium-ion battery)
  • 4x 12 V third-party batteries (however, communication does not work with third-party batteries, so we do not recommend this)

Thanks to the uniform voltage of 48V, you can easily take your desired battery on board. This allows batteries to be connected in parallel and combined. Please pay attention to our information about the batteries used and make sure there is enough storage space.

The lithium-ion battery can also be quickly made roadworthy again, depending on the charger. The charger should be selected depending on the desired battery size. We would be happy to support you here in our free telephone consultation or with our digital advisor.
