Sales revenue grew 200 percent year-over-year in 2021, with more than 15,000 units sold worldwide, according to ePropulsion. The company is forecasting 100 percent sales growth for 2022 as boaters continue moving toward electric propulsion.


“ePropulsion’s development continues with investment in ongoing innovation, research and development, and product and personnel development to help us retain the best talent, produce successful and well-received products, and play our part in contributing to the global mission to reach zero carbon emissions” CEO Danny Tao said in a statement. “We are very excited to see what 2022 brings.”
