Torqeedo introduced an enhanced website and joined Facebook and Twitter.

The website provides answers for prospective customers searching for an electric outboard motor and resources for Torqeedo owners.

The company said the site offers information about the Ultralight, Travel and Cruise line of motors. Visitors can download the latest Torqeedo catalog, access product manuals, see video demonstrations and locate a dealer. For the engineer at heart, the site provides detailed technical explanations about propulsion and propeller optimization.

Owners of Torqeedo motors can register their purchase, find warranty information and locate their nearest service center at the site. A detailed list of spare parts and accessories is also available.

Torqeedo invites fans to visit it on Facebook. Boaters who "like" Torqeedo will be able to receive the latest news and follow the adventures of other Torqeedo users.

Recommendations are also featured on the page, so potential and current customers can find firsthand accounts of the motors' capabilities.
