Mercury unveils new higher power electric outboards for electric boats

A year ago at CES 2023, Mercury Marine introduced its first electric outboard, the Avator 7.5e. For this year's show, it presents the highest performance models of the all-electric Avator range.

After the Avator 7.5e in January 2023, after the 20e and 35e in August, it's the 75e and 110e series that it presents at CES in January 2024.

Both new outboards more than double the power of any previous Avator product, adding new on-water performance capabilities to the Avator family. The new motors include the same targeted runtime and modular battery system of previous Avators, allowing end users to tailor range and time on the water to their own specific needs.

Despite appearances that could be misleading, these are still low-power models, and the figures in the name have to be divided by 10 to find out the power.

The 75e puts out up to 7.5 kW (10 hp) at the prop shaft, while the 110e ups it to 11 kW (14.8 hp).

The new units integrate directly with the wider Avator ecosystem, sharing the custom propellers, boom, color display, remote controls and Mercury Marine app functionality with previous Avator outboards.


"We told the world we’d be creating five innovative electric outboards. This week at CES, we fulfilled that commitment with our 75e and 110e models," Patrick Reinke, category manager for electrification on the Mercury eSolutions team, said during last week's announcement. "We’ll soon be able to offer boaters a complete family of low-voltage, all-electric propulsion systems capable of powering boats ranging from small inflatables and aluminum fishing boats all the way up to pontoons and small fiberglass runabouts."
