Battery power is finding its way into all forms of transportation, even those meant purely for recreation and thrills. This year, all-electric water toys took on many shapes and styles, from powerful add-on e-drives, to over/underwater submersible hydrofoils, to mass-produced personal submarines inching closer to "affordability." The year also brought first looks at electric vessels promising next-generation performance levels that rival their gas counterparts, including a hydrofoil jet ski with claimed speeds of 55 mph and a non-foil 300-hp PWC able to throttle all the way to 75 mph. Before replacing the calendar and gearing up for the latest electric hardware at early-2023 boat shows like Düsseldorf and Miami, take a look back at the fastest flying, deepest diving, hardest charging electric water toys of 2022.
