300-hp Supermarine MM01 takes all-electric jet skis to a whole new level
All-electric jet skis have been edging onto the scene for a few years now, with performance gradually approaching that of their gas-powered counterparts. But if the numbers cited for the all-electric Supermarine MM01 stack up, it's here to play with the PWC big guns.
Designed by French company Bouvet Marine, the two-seater MM01 is marked by an almost sci-fi aerodynamic Kevlar/carbon monocoque body, backed by whopping 220-kW (300-hp) electric motor that delivers 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque and a claimed top speed of 121 km/h (75 mph).
Power is provided by a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery pack, which should be good for up to two hours of runtime – presumably depending very much on usage – per 50-minute charge.
Other features include 3D-printed titanium handlebars, a 110-liter front cargo trunk, plus a control/navigation interface that incorporates a touchscreen and programmable push-button controls.
The MM01 is to be offered in Nacre (mother-of-pearl) and Black Edition variants. Both measure 3.5 m long by 1.3 m wide by 1.1 m high (11.5 by 4.3 by 3.6 ft). There's no word on weight.
Plans call for a limited number of each version to be made. They should be released early in 2024 at a yet-to-be-announced price ... but expectations are in the supercar range.
