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.

I think that is really cool. It looks like something Q would make for James Bond.

Until you've ridden a 300hp watercraft you haven't experienced what true speed feels like... I cannot wait until these are all electric and have the same range and recharging time as the current water monsters out there from Sea-Doo and Yamaha...

At 121km/h, one miscalculation in front a a wave and those pretty titanium handlebars are going to rip your arms and legs clean off...

Har. Instead of just the brew, this one says "Here, hold my opium pipe, my bong, and my beer, AND WATCH THIS!"
I look forward to reading about the new and interesting ways people commit JetSkicide with these.
