Q-Yachts once again leads the way in electric boating. The Finnish e-boat builder is further developing its portfolio by introducing a new, fully electric boat for commercial use
Q30 eLimo is an electric boat that is designed for water limousine and taxi service use. The concept has been developed to answer a clear demand from the market for a zero emission vessel that is able to transport people in crowded cities and lake areas in an environmentally conscious and efficient way. Air and water pollution are increasing problems in the world. In addition, cities, ports and lakes are plagued by noice, a special type of pollution. The Q30 eLimo rises to address also this problem by offering a truly sustainable solution for silent water transportation.
The Q30 eLimo combines state of the art technology with elegance to offer an extraordinary smooth boating experience. Imagine gliding on the water while producing minimal wake, without any engine noise or exhaust fumes.
The Q30 eLimo is designed to meet the requests of the demanding limousine and charter operations – creating an unparalleled boating experience both for the driver and passengers. A characteristic feature of the Q30 eLimo is the hydrodynamically optimised hull for slow to medium speeds (up to 15 kts / 27 km/h). Where fast charging is possible, the Q30 eLimo will offer an electric only version with a 30-60kWh battery capacity. For heavy use and/or where there is sufficient infrastructure for hydrogen fuelling, Q-Yachts offers a version fuelled by hydrogen and fuel cell, offering up to 120kWh of electric capacity. Hence the Q30 eLimo offers a commercially truly feasible solution for transporting passengers all day without the need for charging/fueling.
