Compact and Integrated

Features

Featuring a streamlined design, the I-Series motors ingeniously combine five essential components into a remarkably compact unit. These include the motor itself, a gearbox, a motor controller, a system control unit, and a cooling system.

This integration not only conserves valuable space but also simplifies the installation process, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of marine applications.

Space-saving

With a design that takes up 60% less space than traditional combustion engines, our I-Series motors offer enhanced installation flexibility and free up valuable payload space.

Lighter weight

At 65% lighter than conventional combustion engines and 30% lighter than comparable electric inboards, our I-Series motors offer a significant weight advantage.

Hydrogeneration

All I-Series models feature a built-in hydrogeneration function, allowing you to capture electricity whilst sailing.

Easy to install

Pre-connected internal wiring ensures an out-of-the-box experience, facilitating immediate use upon delivery.

Easy to maintain

Thanks to advanced technology and thoughtfully designed interfaces, our I-Series motors require considerably less maintenance than traditional combustion engines.

Easy to operate

The unified throttle and display panel offer a seamless, intuitive driving experience. Our smart system is designed to actively understand the user's operational intentions, making control effortless.

G-Series Lithium Battery

The G102-100 battery is a high performance Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery (LiFePO4) designed especially for the I-Series inboards.

Competitive pricing

Unit price is as low as £0.50 per watt-hour.

High energy density

70% less weight and space than standard lead-acid batteries.

Longer life cycles

Boasting an impressive 3,000 cycles at 80% Depth of Discharge (DOD).

Made for ePropulsion Motors

The batteries share data with our motors, optimising performance and efficiency.

Hydrogeneration Empowers Sailors

All I-Series motors come equipped with a hydrogeneration function, enabling you to harness electricity directly from both wind and water. As a leader in the field, ePropulsion continues to pioneer groundbreaking innovations in electric outboard motor technology.
  • The I-10, I-20 and I-40 motors have the capability to charge ePropulsion batteries by utilising water flow to drive the propeller, provided certain conditions are met.
  • The hydrogeneration statistics are derived from actual tests conducted.
