Taiga Motors presents second electric jet ski model


Taiga Motors, a Canadian manufacturer of electric snowmobiles and personal watercraft, introduces its second electric jet ski model, the Orca Performance.

The Orca Performance is offered at prices starting at 19,490 US dollars and thus costs about 7,000 dollars less than the first model Orca Carbon. The Orca Performance, which can go up to 100 km/h, has an output of up to 120 kW and offers up to two hours of electric driving fun on one battery charge. Safety also played a role in the vehicle’s design, as Taiga Motors wrote: “A fully closed loop powertrain system, designed for Taiga snowmobiles, not only ensures that no pollutants are introduced to the water, but also means no special winterization is required.” Furthermore, the auxiliary systems are designed in such a way that they feature “extremely low parasitic drain”, which allows the vehicle to be left unplugged for up to three years without draining the battery.

According to Taiga, the battery can optionally be charged to 80 per cent in less than 40 minutes via DC. As reported, Taiga Motors had also started production of its electric snowmobiles in Montreal at the beginning of 2022.

“This groundbreaking model represents a leap forward in mass-market boating electrification, showcasing our commitment to pushing boundaries and delivering exceptional performance at competitive prices,” said Samuel Bruneau, CEO, and co-founder of Taiga. “Our design and engineering teams have pushed themselves, enabling us to optimize designs for high volume manufacturing without compromising the Orca’s distinctive character lines, agile hydrodynamics or exhilarating acceleration.” He also comments that the vehicle is better suited for marine areas than its combustion counterparts due to the issue of fuel: “No more trips to the gas station, no more hauling fuel down to the dock or spills into the lake, and no more engine maintenance; Orca Performance truly redefines the experience of owning a personal watercraft.”
