Mercury Marine, a division of Brunswick Corp., has begun production of its new 20e and 35e Avator electric propulsions systems, with sales of the new outboards planned for later in 2023.
Mercury launched its first electric propulsion product, the Avator 7.5e, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January and recently began shipments to dealers worldwide. Mercury said it will introduce five Avator products in 2023.
Mercury will formally launch its Avator 20e and 35e electric outboards later this summer.
“We are thrilled to take the next step in our electrification journey as we continue to deliver on our commitment to being the industry leader in both internal combustion products and electric propulsion,” John Buelow, Mercury Marine president, said in a statement. “Consumer feedback from the Avator 7.5e has been very positive and we are confident the same will be true for the 20e and 35e once they enter the marketplace.”
