TAIGA ORCA Electric Watercraft

Montreal-based startup Taiga Motors began life in 2015 as a spin-out from the racing team at McGill University, where co-founders Paul Achard, Gabriel Bernatchez, and Sam Bruneau worked on electric powertrains. The company has developed a line of electric snowmobiles and has now announced an electric watercraft (as reported by Electrek). The Taiga Orca features carbon fiber construction and a 23 kWh battery pack, which the company says will power about two hours of fun on the water.

The Orca has a waterproof digital display between the handlebars, where riders can tap into what sounds like a fair bit of technology, like GPS maps, LTE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth radios, information from embedded water temperature sensors, and feeds from onboard cameras and a sonar unit. And it wouldn’t be a modern mobility machine without a companion smartphone app and the ability to accept over-the-air updates, both of which Taiga Motors promises will accompany the Orca.
