The cleaner alternative
Torqeedo drives cause no water pollution, because there is no exhaust gas, no oil, and no gasoline. They are superior to combustion motors in regard to their carbon footprint. The reason for the better carbon footprint of Torqeedo's electric drive systems is their low, resource-saving weight together with their dramatically lower power requirements in operation.
