The Swedish electric manufacturer Polestar begins providing battery to it's new partner Candela electric boat. Candela new model is “pushing the boundaries of what electric boats and ships can do”. Battery powered by Polestar.

Boatmaker Candela introduces its new offering, the Candela C-8, in collaboration with fellow Swedish company Polestar. With 'Powered by Polestar' technology, this electric boat offers a respectable 57 nautical miles of range at a cruising speed of 22 knots.

In August last year, Polestar announced a partnership that sees them provide charging componentry to a third-party for the first time. The same battery pack and charging technology as the Polestar 2 Standard range Single motor will be incorporated in the Candela C-8 – giving it an impressive range of up to 57 nautical miles on one charge. This means the Candela C-8 boasts a range two to three times longer than conventional electric speed boats.

In recent statements the Candela CEO Gustav Hasselskog: “The Candela C-8 is the first electric vessel that can travel to destinations that were previously only reachable by combustion engine boats”.

The Candela C-8's hull is designed to rise above the waves when cruising at high speeds. Its flight controller - a computer which takes into account any side winds, loads and waves - offers dynamic stability and enables it to consume 80% less energy than conventional craft at higher velocities.
