Simple, light and reliable, this motor now includes a high-capacity new battery that boosts its range by an incredible 73 percent!

With a built-in ultra-efficient, lithium-manganese battery pack, Torqeedo Travel outboards deliver power and range. (Range varies depending on speed, conditions and boat type. At full throttle, run time is 60 minutes; slower speeds result in up to 17 hours or more!)

The Travel 1003C is completely waterproof, clean and easy to use with pushbutton starting and a four-function display that shows percentage of battery power remaining, speed over ground and remaining range. Speed and range are calculated using an integrated GPS receiver. An audible signal warns you when the battery charge drops to 30%. The smallest carbon footprint of any propulsion motor.
