The D1 – a ready-made diesel engine replacement
Propel’s second new and high-tech product announced today, the Propel D1, is an inboard series of electric crate motors designed specifically to replace ageing diesel engines and enable the transition to marine electrification hassle-free. The D1 inboards are small but have everything built in, with no external controllers or pumps. Propel engineers made it their mission to make the transition to electric as easy as possible; simply take an old diesel out, install the motor on the same foundation, connect drive-shaft, water and battery, and you are ready to go.
The D1 incorporates Saietta-engineered Axial Flux Technology. The unique AFT motors provide class-leading performance with high torque density at low voltage. The result is an advanced propulsion solution that emits nothing but a soft, low hum, going further on a single charge and resulting in more time on the water.
