EVs on the sea: Polestar and Candela

September 20, 2022

Founded in Stockholm in 2014, the electric boat manufacturer is "pushing the boundaries of what electric boats and ships can do," with their C-8 model becoming the best-selling electric boat in Europe. The C-FOIL system enables Candela's boats to reach a speed of 30 knots in absolute silence, leaving no pollution, wake, noise, or trace behind. The carbon fiber hydrofoils of Candela's boats generate enough lift at high speeds to raise the hull above the water. This system not only makes for a very smooth ride, but also enables the Candela C-8 to use 80% less energy than comparable boats at high speeds. Candela's engineers, obsessed with efficiency (another similarity between the brands), also designed the Candela C-POD, the most energy-dense boat motor ever created.
