TEMO brings a new electric-powered outboard motor to the US market with the help of Defender Industries.

Nantes, 14 September 2022. The French-based company TEMO, manufacturer of the first portable, electric-powered outboard motor TEMO.450 is entering the US market.

The pioneering start-up has had great initial success in its domestic market. Only 3 years after the launch of the TEMO.450 engine, it has already delivered more than 3,000 electric motors all over Europe and is now looking towards rapid international expansion by tackling the North American market.

The Waterford, CT headquartered company Defender Industries has been appointed as the official US dealer and the TEMO.450 motor will be revealed at the Annapolis Sailboat Show in October.

Defender Industries supplies a wide range of high-end marine products. Defender managing director Stephan Lance said he is delighted to welcome TEMO.450 to Defender’s portfolio.

He said: “Since Defender began offering electric motors over 10 years ago, the demand for clean, safe, and efficient propulsion has grown significantly. The TEMO.450 brings a new power option for small tenders and boats to the table. One that is lightweight, stows easily, and is easy to operate”

TEMO’s innovation is being recognized and has won several international awards. TEMO.450 was a METSTRADE Connect 2020 DAME innovation winner, the highest European distinction in the maritime industry, and also received the prestigious 2022 Pittman Innovation Awards in the USA.

Designed for dinghies, tenders, and small boats, the portable system includes a 450W motor, 110V charger, rowlock fitting kit, and security device. It weighs just under 11 lbs, has a propulsive power of 200W, and produces 12kg of maximum thrust from its motor.
