Mercury Marine, a division of Brunswick, has introduced the Avator 20e and 35e electric propulsion systems. The new models join the lineup next to the Avator 7.5e outboard, which was unveiled in January.

The company says it expects to debut two more electric-outboard products in the coming months, as well.

Mercury Marine says the Avator 20e and 35e have many of the same features as the 7.5e, including transverse flux motor technology, a full-color intuitive display and an ambidextrous tiller handle. The new models offer more power and the ability to connect multiple Avator batteries to extend range and run time, plus full access to the Mercury Marine app with the integrated SmartCraft Connect module.

The Avator 20e and 35e outboards generate 2200W and 3700W of power, respectively, at the propeller shaft. The 20e can produce acceleration that’s similar to a 5 hp FourStroke outboard, while the 35e generates acceleration that is comparable to a Mercury 9.9 hp FourStroke outboard.

These engines are intended for small vessels such as tenders, and are offered with tiller or remote steering.

Are the Avator 20e and 35e outboards available for purchase now? Yes, they went on the market in late August.
