Over the past two years, Vision Marine, in collaboration with its partners, has developed the industry's first 1 monolithic marine-dedicated battery pack, meticulously engineered to power the E-Motion™ Powertrain. These state-of-the-art battery packs surpass readily available alternatives sourced from the automotive industry, showcasing Vision Marine's unwavering commitment to deliver superior quality and performance.

The VMT 700V DC Powerpacks boast a range of indispensable features tailored specifically for marine applications, including an IP67 rating, unrivalled durability, a custom design form factor crafted to seamlessly integrate with manufacturing and integration requirements, and an unwavering focus on meeting rigorous industrial production standards.

With the imminent transition to production slated for July 2023, Vision Marine is proactively preparing to gradually ramp up its production capabilities to meet the burgeoning demand for its electric powertrain solutions. To ensure a seamless and efficient manufacturing process, Vision Marine has secured production partnerships with a streamlined network of regional suppliers in Europe, mitigating any potential risk of production and supply shortages. The production of marine battery packs will take place in a cutting-edge, brand-new facility in Europe, renowned for its pioneering technology and unwavering commitment to the highest certification standards.

"Our voyage towards mass production represents a monumental milestone for Vision Marine," remarked Alexandre Mongeon, CEO and co-founder of Vision Marine. "Through calculated investments in cutting-edge tooling and the establishment of a robust supply chain, we are poised to revolutionize the realm of pleasure boat electrification.

With a secure production plan in place, Vision Marine has made strategic investments by acquiring the industrial production tooling necessary for mass production. This includes the tooling for the marine custom-designed battery pack's cell stack and cooling system, and the bolstering of the Company's intellectual property and ownership of the conception and design of the pack's external casing.

With a production capacity of over 10,000 battery packs per year, Vision Marine unequivocally solidifies its position as an industry leader, diligently catering to the ever-evolving demands of the dynamic marine sector. This remarkable production capability not only fortifies Vision Marine's stature as a trailblazer, but also serves as an emphatic testament to our steadfast commitment to deliver unmatched excellence and dependable solutions.
