Back in 2014 we showed you the revolutionary “water-based transportation” vehicle known as Quadrofoil Q2. The original news story showcased the Q2 prototype which has C-foil technology, an electric outboard motor and the ability to reach speeds of up to 21 knots with a battery life upwards of 2,200 nautical miles. While many of these features are the same, the original production of Quadrofoil Q2 was set to be shipped out to buyers in March 2015.
This year, the R&D team improved many of the key components to satisfy the consumers. With a second prototype they were able to upgrade existing features. The major upgrade was deciding to switch out the generic electric outboard engine and designed a Quadrofoil-specific engine which has proven to be a very successful move. While Quadrofoil did want to keep their promise of shipping out the first production line in March 2015, they feel that by having one more year to test, fine tune and reorient a few things their product is even better. Many of the investors, dealers and buyers continued to trust Quadrofoil even with their late production by inviting them to help in the prototype testing.
With spending another year refining their Q2 machine, Quadrofoil is proud to announce that they will be coming out with a Q4 prototype shortly. This will be the luxurious vessel of the company with a sleek new design that has a rooftop protecting four passengers from the elements.
One can associate the Q2 to a Prius and the Q4 to a Tesla. Both terrific car that are economically friendly but offer two different styles of riding. Quadrofoil is out to create a personal water transportation vessel that leaves minimal impact in the environment while providing the passengers with a comfortable ride. This is a new market with riding above the water. This could explode so stay tune and we will let you know of any news to come.
