Polestar the Swedish premium electric performance car company, has signed a multi-year agreement to supply battery and charging systems to Swedish hydrofoil electric boat company, Candela. The agreement marks one of the world’s first direct battery technology collaborations between companies from the automotive and marine industries.
As leading EV brands in their respective sectors, both Polestar and Candela share common values of innovative design and commitments to sustainability. Utilising computer-guided hydrofoils which lift the hull above water, Candela’s electric boats ‘fly’ above the surface and use up to 80% less energy at high speeds compared to traditional motorboats.
Candela’s crafts produce zero emissions and minimal noise, combining a light environmental footprint with better passenger comfort and a smoother cruising experience compared to traditional boats. By combining Polestar’s batteries with Candela’s pioneering electric hydrofoil technology, both companies aim to propel the growth of sustainable electric mobility in society.
The supply of battery and charging systems to a third party, a first for Polestar as an EV manufacturer, marks the start of a broader intended partnership between Polestar and Candela, with both companies committed to exploring further opportunities for future collaboration.
