Electric car maker, Polestar, has revealed this morning that it has signed a multi-year deal to a Swedish hydrofoil electric boat company, Candela, to supply the batteries.Candela produces boats that produce very little noise and zero emissions. The boats actually hover above the water surface using hydrofoils. This means the boats use less energy at higher speeds. In fact, some studies have proven that Candela’s boats are 80% more energy efficient than regular motorboats.
The batteries that Polestar currently source are from Asia-based companies, LG Chem and CATL.
