100 Percent Electric Car
Agreed, it’s not about a RIB this time but I found this article published by the Belgian Pneumaticlub to be a very interesting real life test case to share with you.
It’s about traveling by a 100 percent electric car trailering an average boat. The car is an Audi e-tron 55 capable of towing 1,800 kg.
This maximum weight could apply to many Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs) being towed.
The full article is published in the newly uploaded magazine of the Belgian Pneumatic Club.
It is a very detailed well-written article describing distances, calculations and charging times. I was very curious about the outcome and it struck me to read the following conclusion:
“Au niveau du coût et pour ce voyage aller-retour, rouler à l’électrique est 40% plus cher par rapport au diesel.”
(In terms of cost and for this round trip, driving on electric is 40% more expensive compared to diesel.)
