Taiga Motors is delighted to introduce water exploration and recreation to the Gulf region, with the UAE being its first market in the region.

CEO and Co-Founder of Taiga Motors, Sam Bruneau, stated “We’re proud to introduce the Taiga OrcaTM personal watercraft to the UAE specifically in 2023, which has been dedicated as the ‘Year of Sustainability’ by its government. The Orca allows customers to enjoy water activities without compromising the environment. Furthermore, our proprietary battery pack and tractive unit were engineered to withstand the high demands of powersports and the UAE will be the perfect proving ground for our technology.”

The Orca Performance represents a significant advancement in marine technology, featuring an innovative hull design, cutting-edge battery, and electric propulsion system. The meticulously crafted hull is hydrodynamically optimized to achieve a perfect balance between dynamic carving and efficient cruising in diverse conditions. With the battery positioned below the waterline, the Orca ensures exceptional stability during high-speed maneuvers, thanks to its low center of gravity.

This translates to a top speed of 100 km/h1. The Tractive Unit stands out with its peak torque across an ultrawide band and millisecond response time, ensuring precise and exhilarating acceleration at any speed. The sealed lithium-ion battery has been meticulously engineered to provide maximum power throughout its lifespan, even in challenging conditions such as high vibrations and saltwater environments, offering up to two hours of riding time. Charging is convenient, with options for overnight charging on standard outlets using the included mobile connector, 3.5 hours on Level 2 chargers, or under 40 minutes to reach 80% with optional DC Fast Charging1.

Recognized as one of the Best Inventions of 2022 by TIME Magazine, the winner of the Fast Company 2022 World Changing Ideas Award, and the recipient of the 2022 Best of What’s New Award from Popular Science, Taiga is excited to introduce its electric vehicles to the UAE.
