The all-electric personal watercraft has been made using carbon fiber, which apart from providing strength makes it light weight with the hull alone weighing just 34 pounds. Powered by a pair of twin direct drive electric propulsion pods that are fueled by onboard batteries Samba reaches top speed of 65mph (105kph) without creating any air or noise pollution.
