Evinrude’s new outboard engines and virtual dashboard


EvinrudeEvinrude recently unveiled an expansion of its E-TEC G2 line, and a new virtual dashboard.
E-TEC G2 new models include the E-TEC G2 150, 150 H.O., 175 and 200, and they are able to deliver up to 30 % more torque, up to 15 % better fuel efficiency and up to 75 % fewer total regulated emissions compared to leading four-stroke outboard engines.
“Our Evinrude E-TEC G2 technology is now the benchmark for outboard engines,” said Alain Villemure, vice-president and general manager of BRP’s Marine Propulsion Systems division. “By expanding this award-winning product line to lower horsepower models, even more consumers can benefit from the industry-leading performance of Evinrude E-TEC G2. From bass to pontoon, center console to aluminum fishing, freshwater to saltwater, the revolution is here.”
BRP also announced the release of its virtual dashboard for direct control of important engine features from a mobile device, the Evinrude E-Link. The dashboard shares critical E-TEC G2 engine data over a NMEA 2000 network via WiFi to any iOS or Android device, from anywhere on a boat. Evinrude E-Link mirrors the data shown on Evinrude’s ICON Touch displays, giving users fingertip access to vital engine and vessel information, including:
– Engine RPM, fuel flow, trim position and oil level, fuel levels, battery voltage and water depth;
Two trip logs for a better fuel management, through distance traveled, fuel consumed, average and top speed;
– An Eco page for the best efficiency in different operating conditions, through estimated range, current and average fuel use;
– A Concierge page with links to the ‘Find a Dealer’ webpage, ‘Send Engine Data’ to e-mail data to dealers or service teams.
“Our development teams are focused on providing our customers with added convenience, control and value,” said Villemure.  “Evinrude E-Link makes managing the most advanced engines on the market, Evinrude E-TEC G2, even easier. Now boaters can have all the information they need right in the palm of their hand.”
Evinrude E-Link also gives users remote control of Evinrude’s i-Trim intelligent trim system and Dynamic Power Steering feature. The device can also initiate Evinrude E-TEC G2 “one touch” auto-winterization. Fully customizable, it can display data in metric, imperial, U.S. standard and nautical units of measure, and it can be set to five different languages – English, French, Spanish, German and Italian.
With no required break-in period and featuring standard push-button automatic winterization, the E-TEC G2 product line is designed to be easy to own, and is covered by a five-year/ 500-hour warranty with no dealer-scheduled maintenance.
