12/11/2023

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Dec. 11, 2023 /CNW/ - The leading off-road electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, Taiga Motors Corporation (TSX: TAIG) ("Taiga" or the "Company"), is thrilled to announce that Delma Industrial Supplies and Marine Services ("Delma Marine") is now an official distributor for Taiga in the United Arab Emirates ("UAE"). Taiga is excited to bring sustainable water exploration and recreation to the Gulf region, with the UAE being its first market in the region.

"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." said Sam Bruneau, CEO and Co-Founder of Taiga Motors. "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."

Delma Marine, one of the leading marine distributors in the UAE serving both commercial and recreational marine customers, was chosen for its extensive knowledge and experience in distributing and servicing premium marine brands. Ayoub Alkhajeh, owner and Chairman of Delma Marine, stated "We are delighted to add Taiga to our portfolio of luxury marine brands and to bring Taiga's revolutionary, sustainable technology to the UAE. Delma has led the way in marine products and services since 1978 in the region and we're excited to continue our tradition of excellence and innovation with the cutting-edge Taiga Orca personal watercrafts."

OrcaTM: sustainable water exploration without compromise

The Orca Performance is a leap forward with an innovative hull, battery, and electric propulsion technology. The precision molded hull has been hydrodynamically optimised balancing playful carving and efficient cruising across varied conditions. This is coupled with a low center of gravity from the battery below the waterline delivering leading stability through high-speed maneuvering.

Orca Performance is powered by Taiga's sixth generation integrated motor-inverter Tractive Unit, delivering greater efficiency with up to 160 hp and 170 Nm of torque, resulting in a top speed of 100km/h1. The Tractive Unit offers peak torque across an ultrawide torque band and millisecond response time for precise and exhilarating acceleration at any speed. The sealed lithium-ion battery has been optimized to safely deliver maximum power across its lifetime under high vibrations and saltwater environments, providing energy for up to two hours of riding. Using standard automotive charging systems, Orca Performance can be easily charged with the included mobile connector overnight on any outlet, with Level 2 chargers in 3.5hrs, or with an optional DC Fast Charging to 80% in under 40 minutes1.

Selected as one of the Best Inventions of 2022 by TIME Magazine and winner of the Fast Company 2022 World Changing Ideas Award and 2022 Best of What's New Award from Popular Science, Taiga is thrilled to bring its EVs to the UAE and redefine powersports and marine industry by making it more sustainable, accessible, and exhilarating than ever.
