New Candela C-8 Polestar Edition 2024 | Innovative Electric Hydrofoil Boat. Polestar and Candela reveal the next phase of their partnership – the Candela C-8 Polestar edition. Combining Polestar’s Scandinavian take on luxury EV design with Candela’s innovative electric hydrofoil boat, the new Candela C-8 Polestar edition unites the two companies’ efforts to accelerate the shift to more sustainable electric mobility.
The bespoke design cues include a new solid light grey color, specially designed seat upholstery and hydrofoils painted in iconic Swedish gold.
Starting from 2023, all Candela C-8 boats are powered by the 69-kWh battery and charging hardware from the standard-range Polestar 2 to realise a range of up to 57 nautical miles on one charge at a cruising speed of 22 knots. This compares favourably with traditional powerboats and comes with a high-speed range 2-3 times longer than conventional electric speedboats.
The Candela C-8 uses an efficient 75 kW electric direct drive pod motor– the Candela C-POD – and ‘flies’ on computer-guided hydrofoils that lift the hull above the water at high speeds, reducing energy consumption by up to 80% compared to traditional motorboats. When foiling, the ride is silent and smooth, without damaging wakes, thanks to Candela’s computer-stabilized foil technology.
The Candela C-8 Polestar edition is available online in the Polestar Additionals webshop or at Candela.com and is sold and delivered by Candela. Pricing starts from EUR 400,000/ USD 450,000. Production takes place at Candela’s factory in Stockholm, Sweden, and deliveries are expected from June 2024.
