The HotTug is working on a hybrid electric motor and the battery is enough to provide a power reserve of between two and eight hours of travel, depending on the model. Furthermore, the developers made the HotTug system to reuse the heat from the water, due to which the power consumption is reduced. And there are no harmful emissions!

Apart from a few passengers, HotTug can accommodate up to two thousand liters of water, incorporates an electric motor, which has a capacity of 2.4 kW and an electric oven for heating water.
