I heard it was a hybrid :confused:
No, sorry. That would be Honda Marine. They are marinizing the Hybrid engine from the Civic. Rumor is - they are converting it into an outboard.

I told you it was true !

Here you go :

(Fond du lac, WI) Marine News exclusive.
Mercury Marine, the world’s leading manufacturer of recreational marine propulsion engines, has announced a unique partnership with Kia Motors Korea. Mercury Marine, a $2.3 billion division of Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) and it`s 6,200 employees worldwide, will join with Kia, the leading automobile manufacturer of Korea, to produce a very unique hydrogen-powered outboard engine based on Kia`s 2.4 liter automobile engine. Mercury’s industry-leading brand portfolio includes Mercury and Mariner outboard engines; Mercury MerCruiser sterndrives and inboard engines; MotorGuide trolling motors; Mercury and Teignbridge propellers; MotoTron electronic controls; Mercury inflatable boats; Mercury SmartCraft electronics; Mercury and Quicksilver parts and oils and now MerKia, which will produce this special hydrogen fueled marine engine. In 2008, Mercury Marine’s OptiMax engine was ranked "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Two-Stroke Outboard Engines" by J.D. Power and Associates for the third consecutive year. Merkia hopes to achieve similar success with this offering.
Watch for further announcements on this ground-breaking achievement from the Wisconsin based company.
