Not the same as Johnson. Johnson has been gone for years

Aren’t they the same as Johnson anyway ? 
Years ago they were. Johnson name was dropped about 10 years ago. Previous to that they were selling rebadged Suzuki 4 strokes for a while. Hate to see Etec go. Was interested in that new 3 cyl 150. Looked like a super efficient engine.

It's too bad. Owned a 2006 115 hp etec for 11 years and loved it. Put about 100 hrs a year on it, mostly trolling hrs. Only took it into the dealer every 3 years. Replaced boat and motor two years ago with a Almacraft and a Yamaha 4 stroke. Looked for boats with an etec but couldn't find much around here. It seems to be a choice of Mercury or Yamaha.

Despite etech’s excellent track record on reliability and safety towards the environment, there have been rumors that states were considering the banning of non-four strokes for water quality. I think those rumors spooked potential buyers.
