The electric revolution has finally made its way to the camping world.
Motor home giant Winnebago unveiled the e-RV concept at the Florida RV SuperShow on Tuesday. The slick prototype features an all-electric powertrain from Lightning e Motors and can travel 125 miles on a single charge.
The e-RV is the product of two years of development by the the brand’s Advanced Technology Group. The camper is based on the Ford Transit—as opposed to the increasingly ubiquitous Mercedes-Benz Sprinter—but instead of a gasoline powertrain under its hood, you’ll find an all-electric drive unit.
Winnebago offered scant details about the concept, but it did say that the Lightning e Motors powertrain is connected to a 86.0-kWh battery pack. No power figures were provided, but the vehicle is expected to travel 125 miles on a single charge. Read the rest of the story here.
