SonicX by Venture RV
And the winner is……. The Venture RV Sonic X! Prototype or concept vehicles are rare when you’re talking about RVs and the RV industry. So when KZ RV’s, Venture RV subsidiary came out with a Sonic X concept vehicle for the RVX trade show this past March, it was never meant to go into production Well…… so much for that.
Interest in the Sonic X was so overwhelming that the design team went to work to create a version which captures most the features of the original prototype, while keeping the costs reasonable. The completely self-sustainable Sonic X utilizes a Go-Power solar system with four solar panels, 250-amp lithium-ion battery, 2000 –watt inverter and 100-amp charger.
Designed for off-the-road-use, the Sonic X comes with 15-inch off the road tires, rock guards, high-definition LED light bars front and rear as well as a trademark tubular ‘nerf-bar’ bumper system.
The concept vehicle’s carbon fiber walls have given way to high-gloss laminated fiberglass mounted to aluminum framing.
In staying with its truly off-the-grid capabilities, the Sonic X has a one of a kind water filtration system that will draw water up to 75 feet away, from a six-foot drop. The Sonic X is currently available in two floor plans, the rear bath 26-foot, 11-inch SN220VRBX and the SN211VDBX which incorporates rear twin beds into its 26-foot, 6-inch dimensions and both models offer a single street side slideout. Congratulations to the design team and management of KZ-RV and Venture
Congratulations to all the winners of the RVBusiness RV of the Year Awards!
