Just In Time For A Harlem Staycation, This RV Giant Just Unveiled Its First Electric Camper Van

The folks at Winnebago build a wide range of camping vehicles, from off-road RVs to tiny camping trailers.

Their latest concept, however, is one that could revolutionize the industry: the e-RV concept vehicle, which Winnebago just debut at the Florida RV SuperShow.

The e-RV is an all-electric, zero-emission camper van built on a modified Ford Transit platform that uses an aftermarket EV conversion.

Winnebago says the concept is fully functional.

The e-RV has all the powered amenities you would expect from a camper van. 350-volt DC power powers a water heater and a roof-mounted air conditioner with a heat pump.

110-volt AC runs the refrigerator and induction cooktop. The setup uses an integrated control system accessible by tablet or smartphone and offers a dual-modem system for “residential-grade” wireless internet.

Range — as it often the case with introductory EV concepts — isn’t ideal. Winnebago says that the e-RV can achieve a range of 125 miles from its 86-kWh battery configuration with all the features running.



Winnebago claims this would meet the needs of a “majority” of new RV buyers; according to the cited survey data, 54% of new EV buyers would prefer to travel less than 200 miles roundtrip.
