The London Electric Vehicle Company has unveiled what it is calling the world’s first electric campervan, the e-Camper.
According to the London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC), the inspiration behind the new electric vehicle was to offer flexibility and freedom to customers looking to holiday at home, a trend accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Based on the VN5, LEVC’s medium-sized electric van, the e-Camper has a pure EV range of over 60 miles with a total flexible range of 304 miles, thanks to a fitted range-extender. The electric campervan also has a pure-electric WLTP certified city range of 75.8 miles.
The new LEVC e-Camper includes sleeping accommodation for four, an integrated electric kitchenette, pop-up roof (incorporating sleeping for two) and a central folding table. In addition, the campervan includes a second-row bench seat, which folds into the second double bed.
Joerg Hofmann, CEO of LEVC, commented: “The campervan market is growing rapidly and, despite these vehicles being used for coastal and countryside adventures which often include national parks and protected areas, they are still powered by petrol or diesel engines. This is a major conflict; we can see a shift in consumer attitudes, with demand for greener mobility solutions to help to protect and improve air quality.
“Our new electric, zero-emissions capable e-Camper offers the perfect solution and is well-equipped with high-quality features that can be tailored to meet a range of customer requirements.”
LEVC says it sees huge potential across the UK and Europe and, in partnership with campervan converting firm Wellhouse Leisure, the first deliveries of e-Camper will take place in Q4 2021 for a price of £62,25.
