Mink Campers, the innovative Icelandic camper brand, has made a significant leap forward in the world of electric vehicles with the introduction of their latest creation – the MINK-E.
This groundbreaking teardrop camper is not only the first of its kind but also the lightest and most environmentally friendly model in the Mink Camper family. With its sleek design, functional features, and commitment to sustainability, the MINK-E is set to revolutionise the camping experience for eco-conscious adventurers.
The Evolution of Mink Campers
Founded in 2015, Mink Campers quickly gained recognition for their unique and meticulously crafted campers. The first model to hit the market was the vibrant yellow MINK-S in 2017, followed by the rugged all-terrain MINK-X earlier this year. These campers provided campers with the perfect blend of comfort, functionality, and Nordic-inspired design. Now, with the introduction of the MINK-E, Mink Campers is setting new standards in the industry.
Embracing Electric Power
The MINK-E is a game-changer in the world of campers, as it is the world’s first towable, fully electric teardrop camper. Weighing just 510 kg, this lightweight camper is equipped with fixtures and fittings that are powered solely by electricity. Gone are the days of relying on diesel heating and gas stoves. The MINK-E can be charged directly through its EV charging socket, making it a truly sustainable and eco-friendly option for camping enthusiasts.
Minimalist Design, Maximum Comfort
One of the standout features of Mink Campers is their distinctive design, inspired by their Nordic origins. The MINK-E continues this tradition with its oversized panoramic skylight and large round side windows, allowing campers to fully immerse themselves in the beauty of nature. Inside, the camper boasts a luxury Queen-size Scandinavian mattress, providing the utmost comfort for a restful night’s sleep.
Freedom to Explore
Mink Campers are designed to offer campers the freedom to explore without the constraints of traditional camping. With the MINK-E, you can enjoy the convenience of “get up and go” camping while staying warm and dry in all conditions. Its compact size allows for easy maneuverability, giving you access to even the most remote and hard-to-reach places. Whether you’re a couple, a small family, or traveling with furry friends, the MINK-E has you covered with its versatile canvas bunk bed that can be adjusted or removed to create more space for your belongings.
The MINK-E offers campers an immersive experience like no other. Imagine lying in bed, gazing up at the sky and surrounding nature transforming into a real-life TV show. The Scandinavian queen-size luxury mattress provides ample space for two adults to relax and unwind after a day of outdoor adventures.
Cooking and Comfort
Open-air cooking is a breeze with the MINK-E. The rear of the camper opens up to reveal a spacious prep area, complete with plenty of storage. The high-quality countertop features an integrated 36L ice chest for keeping your drinks cool. Additionally, a storage compartment with removable boxes houses the signature cube gas stove, adorned with Scandinavian oak panels. The kitchen space is equipped with both 12v and 220v sockets, ensuring you have all the power you need. For added convenience, Mink Campers offers a range of extras, including an enamel camping dining set and a selection of duvet sets and signature blankets for the sleeping area.
Comfort in All Weather Conditions
Mink Campers have been meticulously designed and road-tested to withstand the unpredictable weather conditions of Iceland. The MINK-E is no exception, as it has been built to thrive in any environment, including off-road exploration in rugged landscapes. Its walls are constructed with 30mm thick, high-quality fused ABS plastics and insulated with 19mm Armaflex, a highly thermo-insulating material. The side-wall-integrated AirFlow™ system ensures proper ventilation, while the optional Webasto heating system keeps the cabin warm and cozy, even in sub-zero temperatures.
A Commitment to Sustainability
Mink Campers takes sustainability seriously, and the MINK-E reflects this commitment. The camper’s aerodynamic design and frameless Solid Shell Structure™ contribute to its lightweight construction, weighing in at just 510 kg. The materials used in the cabin are carefully chosen, with a focus on recyclability. Roughly 25% of each unit’s weight is comprised of molded ABS plastic, and the kitchen table tops are made from Fenix, a recyclable material. These eco-friendly choices reduce energy consumption during towing and promote the use of environmentally friendly vehicles, such as electric cars.
With the introduction of the MINK-E, Mink Campers has once again raised the bar in the camper industry. This fully electric teardrop camper combines innovative design, eco-friendly features, and a commitment to providing campers with unparalleled comfort and convenience. Whether you’re embarking on a weekend getaway or a longer adventure, the MINK-E offers a truly immersive and sustainable camping experience. Stay tuned for the official launch and start planning your next eco-friendly camping trip with the MINK-E.
