The London Electric Vehicle Company has revealed first impressions of its new leisure vehicle, the e-Camper.
The world’s first electric campervan, the e-Camper is optimised to offer both zero-emission capability and zero range anxiety.
Like LEVC’s new VN5 electric van, the e-Camper has the same pure EV range of over 60 miles (98 km) with a total flexible range of 304 miles (489 km) and is designed for those who want to both protect and enjoy the outdoor environment. Its zero emissions capability delivers a low carbon footprint, and its innovative range extender technology allows owners to travel off the beaten track.
The 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.
When owners set up camp, they can swivel the first-row seats through 180 degrees and slide the second row back, creating enough room to dine and socialise around the deployable table. The pop-up roof creates standing room space for both the living and cooking areas and a single large sliding door makes entry to and exit from the living area easy.
Joerg Hofmann, LEVC CEO, is sure that the e-camper will be revolutionary as customers will be able to enjoy nature without endangering it with the camper’s internal combustion engine.
“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,” he said. “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.”
LEVC sees huge potential across the UK and Europe. In partnership with Wellhouse Leisure, first deliveries of the e-Camper, with an indicative list price of £62,250 / €73,000, will take place in Q4 2021. Prospective customers can register their interest at levc.com/ecamper.
