LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) has revealed first impressions of its new leisure vehicle, the new e-Camper. The vehicle is claimed to be the world’s first electric campervan, and the company says it is optimised to offer both zero-emission capability with zero range anxiety, “making it the perfect way to explore the great outdoors with the benefit of low environmental impact”.
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.”
First deliveries of e-Camper, with an indicative list price (excl VAT) of £62,250 / €73,000, will take place in the fourth quarter of 2021. Prospective customers can register their interest online.
Based on VN5, LEVC’s new electric van, e-Camper has the same pure EV range of over 60 miles with a total flexible range of 304 miles.
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.
For outdoor leisure activities such as mountain biking and surfing, e-Camper will support a range of proprietary racks.
