LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) has revealed first impressions of its new leisure vehicle, the new e-Camper. The world’s first electric campervan, e-Camper is optimised to offer both zero-emission capability with zero range anxiety.
First deliveries of e-Camper will take place in Q4 2021.
Based on VN5, LEVC’s new electric van, e-Camper has the same pure EV range of over 60 miles (98 km) with a total flexible range of 304 miles (489 km). Its range extender technology allows owners to travel off the beaten track, where there is no or limited charging infrastructure.
At the same time, owners can operate in zero emissions mode, ideal for the campsite and also even powering the integrated electric kitchenette without the need for fossil fuels.
Joerg Hofmann, CEO of LEVC, says: “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 manufactures its purpose-built, range extended electric TX taxi and TX shuttle models at a state-of-the-art UK factory. Since 2014, Geely has invested more than £500m into LEVC, allowing it to build an entirely new eco-friendly manufacturing facility, the UK’s first dedicated to the production of electric vehicles.
In November 2020, LEVC started production of its first non-taxi model with the launch of VN5, a medium-sized electric van.
