London Electric Vehicle Company debuts its first electric campervan

London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) has revealed details about its e-Camper – a vehicle it claims will be the world’s first electric campervan. The vehicle will be optimised to offer both zero-emission capability and zero range anxiety, making it the ideal way to explore the great outdoors with low environmental impact.

Based on the VN5, 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 features range extender technology that will bring users peace of mind when camping far from charging infrastructure.

Joerg Hofmann, CEO of LEVC, said: “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.”

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. 

With a class-leading tight turning circle, e-Camper is also easy to manoeuvre in any environment. 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.

LEVC has a history dating back to 1908 when it designed and built the first ev er ‘black cab’ for use in London.
