It stands to reason that the next big revolution in the RV world is electrification. Yet unlike their commercial and consumer equivalents, camper vans and recreational vehicles have very different demands on power, range and space. What might suit a short-range city delivery service won’t necessarily suit a long-range, off-grid camping vehicle, where survivability is key, and the reliability of a gas-powered generator will always trump a solar array. Nevertheless, the market is changing and EV camper concepts and actual products are starting to appear. Here’s our selection of what to look out for in the world of zero-emission van living.
