LEVC unveils e-Camper range-extender electric camper

The e-Camper electric campervan can sleep up to four people, has a pure-electric range of 60 miles and a total range of 304 miles; prices start from £62,650 excluding VAT

LEVC e-Camper

LEVC, the company behind the electric range-extender London black cab, has unveiled its first electric campervan. The e-Camper is based on the brand’s existing VN5 range-extender van.

It can accommodate up to four people, with sleeping space for two in the pop-up roof, while the second-row bench seats can be folded down to create a double bed. In the rear, the e-Camper also features an integrated electric kitchenette and central folding table.

Not only does the new campervan share styling cues with the VN5, but it also uses the same eCity powertrain as its commercial sibling, technically making the e-Camper a range-extender. That means, unlike a typical battery-electric vehicle (BEV) like a Nissan Leaf or Tesla Model 3, the e-Camper has a petrol-engine generator under its bonnet that can recharge the 31kWh battery when needed.

Due to that relatively small battery size, the e-Camper has a pure-electric range of 60 miles. However, LEVC claims the campervan has a total range of up to 304 miles when the range-extender is employed. The main advantage of this powertrain is there are fewer limitations when it comes to range and needing to recharge, but of course this solution does still require the use of fossil fuels.

LEVC CEO Joerg Hofmann said of the forthcoming e-Camper: “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're still powered by petrol or diesel engines.” He added: “Our 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.”

Prices for the e-Camper in the UK start from £62,250 (excluding VAT), with deliveries expected to begin towards the end of the year.
