All-Electric RV Line Coming Soon from SylvanSport
In a partnership with Zeus Electric Chassis, the all-electric project is code-named "Leading the Charge".
SylvanSport announces development of an all-electric motorhome line, as reported by RV News.
The company is collaborating with Zeus Electric Chassis Inc. on new product development. The manufacturer said new technologies will be used to eliminate emissions, reduce waste and provide water recycling solutions.
“From the inception of SylvanSport in 2004, we knew that our innovations in product design would one day lead to the creation of a class-leading, all-electric motorhome,” said Tom Dempsey, SylvanSport founder and CEO. “Zeus’s technology advances, from chassis design to energy storage and management, are helping us to achieve this in the most forward-thinking, environmentally clean way.”
SylvanSport is most known in the market for its GO camping trailer, an equipment hauler, and sleeper trailer for up to four people.
“As we look to the future of transportation and clean energy, our vision is to bring vehicle electrification to the outdoor recreation and RV industry,” said Wayne Kugel, Zeus Electric Chassis CEO. “With SylvanSport’s experience and leadership in these industries combined with our expertise in electric vehicles, this collaboration is the best of both worlds.”
The RVs are expected to be brought to life beginning in 2022, according to Zeus Chief Technology Officer, Bob Grinstead.
“Unmatched off-road travel, extended vehicle range, and unexpectedly high vehicle weight capacity are just a few never before seen features in an electric RV,” Grinstead said.
