EarthCruiser introduced an overlanding van, the Evado. The Evado is built on the Ford Transit and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter all-wheel-drive (AWD) chassis.
“For years, we have had inquiries from customers wondering why we do not offer an EC model built on a van platform, when seemingly everyone does,” EarthCruiser founder Lance Gillies said. “Now, with Ford and Mercedes offering body-on-frame (also known as cab-chassis) AWD options for the Ford AWD Transit and Mercedes AWD Sprinter in the United States, we are confident we can produce true overlanding capable vehicles on a van platform.”
Consumers can select a bicycle storage option. The storage area accommodates two bikes and consumers can stand up in the pass-through compartment.
EarthCruiser will offer customization packages featuring aftermarket accessories and add-ons to enable consumers to tailor the van. The packages feature light bars, microwaves and extended power storage.
“This expansion of the EC line is part of our larger plans to offer more chassis choices to our customers,” Gillies said, “as technology brings more opportunities for our customers.”
