SylvanSport is developing an all-electric motorhome line, in partnership with Zeus Electric Chassis Inc.
The companies said they are collaborating on new product development.
“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’s all-electric RVs line is code-named “Leading the Charge,” The manufacturer said new technologies to eliminate emissions, reduce waste and provide water recycling solutions will be used.
“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.”
Zeus Chief Technology Officer Bob Grinstead said the RVs will be brought to life beginning in 2022.
“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.
